"You could check out Krita, it's a free Photoshop alternative that has damn good animation capabilities. You can load your frames into the app and paint over them in the same way you'd do it in Photoshop."

Clay that glows under black light

Started by Don Carlson in CLAY. Last reply by PupCup on Monday. 6 Replies

Hi folks, been tinkering with some UV-reactive pigments, and finally got something working.I give you... Puppet Putty GLOW!The lighting is just a novelty Halloween party bulb, so this would work better under a true black light, which can be simulated by taking out the visible frequencies to get this: Blue is not possible yet, but I can make it in Yellow, Orange, Red, Red-Orange, Pink, and Toy Green. Even if you don't do much with clay, maybe you could use it for special effects? There are clays like this, but they don't melt. This one does, and you can pour it into silicone molds for more options. :DContinue

The Dinner ~~ graduation short

Started by Matthieu FOUQUET in YOUR STOPMO FILM PROJECT. Last reply by Matthieu FOUQUET Sep 12. 5 Replies

hello everyone, My name's Matthieu and I've been working on a stop-motion short film for my graduation at EMCA (France). I wanted to share some pictures of it with you. It is called The Dinner and by the end of September, it will be finished. It's talking about slavery in relationships through well, kind of cannibalism. (but softer) Puppets are > 10.5 inches and in wood so it was a bit difficult to handle as they were a bit heavy. But hey, who doesn't need to learn how to use a rig? i hope you will soon have an access to it so i can have some feedback ^^ Also, I'm looking for work now, anywhere anytime, i'm ready to travel \o_ Se ya!

Flicker Problem During Production

Started by Chua Jia Jun Gerald in CAMERA & STAGE. Last reply by Geoff Clark Sep 10. 8 Replies

Hello Everyone!I'm doing a stop motion project in my university and I encountered a flicker problem during one of my shots. I am using Canon 7D + Dragonframe 3.7.1 + 1 Arri 300W + 3 Dedolights.I have 20 Canon 7D cameras in the lab and 13 of them have flickering problems - inconsistent exposures/brightness.Questions:1. Were the flickering problems caused by the camera or the lights?2. What is wrong with the cameras? Faulty? Old? Sensor overused? Turned on for too long?3. Could the problem caused by Dedolights being near to the camera?Do help me understand the problem. I will like to recommend solutions to my lab technicians for future classes. Thank you!- GeraldContinue

Hey there! Been a while since I last posted anything, but I decided to get off my butt and make something. Here's a video of a bat puppet I built and animated. Hopefully I can get a couple more animations with it before the wires break on me.Continue
