How to know when a scaled layer will lose true resolution

Started this discussion. Last reply by Geoff Clark Nov 5, 2018. 4 Replies

Hi there!  I need help with a math problem, essentially: How much can I scale my layers or comps (expressed in percentage) in After Effects before I've passed the threshold where pixel interpolation…Continue

The 12fps / 24fps conundrum

Started this discussion. Last reply by Geoff Clark Jun 30, 2018. 9 Replies

Hi there,  I've got some questions about frame rate (Frames per second). This kind of question makes my head hurt a bit, and I hope I can get some clarity here.  I'm doing a stop-motion film, I use…Continue

Geoff Clark replied to Mozen's discussion I just published a podcast with Dale Hayword (See Creature) who directed Bone Mother for the National Film Board of Canada
"Dale gave me great feedback and I used it to improve my film. And just the other day he recommended that I submit to Montreal Stop Motion festival, which I did.  A class act!"

Geoff Clark replied to Heather Vasquez's discussion Old Samsung SC L901
"The only way to find out is to try it. I used a sony camcorder to teach kids how to do it. It was just the input device, and I captured frames with MonkeyJam. BUT, I found out that some company (Microsoft?) Killed whatever windows tech that made…"

Geoff Clark replied to Jack Rack's discussion Need advice for my first stop motion film
"I approached my facial animation in a similar way. The heads of my characters are rigid air-dry clay, and the brows / eyelids are plasticine. This clay won't dry over time, and sticks just fine to the rigid face. If you make your eyebrows and…"

Geoff Clark replied to Mozen's discussion I just published a podcast with Dale Hayword (See Creature) who directed Bone Mother for the National Film Board of Canada
"It was a great episode! I've followed Dale for the duration of the development of the film and I love hearing about the behind-the-scenes notes about the process. Bone Mother is a great piece, with real sense of loss and cruelty. Being so…"

Geoff Clark replied to Count Croc's discussion Costuming
"Hi, Count Croc. I had to do the same for my piece, and here's what I ended up doing.    I built one of the first outfits for my characters, but it was extremely difficult. My hands were hurting and the process took forever. I have a…"

Geoff Clark replied to Jerry's discussion Best practice puppet?
"Jerry,    pop-thru's are just a recording of only the key poses, without every frame or final lighting or scene dressing. A fast dry-run of the motion exposes what hidden problems may occur. They can take just five…"

Geoff Clark replied to Jerry's discussion Best practice puppet?
"Hey Jerry,   I think you can get some good movement with a simple wire armature. The wire armatures will last for plenty of time with the risk of breakage increasing as it gets more 'mileage'. The breaking, however, can really kill…"

Geoff Clark replied to Count Croc's discussion wire armature making
"Nick's advice is spot-on, and I like in the video where he uses 5 strands for the arms, that will allow one or more wires to snap and still allow for movement. But you know the clock is ticking on that joint! I think you should accept that wire…"

Geoff Clark replied to Simon Tytherleigh's discussion Wrought iron gates
"Hi Simon,  Really top-notch! They look regal and fancy, like walling off an institution or a manor home. Is that what you were looking to achieve? Do they open with a hinge?   You didn't ask for any improvements, so if you don't…"

Geoff Clark replied to Evan DeRushie's discussion Online Premiere - The Fox and the Chickadee
"This is a super amazing movie, full of great visuals. I follow along with the work that's been assisted by the NFB in Canada, and I've asked other filmmakers about how they were able to help. Can you explain what that relationship is like?…"

Geoff Clark replied to grecodan's discussion acting exercise
"Hey Grecodan,  Sorry for the late reply.  I have done about 10 minutes of stop-motion acting in my film, almost done, so I have learned a few things about animating dialog. I got better as I go. My perspective is just my feelings and…"

Geoff Clark replied to grecodan's discussion acting exercise
"I like both of these, and in general the timing is great. I have some thoughts but I can't write a lot tonight due to time, but tomorrow I could.  In the meantime, could you tell me (us) what your process is for timing out your …"

"There are great options available for small portable LEDs. I have modified some that work well for simulating firelight. I took a flameless candle, powered by AA batteries, and smashed it to remove the wax, and made what I call a…"

Geoff Clark replied to A film by Adam Ciolfi's discussion FILTH - Official Trailer
"Adam, This looks really impressive!  I like that you're working on 1's (24fps). It looks gritty and violent, reminds me of Sin City. The way you have a working jaw underneath skin, it really looks realistic. Was it molded skin…"
