Hello Everyone!I'm doing a stop motion project in my university and I encountered a flicker problem during one of my shots. I am using Canon 7D + Dragonframe 3.7.1 + 1 Arri 300W + 3 Dedolights.I have…Continue
"Yeah, I remembered that after my post. Wear Black shirts, and marking the floor with tape where you stand to click the frame grab can help.
