Wes Wood of "Animation toolkit" has a kickstarter well under way for his film "Pooch proposal", I haven't seen him post anything on here (I might have missed it) so I thought I'd put up a link for…Continue
"I've had a few Amazon shipments that were posted from Germany, so EU postage can't be that high!
Same with me Simon, not rural but Australia's copper wire "broadband" in general is pretty poor. For 720p of…"
"My problem is not the online availability, it is that I live in a rural area with rubbish broadband. It is often only possible to watch YouTube videos about 5 seconds at a time. I might try to watch the film one night when I can't sleep. 2am we…"
"I hope this is another sign that DVDs are dead. It cost me $2 to rent. If I wanted to watch it again in my lifetime, I could rent it again many times before spending more than it would cost to own. I have a small collection of stop-motion films on…"
"I looked on their site and found where I could order the DVD at a very reasonable 10 Euro - I would pay up to 20 or 25 E. But shipping to Rest of the World is 45 Euro, which unfortunately is a deal breaker. So I may have to look at the pay per view…"
"I'd say the 60D is a good option for stopmotion, I used one for one of my projects and thought it was great, don't know how it holds up for stills photography though. I know a couple of people with the 650 and that also seems…"
"I had a very similar reaction to the replacement faces in Boxtrolls, there were times where it even took me completely out of the action because I was thinking "how did they let THAT slip by?" But I have a theory that they did it…"
"I agree. There were some shots where it was very obvious what was going on with the faces. Compared with the smoothness of the body animation, it was a bit jarring. Although I do think it was partially the design of the characters. Lord…"
"To be honest I felt like the replacement faces were more noticeable in The Boxtrolls than they were in Paranorman. Maybe that's just me? I was always impressed by how much effort they and other studios put into replacement faces, but despite…"
"I thought the scene was done the way Nick outlined, with puppets composited into layers. The fact that there are some CG characters is...I guess...okay. But then I'm another Fantastic Mr. Fox fan, so I'm biased anyway toward old-school…"
"I was planning a crowd scene with all puppets, but re-dressing the same ones and compositing them in layers. That way I cold animate a manageable half-dozen or so at a time, and make 8 puppets look like 40. But there were still limits to…"
Puppet Putty is formulated by clay animator Don Carlson. Properties include colors that do not bleed on your hands, a matte finish, cleans up with water, is very light weight, firm, non-greasy and has a silky texture.
Hey all! About a year ago I started posting pictures up here of a new stop motion short I had started working on. Although it has taken me way longer that I had anticipated I am almost complete with the compositing and finishing touches. I recently…Continue
I'm rigging a small cape and looking for info from people who have done this before. The cape is about 5" long and is torn and ratty. So I can't hide wires in hemmed seams like I have in the past.I'm considering weaving some floral wire and then…Continue
So I've just purchased the latest Dragonframe version and I am looking to upgrade my Canon EOS 1100D to a Nikon D5300. I have checked to see if this camera is compatible which it is. Is anyone currently using this camera with Dragonframe? If so can…Continue
