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!
Woo Hoo! I just put in my order for Vol 2 of Jim Danforth's autobiography, published by Archive Editions. It is published on a CD rather than as a printed book, which I would have preferred, but it does manage to fit a huge amount of material in…Continue
I've got a camera that doesn't allow any kind of remote shutter release, mechanical or electronic, and I'd like to rig one up for it. My idea is to use some kind of linear actuator Mythbusters style. I've seen them use these things to push all kinds…Continue
I recently purchased a Canon Rebel T5 (not T5i) and I need to buy a Nikon lens and lens adapter for it. I thought that would be easy but I've been frustrated for days trying to figure out what to buy. All I want is a basic standard lens. (I was…Continue
So I have Dragonframe 3.6 and am using a Canon T5 camera with the standard lens that it came with. I am using desk lamps for my lighting and black poster boards for my floor and wall. I have two Lego Bionicle characters trying to talk to each other-…Continue
HiI recently bought a beautiful looking ball and socket H1 Pro armature from Malvern Armatures. I also bought a pair of hands with it, and the fingers are made up with twisted copper wire. I've never used copper wire for fingers, only aluminium, but…Continue
Hi I shot cut out animation under a sheet of glass and as a result of the glass I have a lot of "dust" ( not sure what to call it) noise on my shots . Does any one know of an effective way to clean this ?I use after effects CS6 so any method…Continue
