Need help (upgrading light setup)

Started by animator15648 in ANIMATION TOOLS & EQUIPMENT. Last reply by animator15648 2 hours ago. 4 Replies

Hey guys,I want to upgrade my lights but confused about whether to buy LED lights or photography lights with a softbox. From what I can tell, the softbox lights use fluorescent lights which I think are bad for stop motion animation as they flicker? Can someone please guide me on which one to buy. Here are some links on the 2 options of light kits I confused about.https://www.amazon.com/Julius-Studio-Lighting-Photography-JSAG344V2/dp/B075NV9N99/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=light+kit+studio&qid=1594454278&sr=8-6vshttps://www.amazon.com/LimoStudio-Dimmable-Temperature-Continuous-AGG1684V3/dp/B016NDM99M/ref=sr_1_29?dchild=1&keywords=light+kit+studio+led&qid=1594454327&sr=8-29Thank you!Note: those links are not the ones I am specifically buying but they are just for reference.Continue

Moving water in a scene

Started by Dave Cooley in STOPMO NEWBIES. Last reply by Simon Tytherleigh 12 hours ago. 23 Replies

Trying to find a simple way to animate the surface of a lake that will allow me to focus on animating two characters rowing a boat across it. I am not overly concerned with realism and will accept something a bit cartoony.The attached clip shows a brief test I did this afternoon using plastic wrap over a blue painted table top. With a bit of practice this might do the trick, but was wondering if there were any better ideas out there.Continue

fixing the puppet with screws

Started by Shigeru Okada in ANIMATOR TALK. Last reply by Simon Tytherleigh 13 hours ago. 7 Replies

Hello,I'm a stop motion animator based in Japan.I would like to know how to make a screw hole accurately according to the position where I want the puppet to stand.Now I use a paper cut in the shape of a foot. I put it under the puppet's foot. After removing the puppet, I drill a hole at the position of the hole of paper. There is very little information in Japan because the method of fixing the puppet with screws is not used very often. I would like to know what method is used in other countries.Continue

Rigging bits in Australia - not overseas?

Started by Allan Begolo-Wyatt in STOPMO NEWBIES. Last reply by Allan Begolo-Wyatt on Sunday. 2 Replies

Hey chaps.My name is Allan - I've worked on and off in the video industry for years but just decided with the latest Victorian lockdown to follow my dreams and start animating some stop motion bits and pieces. It's all extremely rough stuff that I've done using clay I've bought from Spotlight just before everything went to pieces. Anyway - I digress - what I'm looking for is a place to find rigging supplies in Melbourne. It's become abundantly clear that I can't do much with clay alone - and I also have a commercial project that will require animating some action figures - both of which seem borderline impossible to do without some way of holding the figures steady.So the question I'm here to ask is - where can I get supplies in Australia for this sort of stuff? Coronavirus has sorta put a block in getting anything from overseas currently - and I noticed that StopMoNick is actually from Melbourne and might have some ideas. :)Thanks,Allan.Continue
