Hi there, I've got some questions about frame rate (Frames per second). This kind of question makes my head hurt a bit, and I hope I can get some clarity here. I'm doing a stop-motion film, I use…Continue
"The creature movement is top notch! The held poses and movements were great. Well-married with the video footage.
What's your plans for this piece? Doing festivals or anything? There are robust horror-themed short festivals out there,…"
"This input has been helpful everybody, I appreciate it. It answered my question and at the root of it is: it's a style decision.
I've decided that it's best to stick with 2's for everything. I've found that generated…"
"I feel that frame rates are a crucial component in the overall style or feel of an animation. For example, LAIKA (24fps) vs. Aardman (24fps on 2s). I prefer to stick with one frame rate, usually 24fps on 2s, because it looks more animated or…"
"Bear in mind that if you animate in two's but move your camera every frame, then on alternate frames the camera will move but the puppet won't, so will appear to move backwards, giving a very unpleasant jerkiness. So the rule is, if…"
"Thanks, Maddog. I didn't know that about DCP. In any case, I doubt I will need one but it's possible I will for festivals. We'll find out when I'm done, I guess.
Camera moves are not an issue at 2's (12fps) because my…"
"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.…"
"I'd like to get a better grasp on your question: when you say, "Is 3D Printing joints the best method for stop motion?" That sounds like you wonder if your armature should be 3d Printed?
If That's correct, then I guess it…"
"I haven't used magnets to hold down a wire armature, but I do use a wire armature with tie-downs. Here's what I think would be things to thing about: Wire armatures work well for light characters, but if your character is heavy, (like his…"
Securing can be done in a few ways. Tie-downs are useful for standing shots with walking/posing/ and the feet are visible. But for waist-up medium shots, I use some character stands that I had to make from scratch. They are…"
"I'd recommend J-B Weld to do the attachment. It is a 2-part epoxy mix that, once hardened, is very strong. It works very well on brass tubing and with aluminum braided wire.
If you'd like the tail removable for whatever…"
It's a good question and I think I can help because I tried a few dead ends before finding a good way for me to work. It depends on what your characters are. Reading your script, it seems like just normal human…"
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately.I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on this email( firstname.lastname@example.org ) for the full details, Have a nice day
Thanks God bless. Mrs Abiola.
