I'm using Helium Frog as an easy peasy stop animation program on netbooks.
As with a few things on netbooks, the 1024x600 display makes things a little tricky but I've found out that the author has open-sourced his code and I can see that it would be trivial to alter the video preview window to default to opening a little smaller than it does and put the toolbox to the left of it rather than below as it does now.
Anyway - I've got an old copy of VB6 but I'm no expert in it (I went from VB4 to VC++ 6) and it exits the prog at a certain point with an error when running it from the source code and I was wondering if some of you older geekers are experts in VB6 and could download the source and give it a whirl and see if it works for you and maybe tell me what extra library/setting I need to do to get it working.
A bit of google xreferencing seems to have done the trick
I needed to download the fsfwrap.dll and capstill.dll from Visual Basic and DirectShow and then use regsvr32 xxxx.dll and I'm now up and running
PS And I've now read the instructions in the comments at the beginning of the program
