"I use a USB extension cord when connecting my Canon DSLR to Dragonframe on the Mac, and everything works just the same as with only the short cable.  I think the extension is 1.2 metres long, and it is a large size USB connector at both ends -…"

Longer cord connecting camera to computer for live capture

I have a Nikon d5100 which I connect to my I Mac to use live capture in dragon frame. The cord that comes with my camera is pretty short. I just want about a yard more length I hate having to move my computer to awkward angles for certain shots. I tried buying a usb extension cord to give me a few more feet but only the camera registers when I use the extension. The computer does not recognize the camera when I use that. Anyone know how to fix that or know where i can purchase a longer…See More

"I would imagine you would need to use some good quality thick card rather than paper.  Maybe be prepared for them to break and have some extras at the ready.  Would you need armatures on every joint? You might be able to use tacky wax on…"

"I animated some playing cards with little arms and legs once, so they were mostly flat but moved around in a 3 dimensional space.  I hot glued 1.5mm (1/16th") armature wire onto the backs.  For some of them that turned around so you…"

Stand Up style Cut out armatures

Hello everyone,I wanted to start experimenting with stand up style cut out animation. An example would be the "I Have Your Heart" music video by Kim Boekinder, Molly Crabapple, and Jim Batt.I have found very little info on making armatures for this style of puppet. I did find…See More

"Thank you very much. I didn't even think about ply wood splintering. I'm going to try particle board and MDF. On an unrelated note I found your tutorial on making latex build up puppets very informative!"

"Foam board is maybe ok for very light puppets that can be held in place with a pin through the foor, but is too soft for screw type tiedowns. it will compress as you tighten the wingnut underneath, and as you animate the puppet it is likely to…"

Set floor material

I have been doing a lot of research on different tie down methods but I am still confused about what kind of material is best for the floor of the set for a simple drill hole in floor and rod and bolt tie down puppet support. I have seen particleboard, plywood, and foam board for set floor material. Are all of these good options or are they better for certain situations and puppet weight?See More
