I have been using istopmotion software (which is perfect) and imovie 06 very happily with a club at the school I teach in until now. When we aquired new Macs we made the mistake of upgrading to imovie o9; This seems to be hopeless as an editing tool for stop motion frames and films. Other than going back in time what is the best option; Final Cut Express? We want something that can handle individual frames when editing. imovie seems to be geared towards well, movies and limited as a creative tool unless you stick to the script. Any thoughts and advice much appreciated.

FramebyFrame looks pretty cool and very easy to use.

If you already have all of the photos, you can use Final Cut Express, it will allow you to set a single image to as little as a single frame. FCE gives you a lot of power as it is a stripped down version of FCP but still maintains a significant amount of capability. If you need more advanced extra editing options (audio, video, multiple video tracks, filters, effects, etc) it's a good tool to look at.

of course there is a significant cost difference - $free (framebyframe) vs $199 (FCE unless they've changed the price)

My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Debian as a server; Apple TV (1080p version)
