Stop Motion

Post by King of Brix » Mon Jan 07, 2008 6:15 pm

A stop motion animation will soon be brought to you by Red Clay Studios. Also, the new member "brace_face... etc" should be referred to as Dan, and is the less intelligent of the two founders of Red Clay.

Ask Dan why he used his e-mail address as his username. That is rather odd.

As for the stop-motion idea, I say go for it! Make sure you have a tripod though, and proper lighting. Judging by the latest thing from Red Clay Studio's, it would be reasonable to say this will be epic.

Nice, I hope it turns out good. I've been recently thinking of taking a crack it, but I've been swamped with other things.

Ok, I tried making a stop motion movie once, it is an extreme undertaking. Just remember as a general rule: Even if you think you are taking enough pictures, you aren't.

It's turned out fairly nicely, I'd say. I'll finish uploading it and link it... It's pretty funny.

NUU: Desert expanded, and made cooler. NUU stands for new universe update, which are any updates we are adding to the playing field. Therefore, you can look forward to another stop motion at some point to celebrate. Also, we've been making stop motions for a while, so they look (hopefully) experienced.

Nice animation, but I do not think this topic should be in Bonus Material.

And where, may I ask, should this go?

General Discussion, Bonus Material is for things like stat cards, stats, new weapons, and so forth.

After taking these positions into consideration, I've gone with the third option and poof! Now it's in Artwork!

It was very well done. I liked the part with the Visorak figures. It would be great to see more from you in the future.

Movies are art. And the movie was kickass.

Nice job.
Take piltog's advice next time and duct tape your camera to something so that it doesn't shake around so much. Do the same with your set.

Also, try using a little higher framerate. If possible, crank it up to 12 or 15 frames per second. What animation program do you use? Are you using WMM?
