"I have been struggling to work out how they linked everything in the Two Balloons clip, and your concept of a frame and dowels with cams makes more sense. Above the cam frame would need to be some structure to support the rod followers. Once set up,…"

"I hadn't looked at that link Simon posted, to the Two Balloons ocean, when I wrote all that - Amazing!  Similar idea to my camshafts, but with strings to operate the rods.  A bit too complex for me to follow, but it works brilliantly.…"

"One way is several rows of cut-out waves.  It is a very stylised 2d look, which is fine if that is the style you want.  A friend did this for a student film, alternating rows of waves moved left and right.   A fancier version for big…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Aksel's discussion Animating Water?
"Ok, so this one will blow your mind... https://vimeo.com/225689550 As far as I can see, it uses a single motor to make a load of rods move up and down. The rods hold up a wrinkled sheet of plastic that simulates the small waves, and so you get…"

Dennis Heinzeroth replied to Aksel's discussion Animating Water?
"What scale, style and action? Is it miles of open, cartoony water that's nice and calm or is it a close-up section of water around a realistic 1:7 scale life boat and puppet with a slight chop in the waves? Or a scene like a Jason Bourne…"

"Try clay. I had the same issue in one of my projects and I decided to cut it out in my project. You might end up better doing your own green screen. Get a large pan, put in water, dye it blue, then make sure from the camera you can't see the…"

Does anybody have an Idea on how to animate a large body of water like an ocean? I saw wiki how did a small stream with hair gel, but that would be hard for a ocean! Green screen might work too, but I don't want to spend very much money and IMovie's green screen is kind of junky.See More

StopmoNick replied to Aksel's discussion What kind of latex?
"I prefer silicone for smooth skinned characters, because it doesn't form little wrinkles when compressed like foam latex does. For the heads of 3 child characters, silicone was the best choice.  But for scale wrinkly monsters that is not a…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Aksel's discussion What kind of latex?
"Latex and silicone are really quite different, and it is difficult to say one is better than the other without knowing the context. I like using silicone for character heads, and it makes good-looking hands too. But latex is great for monsters,…"

"I was wondering about the liquid latex skin, but do you think latex is better than sillicone?"

StopmoNick replied to Aksel's discussion What kind of latex?
"Do you mean covering with liquid latex skins?  Or casting in foam latex? Richard Svensson has a lot of videos showing how he makes his monster puppets using soft urethane foam and latex skins to cover them. His Youtube channel is Bluworm:…"
