I am curious to know how, or if, the rest of you are using video reference.  I occasionally film myself to plan a shot and pick my favorite poses and retime them to better suit the animation.  What I…Continue

"I tested for flicker caused by the voltage changing, by clipping a multimeter to the power, and placing it in front of the camera. Other houses and factories in the neighborhood could affect the voltage, not just what is happening in my own house.…"

"haha. Yeah, I wish the furnace was heating my studio. I'm out there with ice sickles, happily animating away with frosty toes, but the heat goes inside to warm my family. I agree though, no furnace turning on solves the problem. Thanks Strider.…"

"Ok, watched it a few times for flicker. I see it but only in the shadows on the lower face and below it, on the upper shirt. Not on the brightly lit walls behind the puppets at all. So I don't think it's furnace flicker - looks more like…"

Strider replied to Adam Taylor's discussion "Experimenting"
"The simplest way to fix it without messing with wiring is to put on a layer or two of clothes and shut off the furnace until the shot is done. That's for shots you haven't already done of course. "

"Thanks for the feedback Nick. Sorry, I meant flicker. I did my best to get rid of it in after effects but I can't seem to get it completely gone. The last bit of dialog is "copy mine" but it gets cut off going into the next shot.…"

"Experimenting"

This is a quick shot from a 30 second short that I am working on. I'm trying to get a more natural feel to the animation in this one. Your feedback is welcome. Thanks.There's some strobing which I'm pretty sure is caused by the heater turning on and sapping power. What's the least obtrusive fix for that? I'm renting the place and can't mess with the wiring.See More
