Sudden camera shutdown

Started this discussion. Last reply by Simon Tytherleigh May 4. 7 Replies

Anyone got any suggestions on this issue?My Canon T3i (600d) occasionally shuts down for no apparent reason during animating. It's not doing the going to sleep action, which is accompanied by a…Continue

Started Dec 30, 2016 0 Replies

Has anyone experience of using silicone on hair and costumes, like they did for KUBO? Any tips? Anyone from LAIKA able to share your technique?I tried brushing some coloured Platsil gel 10 onto some…Continue

First test for DIY moco rig

Started this discussion. Last reply by Simon Tytherleigh Sep 30, 2016. 16 Replies

At long last I have finally got my moco rig working, thanks to a busy weekend with Roos Mattaar. It's a 6 axis rig with a crane arm and a 1.5m track. Connecting everything up has been quite a…Continue

DSLR picture settings for stopmo

Started this discussion. Last reply by Simon Tytherleigh Jul 5, 2016. 4 Replies

What picture settings do you use for stopmo? By this I mean the adjustments that can be made in the camera's menu, for Sharpness, Contrast, Saturation and Colour. Filmmakers all seem to have their…Continue

60fps-output-test

"I don't really get this. If the output, YouTube video etc, is at 25 or 30 fps, then surely the computer will discard half the frames? So if you animate at 24, then drop it into a comp with a frame rate of 60, the computer adds a bunch of…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Darren Nemeth's discussion Extension tubes or ? are best for macro shots with a DSLR
"I've just been shooting a scene using a 28mm manual lens attached to my T3i, and was able to focus at about 300mm from the subject. The Nikon 55mm AI lens gets in even closer. Might be worth considering if you need to do a lot of close work."
Sunday
Simon Tytherleigh replied to DimensionalAnimator's discussion About camera life
"Have a look at this database, which should give you an idea. It looks like one can expect about 50,000 shutter actuations from an entry-level camera, and probably 4 or 5 times that for a pro model. A way to avoid taking lots of extra shots is: when…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to bigbossross's discussion Matting Glossy Silicone Paint-job with Powdered Sugar
"My experience using baby powder is that it does not work as well as the icing sugar, perhaps this is because it does not dissolve like sugar. I found that it did not cover the glossiness as well either, so put it down to the fact of it being…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to vanilla gorilla's discussion Stopmotion Pricing
"Just to add a couple more thoughts. If you bid too low, and can't make reasonable money on the contract, you are stuck, because you can only negotiate downwards. Most clients do not want the cheapest job, they want a good job, so bid at a level…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to vanilla gorilla's discussion Stopmotion Pricing
"Great work, Moonshine! Really terrifying...is that what kids watch these days?! An approach to working out how to charge is called cost-plus. This is where you work out what it costs you to make the product, then add your time plus a bit to go back…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to bigbossross's discussion Matting Glossy Silicone Paint-job with Powdered Sugar
"Just watched the video. Wow, they mix up a lot of silicone, but I guess that's because they are selling the stuff! And it's full-size. Washes definitely work well. In my opinion one needs to make features quite strong at small scale,…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to bigbossross's discussion Matting Glossy Silicone Paint-job with Powdered Sugar
"I have just painted a couple of heads and dusted them with icing sugar. It has worked well. I left them overnight, then washed the excess off. The surface still felt a little tacky, but this could just have been the silicone feel. I dusted a little…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Steve Copeland's discussion My new lens to stop flicker - a work in progress
"It's a bit off topic, but I was at the BBC when the first demonstration of HD took place in the UK, at Television Centre. It completely terrified everyone working in the art depts, as all the tromp l'oeil trickery and dodgy edges we had…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Steve Copeland's discussion My new lens to stop flicker - a work in progress
"I'm sure it will be just fine. Lenses are very subjective anyway. The real point about his video is to let people know that the old manual lenses are really good quality, metal bodied, and available for not too much money. I have some nice…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Lauren Hoffmann's discussion Fabrication- College decision
"It also depends on your personality. If you are highly motivated and good at teaching yourself from books, you might be better off doing that intensively. Some of the Animation courses don't go into stop motion much, probably because most…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Joe's discussion Making an animatable rope
"I've just tried twisting 3 strands of 0.7mm aluminium wire together, and they make a very passable rope, nice and malleable, about 2mm total diameter. The challenge then would be painting the metal, and I would go with some primer first before…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Simon Tytherleigh's discussion Sudden camera shutdown
"Thanks, everyone for the suggestions. I can report that the problem is sorted! It was happening repeatedly over a period of time, which is why I was wondering if it might be a camera issue. Or something with the AC adapter. But in the end it looks…"

Daniel Wernëck replied to Simon Tytherleigh's discussion Sudden camera shutdown
"Just curious, but is the camera running on battery on does it have an AC adapter?"
