Stop Motion Animation Strut
Don’t forget – animations are due Tuesday!
If you’re doing Stop Motion and still struggling to find a program that works, I have a recommendation. I downloaded five or six programs trying to get one that did what I needed without a lot of fuss or a lot of crashing, but Frames turned out to be the winner. They have a 30 day free trial with access to all features, but the price isn’t horribly expensive. I’m tempted to buy it, because I had a LOT of fun with my project, which was a Steampunk Clockwork Dancer in a train-travelling circus-like show.
The doll is a Japanese Obitsu, with over 20 points of articulation. I can’t help it, I love articulated dolls, and of my collection, she was the best for holding poses and ‘moving’ naturally. To justify my collection, I used her for the project. Now I can use her as an excuse to buy or make more in my quest for the perfect doll to use to create my animation empire. I wigged her, painted her face, and made her costume. Please post yours, as I’m nosy and want to see what everybody did!
I wrote about her on my personal web site if you’re interested.
