Steve Copeland replied to Steve Copeland's discussion My stop motion jam questions
"My finished Stop Motion Jam entry with additional footage. I did some more editing and added music form the Youtube library to my finished film. Changing the length on some of the frames and adding a tittle card pushed the length to 30 seconds. So…"

"My Humble Opinion - Move to a new company AND membership drive. A small donation could provide help and expertise to migrate and later fund drives to pay for hosting costs. I know Garage Kits USA and Blender Artists both use vBulletin ($250) for…"

"Well that bites. It would be a terrible tragedy to lose the site and not just the info (which can be archived) but the support form other members. Admittedly I only stop in on occasion and only in spurts at a time (usually when a new movie comes out…"

Steve Copeland replied to Dawn Brown's discussion The Little Prince - beautiful stop motion!
"I also watched it this weekend (Twice to be exact). Loved the stop motion especially the fox. The stylized stop motion made that part of the story feel even more like a story within a story. Great job."

"I think it was StopMo Nick that suggested to me in another post to shoot more than you need then crop the image to 16:9. So that is exactly what I did. I set up a Photoshop action to crop every image at the exact same place and let it run on the…"

Steve Copeland replied to Larry S. Evans II's discussion Question about aperture flicker on Canon DSLR
"Never considered it damaging the camera. I was more worried about unscrewing it too much and the lens falling off. I think the iris does remain locked after power down. When I was finished for the day I would turn off the power strip and could…"

Steve Copeland replied to Larry S. Evans II's discussion Question about aperture flicker on Canon DSLR
"That is a really great answer Nick and important topic to us that already have Canons for pictures of the family and such and want to use them for animation. I used my 18-55 kit lens with my T1i (500D) and had flicker on my first animation. So I…"
