Possible camera issue causing misaligned frames?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Roo Nelo May 3. 17 Replies

I haven't posted here in a while, but I've been working on a new animation that I'm unable to make progress on due to an odd issue. What happens is when I take a new frame, it never realigns with the…Continue

I've been using a kit lens with my Nikkon D5200. However, after changing the background for a recent animation, I noticed a great amount of flicker. I've read about using a Nikkon D Type lens with…Continue

"Just an update. I was able to get my hands on a different lens to test. Unfortunately, it didn't solve the issue. I also did the tape marker test. While there was no visible movement between the 2 tape pieces, I still had movement on the frames…"

"Yes, it was the Canon I used. I actually am using a new laptop as well. The 2 manual lenses and the digital lens are Nikon F mount. A tape marker sounds like a good idea. I will try testing it either later or tomorrow. Prior to buying the Canon, I…"

"You said you hooked up to the new camera, so I assume that is the Canon. Using another framegrabber eliminates anything within DF as a fault, but does not exonerate the laptop entirely. Although goodness knows how the laptop itself could be at…"

"I've weighed down the set, added clamps, and made sure to pin/glue the props down. I had tried a few tripods with and without weights till caving in and buying a Manfrotto tripod and Junior head mount. Although they didn't solve the issue,…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Roo Nelo's discussion Possible camera issue causing misaligned frames?
"So if they are misaligned however you import them into the computer, the issue must lie with the physical set up. Do you weight things down with sandbags etc to prevent movement? If it still happens when you have used another table, then maybe it is…"

Roo Nelo replied to Roo Nelo's discussion Possible camera issue causing misaligned frames?
"Yes, I'm using Dragonframe. I did import the frames into AE and Photoshop. They remained misaligned in both programs. I actually installed Dragonframe on a new laptop (I was having constant BSOD with certain programs) and also updated it to the…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Roo Nelo's discussion Possible camera issue causing misaligned frames?
"Oh no! At least if it was the camera you would have found the problem... but then at least it means your camera is fine. So, if it is not the set and not the camera, it must be the computer. I assume you are using Dragonframe. What about taking some…"

"I received the new Canon camera today, and I've been running various tests. Unfortunately, I'm still having misalignment between frames. I turned off pretty much everything I could in the menu. I've tested the camera on the Manfrotto,…"

StopmoNick replied to Roo Nelo's discussion Possible camera issue causing misaligned frames?
"The heating up with live view issue seems to have affected Red cameras too, but I think what happens is that the camera shuts off to stop itself from overheating.  That was one of the reasons I replaced my old Nikon D70 (no live view) with a…"

Roo Nelo replied to Roo Nelo's discussion Possible camera issue causing misaligned frames?
"I believe the camera is around 5 or 6 years old. It was my family's camera, but I don't recall it seeing heavy usage until I started using it for stop motion. I did some searching on Google, which said the Nikon D5200 was tested to have…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Roo Nelo's discussion Possible camera issue causing misaligned frames?
"It does sound like it might be a camera issue, as you seem to have eliminated everything else as a problem. Is it an old camera, as some are only good for about 50,000 shutter releases? The only way to test is to borrow someone's and compare. I…"

"I actually keep auto toggle on as well. Unfortunately, I have to turn off my camera when I go for a break as it can get pretty warm. I'll know if it's something wrong with the mirror or anything else inside my camera soon as I have a new…"

Adam Taylor replied to Roo Nelo's discussion Possible camera issue causing misaligned frames?
"I find that it helps to keep the auto toggle on and set your camera to not turn off while you are away.  I think the issue comes from the mirror inside the camera but I am not sure exactly."

"I don't have access to another camera at the moment. I'll look into it though as trying another camera seems to be my only option left. I attempted to fix it in After Effects but wasn't able to with the type of shots I did. I'll…"

StopmoNick replied to Roo Nelo's discussion Possible camera issue causing misaligned frames?
"I got no idea, then.  Any chance of borrowing another camera for a test? I have "fixed" some shots where the animation was good, but there was a small accidental movement of the set or camera, by adding a pan or zoom in post, so the…"

Roo Nelo replied to Roo Nelo's discussion Possible camera issue causing misaligned frames?
