I have used a standard 29in desk height for both working on the computer and animating (two separate desks). However, I'm unsure if that's really the recommended height for a stop-motion desk. I have read in places that higher desks are better, but I don't really stand during animation (because my floor is kinda shaky, I tend to sit in one spot continually, which, unfortunately makes it difficult to animate, but that's a story for another day). But in other places, I have read that stop-motion is better on a lower desk.
So the question I have is, what's the ideal stop-motion desk height? What do you use? Is there no standard, and it's just personal preference?
I noticed in the recent Phil Tippett videos featuring the HoloChess set from SW Ep. 7, that the table they animated on was at standing elbow height.
I'm 195cm tall, and I like the table to be between 100 and 120cm tall, depending on what I'm doing. 110cm is approx standing elbow height for me.
But in future I'd like to try something a bit higher. For CU shots etc, the aforementioned height hurts my back after a while. Haven't looked into adjustable height tables yet though. Will probably look at that once I've built the new studio.
