Why is no image of me showing up, in order to record (see what I'm recording)?

Hello -

I’ve called Apple and had a techie help me make sure my laptop’s built-in camera (iSight) is working which it is…but for some reason my istopmotion (version 2.0) isn’t working this time (has in the past, though used infrequently) because it’s not showing an image of that which is to be recorded. Just a gray screen. In the past when that happened, I’d monkey around with it enough to eventually get an image of myself to show up but this time nothing’s working. Might it be that I need a more current version? Any thoughts? My computer is a Mac Book Pro. Thanks!

Is there a reason you are using 2.0 instead of the free update to 2.8.x?
