"I'm trying to think of alternatives, but all I know is After Effects should do the trick somehow. If you're willing, send me the unblurred videos and I'll make some tests."

"HI, thank you for your reply. I can definitely make the second and third darker and blurrier. The "waver test" was simply done to confirm the tool chain. Fusion 8 has some pretty fancy optical tracking, motion blur and motion smooth…"

advice for motion blur in stop motion

HI all,All of us struggle, at least i think we do, with motion blur in our stop motion animation. There are several techniques involved, starting with moving the puppet while capturing the frame, processing the frames in POST in some compositing or graphic package, or some other technique i never heard about yet. Since my project will involve fast movements, i am forced to take into consideration the motion blur. Some of the moves, the ones controlled by MOCO, will be blurred in camera but…See More

"HI, the wobbling is still from the track since the table is very uneven and the machine is not in it's final position. As for the safety switch, it cuts only commands to the drivers to stop the motion. It will keep powering the drivers because…"

"Really good to see it, Julian! Seems to work pretty well and smoothly, with just a little wobble at the end of moves. Thanks also for the tips. What sort of safety switch do you have? I have a switch that turns off the power to the drivers, so would…"

"Finally it is finished. Well at least the firmware works and the machine also. Needs a good paint job and the interface software written. Firmware accepts serial commands but a nicer UI is required. It will be most probably C or Freepascal augmented…"
