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

"Not light reflected off the screen, but spill coming directly from the lights. Black wrap is very convenient as it can be wrapped round the light, and used many times. A flag is also good.  To avoid light reflected from the screen from adding a…"

"Don't forget that it is important not to let light spill onto the set, so some black wrap is very handy to prevent this."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to KK Akuoku's discussion Best method for color temperature matching: gels or in camera settings
"I think the key to this is shooting a white card, so the camera can adjust if it has those controls. If not, then you have 2 comparable elements to adjust in post."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Angus Lamont's discussion Starting out - short film or stick to animation tests
"What?!! Wasted good years, and you are only 21!? If you are serious, then play the long game, take a look at what you intend to be doing in 5 or 10 years from now and work towards it. Improve the things you are poor at, hone the stuff you do…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Andrew AJ's discussion Motion control slider or rig.
"I can't help you with recommendations on rigs, but as someone who is also not very techie I can tell you a bit about working out how it goes together. I have made my own moco rig and am just making a slider with pan/tilt/focus axes. The way the…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Gavin A's discussion Best Editing Software
"You need different programs for different purposes. So After Effects is great for fiddling around, rigs, time stretching and all sorts, then Premiere is best at straight editing of clips. I paint n eyelids in Photoshop. The route I went was to buy a…"

"Just thinking about what James said above.... You are keen to build up a showreel, I would like to have someone help on my project. Is there anything we might be able to do that would help both of us? Message me if you want to discuss it. I am based…"

"Here's a suggestion: 'Ideas for the Animated Short' is a great book, which has lots of stimulating stuff on getting a concept realised."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Bram Vrancken's discussion The second Dogger & Catter project!
"For the floor, just get hold of some perforated steel sheet with the right size holes in it. You can get 3mm and 5mm holes, and the sheet can come in quite big sizes if you need it.  Puppets look lovely!"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to pritam das's discussion Fps related question
"The important thing to consider is that whatever fps you choose to shoot in, only the final output fps from your edit actually matters. The number of frames you use for an action is up to you, so for a slow action you might choose to duplicate the…"

"Nice set! Impressively neat work. Only thought on lighting would be perhaps to have something like a streetlight so your puppet can be illuminated a little more than the background. "

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Jet Zhang's discussion Need some suggestions on Stop motion animation with 3D printing for kids STEAM courses design.
"I think that 3d printers would be most useful for creating props at the right scale. I am wanting to make an iron bedspread and a wrought iron gate, both of which would be fairly straightforward with a printer. So maybe providing the software that…"

"Mine's cost about £1000, maybe a bit more for the stuff I have thrown out during the process, and it's prettier (in my eyes!). Especially the old ladder it tracks along!"
