Here is the newest bit - a sneeze.  It will need lightening in Photoshop before editing.

Great fun doing this piece, although I was so crowded by the camera pushed up to the cave entrance that I could barely work the little fellow.

I wish I had drawn the sneeze out just a bit more, but had a tight deadline today.

Very nice!! Give the poor green guy some chicken soup, or whatever goblins eat. Hope he gets better soon.

So, were you able to get rid of those pesky bad pixels? Thousands of readers are waiting with baited breath to discover if any of those techniques worked! 

I also hope he gets well soon - I have several more scenes to shot with him . . . I sure hope his wire armature lasts!

The pesky stuck pixels are still there - I tried the video fix several times, with no luck.  ( May try it a few more times for good measure)

With my Nikon, apparently there is no way for one to do a home-fix. I will end up taking it to a licensed dealer and let them send it to one of the few Nikon repair shops left in the country.  

Thanks for the info, however - at least I know what the problem is!

I am going to just paint them out in Photoshop on this movie, and then send it in - I don't want to be without the camera at this time and on top of that, I have read that I will likely end up with new stuck pixels in the future, given the way I am using this camera ( on for up to 5 hours or more at a stretch).

Oh man, sorry to hear about the abominable pixels that wouldn't die. One thing that can help is to keep the camera cool - some people fix up little computer cooling fans aimed at the camera. But even that won't completely fix the problem - eventually it's still going to shut down and force you to take little animation breaks. 

Animation that good is not to be sneezed at!  Really, nice timing with that.

I didn't notice the bad pixels in this resolution.  But I don't consider that an acceptable standard and I certainly hope Nikon don't either.

Mary and Max had lots of trouble with hot pixels on their Canons (1d Mk IIs), and had to fix up a few shots in post.  I don't think I've seen a hot, dead, or stuck pixel on my Canon 40d or NikonD50 yet, I'm starting to feel like I lucked out in the pixel lottery.

Ha! Thanks!

I am about to start cleaning up the stuck pixels on this shot right now - I suspect I will be doing this for some time to come.

I need to see if I can shut everything down in mid-shot and be able to pick up again later without any obvious shifting.  The problem is that I need to physically move the on/off switch on the camera, and I am afraid I might knock it ever so slightly off target.  Hmmm . . .
