It's great! Now that QT X has stupidly stopped having this function, this little software comes in really handy... :)

This is a great program! It works well AND is free, there's no downside to it! Great for kids or creative adults.

Here's what we did with it at our art gallery

Great - it can now properly make movies from imported images!

But - Drag and Drop seems to have stopped working for importing images. Thankfully "Edit > Import Images" still works, so no big deal.

I wish there was a way to save a quicktime reference move from FrameByFrame, but its not a deal-breaker, especially at the price of free!

works well with instantshot which can take multiple screenshots at timed intervals

I think it's pretty good. One question: What's the highest quality it can output?

Awesome program, but - warning - watch out for a bug i found the hard way: if you have more than 256 frames in a document, it will crash when you try to save and you will lose any work since the last time you saved.

Also, frames over #253 it seems will not be saved.

Happened to my students on several different machines running OS X 10.6 and 10.7. So just make sure split your project to a new file before you get to 250 frames! If you find that you're over, do an Export (Not Quick Export - that crashes too) before trying to save, because Export seems to work fine on projects over 256 frames.

I've emailed the developer about it and hopefully it can be fixed.

Cool idea, but when i try to load into it a sequence of pics from a digital camera, each frame in the exported movie is either offset so the center of the pic is in the top left corner of the movie with the rest of the picture black, or is really pixelated (as if it were reading the image preview instead of the actual image). Images are 460x480, shot with a Canon G2. OS X 10.5.4.
