You can hook up the camera and capture the pictures directly in monkeyjam. No need to import.
Click on new or insert a new layer.
Click capture->Video (or photocam symbol)
Mode->stopmotion, Image hold: one (otherwise it takes two at a time).
Maybee you want to assign a name that makes sense for the image series.
Now happy capturing.
After that you close the capture window and there you can delete, move, copy, lengthen frames and so on.
Then click on movie-preview or change the fps under settings.
Now click on Movie -> build.
Change the export size to something like 320x240 - 640x480, but flash can resize it afterwards.
Since Flash will compress your video anyway, use something good quality. Maybee Intel indeo, cinepaq on low compression or no compression at all (not recomended).
You will have to ad sounds either in flash, or if you dont have flash (well, if others read this) they can use Zweistein to cut, edit, insert sound... (see software links on page one of this thread).
http://Audacity.sf.net is a great tool for recording sounds and voice by the way.
Also, if you dotn have flash, i have listed a few programs that can make Flash files out of AVI, even if you dont have flash. But flash can compress them better....
There is a small overview of monkeyjam's functions at his site:

I've been looking at this monkeyjam program.
Is how exactly would it work? I have a camera, i take all the frames of my stopmotion, import them all into monkeyjam. But i can't find anyway to import sounds onto it.
So, if were to create it all with no sounds on monkeyjam, export it as one of the video files (could you suggest one, there are so many ^^) Then import that video into flash where i can add sounds. Would that work? or is there a way to add sound onto monkeyjam which i've overlooked?
