Testing the 3D printable winders

Started this discussion. Last reply by Mohsen Minouei Apr 12. 2 Replies

Here is a quick video I made to compare two winders, one with an all-metal rack and the other which is fully 3D printed with a rack reinforced with an M6 threaded rod.Continue

3D printable winders for stop motion

Started this discussion. Last reply by James Krysa Mar 30. 1 Reply

I have been involved with beta-testing a new product, a fully 3D printable set of winders for stop motion animators. I think they are really well-designed and a proper tool for animating. At $20 for…Continue

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Shigeru Okada's discussion fixing the puppet with screws
"If you know what position the screw goes in, then you can just drill straight through the baseboard and fasten it from underneath. I use long M3 or M4 bolts with a wing nut to hold down the foot. If you can see the holes in shot after the puppet has…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Georgia Madden's discussion Salt Lamp Sub?
"Just wondering if sugar might do the job. You could experiment by adding drops of food colouring perhaps or cooking it until it caramelizes. Then you could get it into a lump while it is still molten. You might then be able to nibble away bits of it…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Dave Cooley's discussion Moving water in a scene
"Getting to be really nice looking. One comment, although you are probably no concentrating on the boat at th moment. It should rock from wide to side once the wave goes under it, and should generally have some movement I suggest floating. Once the…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Dave Cooley's discussion Moving water in a scene
"Nearly missed this thread! Really interesting to see what you are doing, as I have a lake to animate sometime. I liked the slats with the uneven front edge - perhaps moving it slightly sideways would also help to make the wave look less rigid? One…"

"Wonderful. Truly a colossus.  And yes..."It's just the pictures that got small". How true."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Scott DaRos's discussion Color Management
"At least there seem to be lots of YouTube tutorials on colour grading in Resolve! (If you have time...) Good luck!"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Scott DaRos's discussion Color Management
"Hi Scott This is something I find very difficult too. I believe the issue with the final render coming out different may be to do with not defining the color space when you are in after effects and premiere, then the computer makes its own…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Charles Jimenez's discussion How do I show my final exposures/final rendered images in my x-sheet while I am animating on Dragonframe?
"Hmm. To capture in DF you have to press the button in DF, not a camera remote timer. So ideally you would need their wireless remote controller, and when you press that button to take a frame, it will capture what it sees at that moment. I have done…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Dackus's discussion Armature Kit for (web-) serie
"Hi there. I'm the Simon James mentioned above... Brass is softer than steel and will wear more, but many people think it makes a smoother joint. Aluminium is probably one to avoid as it has a tendency to get a rough surface in contact with…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Sean Meagher's discussion Good camera with recording capability?
"A lot of people seem to be going for the Sony cameras. But Dragonframe stil reckon that a Canon body with manual Nikon lenses works best for stop motion. What you are asking is whether there is a camera that does everything well, and the answer is…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to SeldomSummer's discussion B&S Armature - Replaceable Hands
"An excellent method is to silver solder a 3mm nut onto the outside of the bigger tube, having drilled a 3 mm hole through first. Then run a tap carefully through it to make sure it is clear, and fit a grub screw."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Mark Francombe's discussion Stop Motion Stage hints?
"I don't think this matters, as you will be using 1/32 microsteps, which can be dialled in on the boxed drivers I showed you. The steps are so tiny that it is pretty much impossible to see the movement if it is one step. My DF Arcmoco usually…"

"My favourite was the tennis racquet on the head, but I loved the tree with its single leaf popping out, a real laugh out loud moment. And some great expressions."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Mark Francombe's discussion Stop Motion Stage hints?
"You have identified the reason why a jib arm can be so useful, because it can be balanced with weights on the back, but as you say not cause the whole rig to move in towards the playing area. Except that a jib arm still requires a moving dolly…"
