So, after I thought everything was all fine and dandy with the two shots I just made, I exported the high-res image sequence and, well, just look at what happened:
Although, I think that the firefeets turned out pretty swell! Anyways, it's back to reshooting them again!
I've been using a free trial of Dragon Stop Motion software (http://www.dragonstopmotion.com/), and have found it to be pretty good. Here's my review:
-you can onionskin your live feed with frames you just shot
-you can easily playback the frames you just shot including your live feed
-you can easily delete frames
-you can draw on your screen to help with markers and measurements
-all the functions have hotkeys on your numbpad
