"I'm not familiar with Stopmotion Pro, so can't help. Maybe someone else has the answer. My suspicion is that once you have captured and saved the frames, they are set in that orientation, so would need another program to readjust them.…"

"In After Effects you adjust the 'x' Scale to -100%. In an editor like Premiere you need a horizontal flip, or might be able to do the same scale adjustment."

Stop motion pro help

Hi Guys,Sorry if I put this in the wrong area, wasn't exactly sure where this question goes. So I'm helping my partner make a stop motion film using stop motion pro and at the beginning of filming she noticed that the pictures were mirrored, unfortunately she assumed you could fix it later but she hasn't found a way to do that yet.She's found the button that changes the live view to make the new photos not mirrored but I guess my question is does anyone know How To un-mirror the photos she's…See More

"Just want to throw in my 2 cents on cameras: In my experience, Canon Rebels have been the best value for shooting stop-motion. There's no difference as far as image quality goes when compared to the more expensive cameras. I've shot many…"

"Make sure the lens is in good condition. The things that are not acceptable are scratches on the lens elements, oil on the iris blades and fungus inside the lens. A decent camera dealer will give a report on the condition. In the UK the lens goes…"

"And, to answer your actual question.... Nikon made an AI f 3.5 55mm, but did not make an AI-S version except in the f2.8. Hence your Google issues."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Alex's discussion Stop Motion dslr
"Here's a link to a review of the lens, and a historical overview of the different versions. It looks like the pre-AI version had slightly different optics, but it doesn't appear that there was much to choose between…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Alex's discussion Stop Motion dslr
"Hi Alex The difference is how wide the aperture will go at its maximum. So someone buying the lens for live action might want one that opens as wide as possible to get the most light in. All this is irrelevant for stopmo as you generally use long…"

"Thanks so much for the great advice. I have just had a quick look on ebay as well and I definitely think I am going to go for the 650D body and hopefully the Nikon 55mm.  However I do have one question about the lens. I noticed in the video you…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Alex's discussion Stop Motion dslr
"Just had a quick look on Ebay, and there are 650D bodies going for around £250 in fairly mint condition.  Assuming 2Aus$ = £1, then that leaves you with a decent amount to put towards a lens, so I think my post is not unrealistic.…"
