EVA foam helmets

Started this discussion. Last reply by Simon Tytherleigh Nov 21, 2017. 3 Replies

I thought I would add a couple of pics on here to show some helmets I have made from 2mm EVA foam. They are glued together with contact adhesive, then coated with thinned PVA to fill the texture and…Continue

Sudden camera shutdown

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

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

"I spent a long time trying to understand how different programs worked, and was also constantly going to video tutorials, so you are not alone. Persevere, because it does all suddenly become easier. One of the things it took me a while to get to…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to David Braga's discussion injecting silicone
"Hi David. I have injected silicone into moulds, although mostly I do the overfill method. The injection method requires the armature to be fixed in place and needs air escape holes. I used large 50ml syringes with wide nozzles (from Mole Valley…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Emily Myers's discussion Clip Foam Suggestions?
"That definitely looks like latex foam. I haven't seen it in bigger sizes than make-up sponges in the UK, but then I haven't really looked. It is certainly nice to handle, and perfect for sticking latex to."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Kaj's discussion Brickfilming
"Stop motion Pro appears to be available for $185, which would be at the top end of your budget, but gives you a proper program designed for stopmo."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Melissa Neuburger's discussion Best way to have a puppet walk
"If you have access to a program like Photoshop or After Effects, then using a rig might be the way to go. This is basically a weighted base supporting an arm that can be articulated. The end of the arm should have a piece of square brass tubing on…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Cadmus Rimbeaux's discussion Stop Motion as a legitimate special effect
"Sounds to me like an excellent opportunity for some stopmo effects, especially as you mention a dreamworld, where anything goes. You can also use effects and lighting to make the stopmo stuff look as real as possible, so sinister and not lame... Go…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Cadmus Rimbeaux's discussion Stop Motion as a legitimate special effect
"It's an interesting topic. I don't think you are being quite fair in mentioning films like Chicken Run and Kubo. None of those films are trying to be realistic. Paranorman even made all the puppet faces asymmetrical... I used to do some…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to bigbossross's discussion Getting consistent results Matting Silicone
"Good stuff! Looking forward to seeing the final results! As a matter of interest, naptha seems to evaporate very fast, and 40 seconds seems about right. You could basically leave the silicone until it starts to set off, but that might be risking not…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to bigbossross's discussion Getting consistent results Matting Silicone
"Definitely agree with Greyguy's comment. The only reason for the thin coat is to get the powder to stick and create a rough surface (by which I mean micro indentations that reflect light inconsistently and therefore dissipate…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Alex's discussion Stop motion pro help
"I'm not familiar with Stopmotion Pro, so can't help. Maybe someone else has the answer. My suspicion is that once you have captured and saved the frames, they are set in that orientation, so would need another program to readjust them.…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Frej Bengtsson & Stellan Rutstam's discussion Better ways to paint Platsil Gel 10 ?
"Doug, just to say I am really liking the d-limonene. Seems to work very well, and now my workroom smells pleasantly of oranges! Thanks."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to bigbossross's discussion Getting consistent results Matting Silicone
"Hmm. Initial thoughts are that the powder is getting mixed in with the silicone and therefore not washing off. I think you need to let the naptha evaporate before adding the powder. In other words you are rushing it a bit. Apply the thin clear coat.…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Alex's discussion Stop motion pro help
"In After Effects you adjust the 'x' Scale to -100%. In an editor like Premiere you need a horizontal flip, or might be able to do the same scale adjustment."
