I keep meaning to do a new showreel, but I'm waiting for a couple of films I worked on to give me the all-clear. One of them has been caught up in a very slow post production process.
In the meantime, here's my old one from…"
"Now I have a flicker issue, affecting mostly the greenscreen. It could be the two 150 halogen floodlights (from the hardware store) that light the greenscreen, although I have used them for a couple of years now with no issues before. Or…"
"I often have a shot with a night scene outside the window.
I have a light with blue gel, rigged to shine light in through the window. An alternative, if you don't know where to get lighting gel, is to use coloured cellophane.…"
"Nick and Lauri have given you great advice so far. Nick is right about DF having an aspect ratio mask option within Dragonframe which, as Nick mentioned, overlays a mask so you can be sure to set up your shots for the aspect ratio you are using. A…"
"Noise should not be a problem because you can keep the ISO as low as you want and just make exposure time longer.
Biggest problem in my opinion when lighting night scenes with greenscreens is that you easily get awful green glow to the shadows from…"
"Yes, thanks, I think that first of all I will try to get the right lights to use and if this won't work I will just edit it. It's probably just my personal nostalgia and wish to make everything without a pc. I probably will post some…"
"To help with noise, you can try turning the ISO down and opening the aperture wider. That will help reduce noise and still absorb a lot of light. As far as lighting itself, a soft light with a blue or purple color is pretty common for a night scene.…"
"If it is night, and the only source of light is the moon, unless you are seeing the moon through the window, can you not just rig a light with some blue gel to cast the right shadows?
If you are seeing the moon, perhaps having the light a bit higher…"
"Well, it might not be that, but as the flickering seems to have stopped.... I've learnt a lot along the way!
For the footage that was flickering all over the place, I adjusted each frame in the camera RAW dialog box so the histograms were as…"
"In order to give animators another outlet to showcase their work, we have added a category for Show Reels at StopMoShorts. So if you have a reel uploaded to Vimeo or Youtube, then send us a link or post it here so we can get you up on StopMoShorts.…"
"Difficult to say exactly. I was working on it on and off between other things. I know all the metal bits were cut and drilled the same day. Some were epoxied later and left to cure overnight. The plastic bits took about 1-2 days each to sculpt, then…"
Can someone give me some advice about flicker, please?I am using a Canon 600d with manual lenses, linked to Dragonframe on a Macbook. The frame in the Live View was flickering badly - it looked like some bars were moving up the picture. I could even…Continue
Hey everyone! I'm working on my new stop motion right now (as you could have seen because of the pictures I'm posting from time to time) and I have a question, yes even a problem with the light. I am working with a room made out of three walls and a…Continue
Hi guys. I understand this probably isn't the right place to ask but this is the only online community I know that has experience with editing/after effect/YouTube.Im recently trying to upload a video on YouTube as seen here…Continue
