Need help (upgrading light setup)

Started by animator15648 in ANIMATION TOOLS & EQUIPMENT. Last reply by animator15648 6 hours ago. 2 Replies

Hey guys,I want to upgrade my lights but confused about whether to buy LED lights or photography lights with a softbox. From what I can tell, the softbox lights use fluorescent lights which I think are bad for stop motion animation as they flicker? Can someone please guide me on which one to buy. Here are some links on the 2 options of light kits I confused about.https://www.amazon.com/Julius-Studio-Lighting-Photography-JSAG344V2/dp/B075NV9N99/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=light+kit+studio&qid=1594454278&sr=8-6vshttps://www.amazon.com/LimoStudio-Dimmable-Temperature-Continuous-AGG1684V3/dp/B016NDM99M/ref=sr_1_29?dchild=1&keywords=light+kit+studio+led&qid=1594454327&sr=8-29Thank you!Note: those links are not the ones I am specifically buying but they are just for reference.Continue

Rigging bits in Australia - not overseas?

Started by Allan Begolo-Wyatt in STOPMO NEWBIES. Last reply by Allan Begolo-Wyatt yesterday. 2 Replies

Hey chaps.My name is Allan - I've worked on and off in the video industry for years but just decided with the latest Victorian lockdown to follow my dreams and start animating some stop motion bits and pieces. It's all extremely rough stuff that I've done using clay I've bought from Spotlight just before everything went to pieces. Anyway - I digress - what I'm looking for is a place to find rigging supplies in Melbourne. It's become abundantly clear that I can't do much with clay alone - and I also have a commercial project that will require animating some action figures - both of which seem borderline impossible to do without some way of holding the figures steady.So the question I'm here to ask is - where can I get supplies in Australia for this sort of stuff? Coronavirus has sorta put a block in getting anything from overseas currently - and I noticed that StopMoNick is actually from Melbourne and might have some ideas. :)Thanks,Allan.Continue

fixing the puppet with screws

Started by Shigeru Okada in ANIMATOR TALK. Last reply by Shigeru Okada yesterday. 6 Replies

Hello,I'm a stop motion animator based in Japan.I would like to know how to make a screw hole accurately according to the position where I want the puppet to stand.Now I use a paper cut in the shape of a foot. I put it under the puppet's foot. After removing the puppet, I drill a hole at the position of the hole of paper. There is very little information in Japan because the method of fixing the puppet with screws is not used very often. I would like to know what method is used in other countries.Continue

Dragonframe real-time recording

Started by Max Bridge in ANIMATION TOOLS & EQUIPMENT. Last reply by Max Bridge on Saturday. 2 Replies

Hey everyone, First post here. I know this is a stop-motion site but I can't seem to find a forum elsewhere for this. I'd trying to build a motion control rig for product videos. There's nothing out there which suits my needs so I thought I'd build something. The mechanics is all good but I'm having trouble figuring out how to connect it to some software. I had my heart set on Dragonframe but it seems you cannot do real-time moves, as they call it, using Arduino unless you buy their very expensive DMC-16 unit. If anyone can help me with the following it would be amazing:1) Is there a way to connect to Dragonframe using Arduino and do real-time moves? Am I missing something? 2) If not, can anyone suggest an alternate system? Really appreciate any help here. Thanks! Continue

Moving water in a scene

Started by Dave Cooley in STOPMO NEWBIES. Last reply by Dave Cooley on Friday. 22 Replies

Trying to find a simple way to animate the surface of a lake that will allow me to focus on animating two characters rowing a boat across it. I am not overly concerned with realism and will accept something a bit cartoony.The attached clip shows a brief test I did this afternoon using plastic wrap over a blue painted table top. With a bit of practice this might do the trick, but was wondering if there were any better ideas out there.Continue

Salt Lamp Sub?

Started by Georgia Madden in MODEL DEPARTMENT. Last reply by Georgia Madden on Thursday. 4 Replies

Hi there,I'm looking to animate a Himalayan salt lamp crumbling and was wondering if anyone has any ideas for materials I could use to build a mock (but realistic looking) lamp I could break apart? Ideally, it would be something lightweight and semi-transparent??Cheers, Georgia :-))Continue
