Hey guys, someone posted some Astro-liner films (made for Amusement Park rides-projected inside the craft that moved hydraulically in sync with the films)-from the 1980's on youtube-this one has…Continue
"What I think was happening, was there was a tracking mis-sync each frame, and the flying erase head or some other element in the VCR's play heads stabilized it. So rather than the picture jumping up and down every frame, it stayed stationary…"
"Just seeing this thread for the first time. Wow, I guess a lot of animators were using editing decks like framegrabbers! My first one was a Sony SLV-696 HF with a flying erase head. It was pretty rock-solid, picturewise, but that did not last. It…"
"The 3:25 was when the film started (whoever posted this, hooked a couple of Astro-Liner films together)..I was not the animator, just the monster maker. Another guy made the miniature Jules Verne looking sub the monster is chasing...John Davis did…"
"It was good seeing the sea monster in action, after seeing the odd still photo of it over the years! I don't understand Spanish but that didn't worry me. It did look like pretty low res though, couldn't see the fishy as…"
"Someone posted the Spanish language versions....but at least you can see it...
These were shot on 16mm and made into Super 8 carts that looped...for each rides duration-appx. 3-4 minutes. Not sure what this print is-could be from a Super 8. These…"
"I didn't work on it, considered it but couldn't afford the time. I'm not at all surprised not to see my home town on the list, or anywhere I could drive to without an amphibious vehicle and 3 months to spare. ( and a hella lotta…"
"Thousands of miles and a border between the closest one and myself unfortunately. I really want to see it on a huge screen though. I think Ron said it might be available on DVD or download at some point but I'm not sure when. Can't wait. I…"
"Atlanta is a ways off from me, but I'm SERIOUSLY thinking of making the drive, in my junk car. Hey, it's the BOYS! Can't miss Ron's work in the THEATRE! And let's see, Mark Sullivan, Peter Montgomery, and Paul, and Nick too?…"
Thanks, hair application is can be hard if you dont have the exact visual process in your head. Thats why it's great to have input from fallow fabricators. I have a general idea of how its done, but knowing exactly how it's done, always helps!
I am going to start an animation project of sorts and am looking for input. I have a hobby collecting old nitrate motion picture film and will start to transfer them digitally early next year. Most will be heading to YouTube for free viewing before…Continue
When I export my movies from Dragonframe, the videos show to much and, let's say, a close up becomes a wide shot when I export it and it shows the stuff from behind the set, the desk, and lights. I don't know how to fix it to go in more or if I am…Continue
Hi guys, I was just wondering if you had any thoughts about making sandwich plates out of brass, instead of mild steel? I understand that whatever material you use for the plates should be softer than the ball itself.I imagine tool steel is used in…Continue
Hallo friends,i will make a stopmotion-workshop at my University. I usually work with dragon frame and ask them if there are temporary licenses for the students. But there is just the option to buy licenses a litte cheaper. The students have to do a…Continue
