"From what I could see on Coraline and Paranorman, the approach was a mix of one's and two's (this is a tradition that started when the studio bore a different name and goes back 30 years). Fast stuff on one's, slow stuff on two's…"

"It's the live view that causes the heating.  I read about the early RED cameras having the same issue, with some cameramen using ice packs on the camera to keep them cool in hot conditions. A simple solution is used by Miles and Jules for…"

"The easiest thing, shooting digitally, is to just shoot  at 12 frames per second.  Then, in most editing and post production software  you can change the frame rate/double the duration up to 24 fps with each frame showing twice.…"

"Hi Nick,Thanks, I was worried the map shots (about 4 or 5 through out the film) were too short.  They were an after thought and I squeezed them in to an already edited sequence, so I didnt have to move the music or any dialogue.  In…"

"The map looked good I think, but the shot was too short to really take it in. Long enough to recognise North America, but not  enough to really get where exactly you are.  If you just slow it to half speed, even if it becomes a bit steppy,…"

Stop mo in VW roadtrip documenatry

Hi, I haven't been on here for ages and can't find my old thread, so I've started a new one.  Here is my finished stop motion segment as part of the completed film.   scene at 1:50 I had planned on shooting a couple more scenes, but ran out of time so settled on a simple progress map (at 6:46).   How do you think it works as part of the bigger piece?See More

"'Shooting on 2s' is a term used for animating on film really - when you're working digitally you just switch to 12 fps. On film the only way to do it is by actually shooting 2 physical frames each time you move things around.  Of…"

Frame rate and shooting on 2s what to do/ help.

Hi, I'm really new to stop motion and have been trying out various frame rates but am mostly sticking to 24p for no particular reason.  after my first couple of attempts I switched to shooting in/on twos (1photo for 2 frames) as I have read that a lot of animators recommend  this.mainly I want to know if there are any advantages to shooting in 24 frames per sec on 2s or would it be just the same as 12 frames per second shooting in singles, I'm assuming it would be the same but I might be missing something?See More

Making a Ball and Socket Armature by Welding

Its been some time but I'm back. I was just learning how to weld in my sculpture class and I was wondering about making a ball and socket armature with welding. The main question I have is would I still need to drill a hole into the ball bearing to fit the rod (they do have a drill press at the school) or can I just flat out weld the rod onto the bearing?See More

Mike replied to Mike's discussion DSLR Full-Manual (avoiding flicker) extremely confused.
"Thanks Dennis. I had seen the Dragonframe FAQ, but that forum post seems like it may confirm that newer Nikons (at least the same line as the D5200) may not be as improved as would be ideal for stop-motion. 1 and a 1/2 hours is not a very long time.…"

"This page from the Dragonframe website might be of interest to anyone mulling over the Canon vs Nikon for stop motion question.  It would seem that newer Nikons "may not" have the overheating problem that earlier models do.…"

A bargain of lenses on ebay, Are these good?

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Vintage-Minolta-XG-1-Camera-lenses-flashes-filters-accessories-HUGE-lot-/151277674103?pt=US_Vintage_Cameras&hash=item2338da1e77&_uhb=1I just saw this on ebay a few hours ago.  I was thinking if the whole lot was good.  Do I need to buy different adapters for the lenses or do they all have M42 screw mounts?  Are the lenses too old to be used for the newer EOS cameras? Thanks! I will be patiently waiting for your recommendations. :)Regards, A.M. LorenzoSee More
