Considering the software takes photos and allows you to turn that into a stop frame animation, I believed that you could take the photos externally and upload them into dragon frame in the same way you could photoshop etc. However this doesn’t appear to be the case.
The only image upload I could find was the line up image upload, and when I uploaded this photo of part of the flipbook I had created
Unfortunately because the image was portrait the software kept turning it automatically, and proved impossible to rotate to the correct way, even after changing the canvas direction.
This is what happened when I tried to rotate the image and mirror it, the rotate option only works in one way, unlike a programme like photoshop which allows you to rotate it the full way and then manually mirror it.
So I decided to retake the photos, make sure they were all portrait and although there would be dark bits at the side of each frame, at least they would be facing the right way.
Luckily this worked, at least this is one step closer to turning the flip book into a small few second stop frame. Next due to the software not accepting the photos coming from a memory card, I will have to find the connecting cable for the camera and a computer.
