Adam Taylor replied to SeldomSummer's discussion B&S Armature - Replaceable Hands
"By making a small dent with a nail in the receiving piece of K&S you can create a nice pressure fit for the inserted piece.  Then there is no necessity for an additional wire or nut and screw. Another method that I have used it to run a…"

Adam Taylor replied to NamNam's discussion Animatable eyebrows and beards
"Sounds like you could try a version with more interior structure (stronger wire? foam build up? etc.) so that you can use much less latex on the surface.  Depending on how transparent your latex is, you probably only want a skin of the rubber…"

Adam Taylor replied to Jamie's discussion Best free or cheap software with live capture
"Here is a free one that was just shown to me.  It is cloud based, so you get 50MB up front.  After you create a free login you have 500MB to use. https://cloudstopmotion.com/"

Adam Taylor replied to NamNam's discussion Animatable eyebrows and beards
"What is your puppet's head made of?  If it is a plastic or polymer clay, you can use just about any material for the eyebrows. You can create your eyebrows from clay and they would stick on.  Felted wool would work with a bit of…"

Adam Taylor replied to Mark Francombe's discussion Canon EOS + Nikon dragonframe combo... Im talking about the "flickering"
"The Nikon Ai-S AiS NIKKOR 55mm f/2.8 Micro MF Lens is amazing.  You can find them for around 100 USD on ebay, shipping from Japan.  The Nikon Ai-S line of lenses is fantastic. You just need a converter ring to use them on your Canon camera…"

Adam Taylor replied to NamNam's discussion How tight should ball and socket joints be?
"Yes, you can tension joints during a shot. It is often a pain in the neck to get into those joints from whatever odd angle you are animating, but if it will help your shot, do it. I tension feet/ankles during a walk so when they need to hold the…"

Adam Taylor replied to NamNam's discussion How tight should ball and socket joints be?
