So I just finished the Chiodo Bros 4 part DVD series on stop motion from the Stan Winston School (highly recommended). I was intrigued to hear about this L200 foam they use for building up puppets.…Continue

Hi! So I have a project where I want to combine live action video with animation. My source video footage is 30fps (29.97 NTSC). I want to insert my own animation (24fps) into the clip. Should I…Continue

Saw this on YouTube and it looks really professional. The only thing I would improve upon is the counterweight pulley and rope system. It looks very delicate in the video. Check it out . . .…Continue

"Picked up the 55mm at KEH website for a reasonable price and actually prefer it. Sold the 50mm. Saving up for 24mm or 28mm next. My trial version of Dragon Frame has ended so couldn't do an animation test but the photos I took look better than…"

"No go on the Harbor Freight foam. Seems to be treated and after layering too heavy for puppet. Not sure if I got the right sort of thing. Looking at alternatives. . . stay tuned. "

"If you want to try it on the less expensive side of things, get some of those anti-fatigue EVA floor mats that cosplayers use. They're about 3/8 to 1/2 of an inch thick and usually have a texture on one side, but since you're going to bury…"

L200 foam

So I just finished the Chiodo Bros 4 part DVD series on stop motion from the Stan Winston School (highly recommended). I was intrigued to hear about this L200 foam they use for building up puppets. They use it for the non-action areas of the puppet where the animator would need to grab onto while moving other limbs etc. It's dense and more firm than the areas where upholstery foam is used.I thought it was a pretty clever idea. Unfortunately the only source I found (Atlas Foam)only sells it in…See More

Daniel Wernëck replied to Eric Scott's discussion FPS Conversion NTSC
"Oh and just reinforcing what Iulian and Nick said: converting is always dangerous. I do believe if you convert DOWN from 30 to 24 you will be more likely to have a nice-looking video in the end. The opposite is usually problematic. And yes, the…"

Daniel Wernëck replied to Eric Scott's discussion FPS Conversion NTSC
"In my experience, broken numbers for frame rates (i.e. 29.97 instead of 30, 23.97 instead of 24) are prone to disaster. Had lots of trouble because of them when I worked with video editing. I avoid them like the plague. I see no reason why you…"

Iulian Demetrescu replied to Eric Scott's discussion FPS Conversion NTSC
"HI, Stick to the 30 FPS. Converting to PAL is a nightmare and does not work without loosing or making all go south. The professional converters have trouble doing it even now. If you can reshot the scenes the do them in PAL directly and then you can…"

StopmoNick replied to Eric Scott's discussion FPS Conversion NTSC
"If you are mixing with live action, I think the very best plan would be to animate at the same rate - a full 30 fps on ones - so the two blend together as well as possible.  (Not the quickest or easiest, mind you.) Otherwise, shooting on twos…"

StopmoNick replied to Eric Scott's discussion Airbrush Compressor Recommendation
"SilentAir do make models with smaller tanks, like 1.5 gallons (6 litres), but the price doesn't seem to get any smaller.  And that  6 litre one, with the tank to one side of the compressor, takes up more floor space than the 4…"

Eric Scott replied to Eric Scott's discussion Airbrush Compressor Recommendation
"I've been doing some research on the two options you mentioned. The Sil-Air above is probably the best bet but still a bit large for my apartment (I only have 400 square feet) and it's quite a bit above my budget. Perhaps a 1 or 2 gallon…"

Eric Scott replied to Eric Scott's discussion FPS Conversion NTSC
"Thanks for the advice. I was leaning in that direction anyway. It's only a few more frames to animate if shooting on two's. "
