What is FPS?
FPS is Frames Per Second
The Higher The FPS, the Faster your pictures will play.
What FPS should I use?
For Brickfilming, I would use 15.
Here Are Some Other Choices:
12, Easy to make, Choppier
15, Balance between Effort, and Quality
24, Hard, Very Smooth
What Camera Should I Use?
It all depends. If you are on a cheap budget, use a Logitech Webcam,
If you have alot of money to spend, I would use a Camera, Like A Canon, Nikon, FUJIFILM, etc.
With a camera, i HIGHLY recommend a tripod.
Mac: IStopmotion, DragonFrame, FrameByFrame,
PC: Stopmotion Pro, DragonFrame,
( I use a Mac, so I don’t know a lot about PC software)
You need a DARK room. NEVER use natural light.
Use 3 Lamps, One On the Left, one on the Right, and One in the Back.
hey Mac tnhxx that helped a lot:)
How do I add effects?
You can download pre-keyed footage, of explosions and such,
then use a movie editing program such as IMovie, After Effects, or Sony Vegas.
Import your stop motion movie into the program.
Then drag in the effect.
Move the effect around until it is in the correct place.
I AM RUNNING OUT OF IDEAS. GIVE ME SOME IN THE COMMENTS!
I’m quite torn on the natural light. In photography I prefer natural light than with artificial. Would you care to list the advantage/disadvantages of natural vs artificial light for brick filming?
Very helpful tips, thankyou!
With lighting, is there a better wattage of bulbs to use or does it not matter as long as they are all consistent?
Thank you very much! I am much more comfortable with natural light though, since it offers more illumination for me. I just choose the best time of the day to shoot. Not too bright, not too dark
