Hi there, I was just wondering if many people use the software and where I could find the numbers.  Out of curiosity really. Cause I spoke to an old friend who is a stop-motion animator, and she told me she uses Adobe After Effects!!??Continue

Some shots from Finity Calling

Started by Jasper Kuipers in YOUR STOPMO FILM PROJECT. Last reply by Jasper Kuipers on Monday. 10 Replies

Hi everyone!It has been a while since I posted something from this project I am working on titled Finity Calling. I showed some work in progress, props and puppets earlier but no animation yet. The reason is that I spent the last 13 months animating on animating and I didn't find the time to put something up really. So the good news is that I just finished my last shot a couple of days ago!I am very happy to show a couple of the shots here. All of these are straight out of the studio, so no postproduction work is done on them yet. That's the next phase. :)Continue

Best wire rigging for a 6 inch action figure

Started by KK Akuoku in ANIMATION TOOLS & EQUIPMENT. Last reply by StopmoNick Jun 17. 1 Reply

Right now, I am working with 24 gauge aluminum wire, but I discovered that it's far too weak to hold my action figure up, even with a weight plate stabilizing it. I'm thinking about using a (twisted) thicker gauged wire so it can effectively stay in place. Does anyone have any some suggestions or alternatives?

My Silicone Cast "Sweats" Oil, what's going on?

Started by bigbossross in STOPMO NEWBIES. Last reply by Simon Tytherleigh Jun 13. 13 Replies

Hey everybody,  I have been practicing casting Platsil gel-10 and Ecoflex-30 and have run into an issue with the casts seeping oil. At first the cast appears great and seems to have cured fine, but after leaving it out of the mold for several hours it accumulates quite a bit of oil on the surface. I've wiped it off several times but it keeps seeping out. I tried a test cast using my mold and only platsil gel and the cast did not seep oil. This gives me some confidence that my mold is not contaminated. I also tried a test cast using only ecoflex and it did not seep oil (though this was not done in my mold, but in a cup). The issue SEEMS to be when there is a Platsil gel-10 skin backed with ecoflex30. Like te ecoflex is leeching oil only through the platsil gel skin  I'm not sure what I've done wrong, here is what i'm working with:  My mold is made of ultracal30. The mold came out rather porous, causing the silicone to stick so I brushed on a little Johnson's Paste Wax diluted with VM&P Naptha. Before casting I sprayed a bit of Mann 200 mold release into the mold as well.    I then brushed on two layers of lightly tinted Platsil-Gel thickened with very little Thivex silicone thickener. The cast was then filled with lightly tinted Ecoflex-30 (which i mixed very well to incorporate the solids that settled in the tub).. no retarders or dilutants.  Would it be safe to continue to wipe off the oil using naptha, until it stop seeping? It seems to seep less as I continue to wipe it down. Do you think it would accept paint after a week or so of wiping the skin down repeatedly?  Thanks for reading!Continue
