Hey guys, I'm somewhat new to stop motion work, and I want an upgrade in lighting. I was wondering if anybody has any suggestions for lighting with soft boxes. I also make other videos that are not…Continue

"Are you using Dragonframe?  If so, you can take a test shot (in the Cinematography window) and see how the actual frame will look onscreen.  If not, take test shots with the camera, not connected to the computer, at different exposure…"

"Yes I was with at least one second exposure but I had some really dim junky lights lol. I didn't think about that factor."

"Ah, maybe your lights are much brighter than you used to have? In that case what you probably need to do is reduce the exposure time enough to balance out, because the brightness of the light is another factor to be balanced with the…"

"I just got some led lights to use for this, and I never had the white screen issue until I used these new lights. I'm using a Nikon d5500 and the lense that came with it. "

"   I haven't seen a lot of tips on avoiding flicker, which is what you were trying to fix initially, so here's how I fixed it.  You didn't say what camera you use, so that could help us diagnose the issue.   …"

"You're going to have to spend some time reading through parts of the manual to familiarize yourself with how to control certain things. One of thse is ISO, which is a brightness setting. If you want to use a long exposure you need to set the…"

"Simply put, try messing around with the setting and see if you can get an image that works at all.  Then maybe you can try to get back to the long exposure you want from there adding one piece at a time."

"I wanted the longer exposure to avoid flickering. I don't know how to change iso... What sensor do you mean? I'm still really new to all of this, I'm sorry I don't understand it all."

"Have you tried going the opposite way with a short exposure or different iso?  Have you cleaned your sensor?  "

Pictures too bright

I've been reading and reading about my problem and not finding a solution... Can someone please explain this to me? I'm sorry for the bad picture... How should my settings be? I usually shoot with 2 second exposer, but now when I turn it to even 1 second it makes my shot completely white like the first picture.. I don't understand how I should be setting the white balance either. Hope someone can help...…See More

"Just to throw something else into a discussion about soft light. DOPs often use cookies (that's cucoloris in full) and cello cucoloris to soften light. These are just plywood with odd shapes cut out, or for the cello cucoloris wire frame with…"

"Try bouncing your lights instead of pointing them directly at your sets for softer lighting. In the past I've used big pieces of white foam and two 200w fresnel lights for generic soft lighting by bouncing the lights off the ceiling at…"

"Hi, I don't use soft-boxes but I do have a couple of GU10 spots (Showtec mini spots), I replaced the bulbs with LEDs, I've not had any problem with flickering, and they don't get hot. They can take gel filters too. I also use a large…"
