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

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

Simon Tytherleigh replied to bigbossross's discussion My Silicone Cast "Sweats" Oil, what's going on?
"Reading this thread through again, I am more than ever convinced that your Gel 10 was diluted with oil, perhaps it was actually Gel 25 and they thought adding some thinner would make it like Gel 10. Make sure you buy from a reputable seller."

"Very lovely. The hands in particular are beautiful, especially the child playing under the table. Wow!"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to bigbossross's discussion My Silicone Cast "Sweats" Oil, what's going on?
"It does seem a bit weird that Nick has no problems at all with the Gel 10/Ecoflex combination, and you have. Is there a possibility that oil/diluent was added to your batch before you got it? It's about the only thing I can think of. I have…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to pritam das's discussion how good is aluminium armature?does it last long?
"Aluminium soft wire works really well, but you have to be careful not to weaken it with nicks that can cause breaks. Twisting it can be done by any drill or even by hand. Alternatives? Copper wire, lead perhaps. For the 'bones' use epoxy…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Jacob Crow's discussion DSLR Not Recognised in DragonFrame
"If you have another cable it's worth trying that. I think you might also need to check the connections dialogs in DF in case something got shut down accidentally. These glitches are a real frustration, you have my sympathy!"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Jacob Crow's discussion DSLR Not Recognised in DragonFrame
"Check your connections. I had something like this recently and it was down to a USB connection that was just slightly out of square. Use electrical tape or rubber bands to hold them in place."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Nathan Moody's discussion Announcing "Sterile Flower" Short Film
"Really nicely made and quite unsettling. Lots of subtle touches, like the disembodied hands stroking the victor at the end. "

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Adam Taylor's discussion Glue for styrofoam
"Be generous with the white glue coating layers, and I would add some white glue into the plaster mix. Helps to make it stick and strengthens the plaster. I have used the polyurethane type glue on Styrofoam, the sort that foams as it sets. Very…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Eleanor Evans's discussion Reducing shine on synthetic fur
"Hmm. Maybe colouring the fur using acrylic paint and PVA brushed through. That would also stiffen it a bit to reduce boiling. Certainly powdering will reduce shine, but it's a matter of how to make it stick. Hair spray may help, or a Matt…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to bigbossross's discussion My Silicone Cast "Sweats" Oil, what's going on?
"Hi Ross. Sorry to hear about the problems. I haven't tried Gel 10 with Ecoflex, but Nick seems to have had some success with it. I wonder if he applied a lot of coats of Gel 10 to build up a thickness and that might have prevented the…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Lanna Meggy's discussion The Uncanny
"Thanks for the book recommendation, Nathan. Looking forward to it. I can endorse Walter Murch's book. The best on the subject of why you place a cut in a specific place. Will always remember that they averaged 1 1/2 cuts a day on…"
