VR Stop Motion?

Hey guys,So this year I'm trying something new and experimental. Virtual Reality 360 Stop Motion Animation.I'm pretty new to VR and 360 cameras and I just recently got my hands on a Theta S from Ricoh. There aren't many people doing VR stop motion so it's left me having to figure things out on my own. I was able to get the Theta S connected to my laptop via USB and the camera is actually recognised in DragonFrame! It's all working great but I'm now faced with a small issue. When the camera is…See More

"I also use DragonFrame with a Canon 5D Mark II. My best guess is that the version you're using is too old to support this model of camera. You'll just have to upgrade to a more recent version of DragonFrame. "

LOOKING FOR ANIMATORS TO CONTRIBUTE TO MY FILM!

 As some of you may know I've been working on a short documentary film called "Becoming an Animator" as kind of a look at how many animators have made it in the industry. I've already contacted a few people to be in the film and have interviewed them over Skype while recording them so they can be in the film. But the project has a deadline so I need to get things moving. I don't have time to set up dates and interview every single person who'll be in the film. I am now welcoming any animators…See More

Stop Motion: tips for starting out

Posted on April 19, 2014 at 8:12pm 1 Comment

Welcome, I hope this will help you when starting out with stop motion.

This will be just a few things to keep in mind when getting set up.

First of all, you need a camera, a digital handheld camera, or, what I have more experience with, a webcam. Next, you need a laptop/Pc. You need to connect your webcam/camera into the laptop then, you need...Say, for example if you're working with a webcam, you want to get the webcam driver/software. Okay, now you want to get some stop…
