And which one of the free things is the best.
(you can’t expect anybody to buy Adobe Premier Pro, it’s frigging expensive!!)
The best free video editors are found on Linux.
Such as KDenlive, OpenShot and others…
Some interesting project is vlc media…[Read more]
Blender uses python 2.6.
Blender 2.49b Installer (10.5 MB)
Requires Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7, built with Python 2.6
Install it side by side with python 3.
Do NOT remove python 3.
Anyway here is the link to 2.6 download page:
( I can’t know if you have an 32bit or 64bit OS running…[Read more]
What version of Ubuntu are you using? And are you using plain ubuntu or something else e.g. Kubuntu, EduBuntu, Ubuntu Studio
(You can also do multiple things.)
Add/install the packages that come with Ubuntu Studio.
Search in the ubuntu software center (if ubuntu 9.10) for a good video editor that can do stop motion.
Try OpenShot:…[Read more]
One thing that is missing is a decent film sorter, search function.
In the old brickfilms.com there were options for advanced search to search on every kind of property of films separately.
That functionality is really useful when searching for a specific brickfilm or just searching for the qualities the user likes in a film. Improvement…[Read more]
Blender learning resources post of mine:
I mainly recommend free software because it’s … well… free!
I hereby also recommend Linux to you, give Fedora a try, or Ubuntu. (Software is installed with a handy package manager, thousand of packages available for each distribution through this manager.)
Would advise for audio, Audacity can do the job.
(For more, on Linux and Mac…[Read more]
Blender can do that:
Would advice blender for doing most of the advanced effects.
Here is something for quickly making digital lego’s for in 3D programs:
Ldraw is a standard for digital lego bricks. It has an official library with a lot of bricks. You will need a program to make stuff with, and editor.
LD4DStudio is a very…[Read more]
For video editing
there are actually many nice video editors but most of the good, working ones are on Linux.
Anyway, here are a few nice ones:
Here is another post about a good editor.
Which is actually a 3D app (Blender) that also does video editing very well.
The best programs are on Linux.
You could start with Blender because it’s cross-platform,
it has video-capabilities and you can always learn the other stuff later. Blender is mainly for 3d.
For an idea about what it can do:
Here is a nice list of video editors.
IMPORTANT, most…[Read more]
Look for HeliumFrog, it’s made for brickfilms and has
green screening. It’s also free (and legal).
My bet is to go for, with blender.
It’s free and open source software for Windows, Mac, Linux and other platforms, mainly 3d but also a sequence/video-editor
The mix of 3d and other capabilities makes blender a good choice. You’re probably gonna need 3d for doing special effects, stuff with 3d, CGI.
Blender is always further developed and…[Read more]
Here is my advise over recording hardware:
For the camera, don’t go for the cheapest or for the most expensive, the cake is somewhere in the middle.
I wouldn’t recommend buying a camcorder just yet.
You have camcorders now with DVD, build-in hard drive and videotape but they are all very prone to mechanical stress.
There is now a new…[Read more]
Would recommend, while you have a PC.
Try Linux, flavour anything let’s say… Ubuntu and use it’s software manager.
(Thousands of programs a few clicks, search terms away.)
Search for video editor, you will be amazed at the quality of the few amazing good video editors that are hiding in that list!
The split video into frames option could be located in the filters menu.
(It is in GAP 2.6)
There is a new version of Gimp and GAP: 2.6.
You might want to update Gimp and GAP.
This is my source of information about GAP:
Convert programs should be able to do stuff like this.
Programs like e.g. MediaCoder or SUPER.
(Don’t limit yourself to those two.)
This is also done with video editor programs / animation programs.
(Scale down images and paste them together so they form an animation, film, video.)
Probably possible with Blender’s sequence editor.…[Read more]
Blender is a good 3d program (it’s free).
But, and this counts for any 3d program including maya, studio 3d autodesk, others…
You will have to learn to use it.
This will take some time to produce good results.
It definitely can do the stuff you ask.
Once saw a movie made with blender about an explosion of an atom bomb on…[Read more]
Here’s a answer to your question:
Is the sound in Helium Frog also visible?
Like it is the case in audacity and other applications.
What audio formats are supported?
(e.g. mp3, aac, wma, ogg, flac, midi,…)
Congratulations on the 0.4.0.0 release.
Especially like the mini figure editor.
Is it also possible to make a texture and use it for a brick?
Is the program using the http://www.ldraw.org 2009 release libraries? What version of the ldraw library is it using?
