Now live on the internet is RECYCLE ME, a 30 second spot for North Country Recycles. Matthew White of 4th Coast Productions hired John Vincent and me to design the puppets and shoot stop motion, with…Continue

Dragonframe in point / out point limit?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Dyami Caliri Dec 12, 2018. 4 Replies

There are times when shooting with Dragonframe 3 when we can't play back the entire scene we've shot. It seems that after a few hundred frames (not sure the exact number off the top of my head) the…Continue

Any way to capture stop motion into an Adobe program?

Started Aug 9, 2018 0 Replies

Years ago, there was a stop motion capture option in Premiere, but they took it away.Someone recently asked me if you could do stop motion with the Adobe suite, and my knee-jerk reaction was no. But…Continue

"I would. The version you were using is about six years old. The 3.5.0 release, which has the resolution to the issue you are having, was more than five years ago. So if you had just checked for updates any time in the last five years, you would not…"

"I wouldn't call version 3 "very old" but yes, that's what we're running. Thanks for the feedback."

"Also, that is a memory limit, and it is described in the User Guide."

"That would only happen if you are using a very old version of the software. If you are on 3.5+, that won't happen."

maddogmovies commented on Charles Brunson's blog post new art teacher/ middle school -I'm trying to prove my case of the benefits of teaching animation to my students
"Sounds like a big project. Animation will be challenging enough. Developing the game is a whole 2nd thing! But if you know about game design, I suppose you know that you would need a set number of repeatable animations for your character. (One…"

maddogmovies replied to DoubleDown's discussion Vintage animation style tutorials
"Start with a music track and time out the beats so your animation can match. For instance, if the music has a downbeat every 8 frames, make sure your character's foot hits every 8 (or 16) frames. Having every character and flower and tree (etc)…"

"Doesn't ring a bell, but you could always look at how people have parodied that style more recently. I think Simpsons had rubber hose gags. There's also the Mickey Mouse short "Get a Horse" from a couple years ago."

StopmoNick replied to maddogmovies's discussion Shooting two cameras at once
"I think I tried to do it with 1 computer, and I couldn't get Dragonframe to open up in 2 windows.  It might work with 2 different frame gabbers, like DF and Stop Motion Pro, but it's also likely that 2 cameras connected by USB to the…"

maddogmovies replied to Geoff Clark's discussion The 12fps / 24fps conundrum
"DCP can be 24 or 30. It CAN'T be fractional (23.976 or 29.97) Personally, I like animating characters at 10 or 12 fps. But camera moves must be at least 24 fps or they get really juttery. So I recommend continuing to shoot stop motion at 12.…"

Posted on July 22, 2014 at 5:51pm 3 Comments

Producers John Vincent and Mike Boas know animation and they know horror movies. They also know what makes for great animation WITHIN a horror movie: stop-motion... not CGI. That's why they're assembling a team of stop motion and visual effects artists to bring the creatures for their feature film…
