:D :D :D Hello!!! Thanks to some help from some other fellow users, I have finally got at least one of my films up! This was actually made about a year ago, and has really cheesy text segments, but nontheless, this was my first attempt. The music fits pretty good too.

Thanks for looking! Cya! 8)

You haven’t made the folder public, we can’t see it.

Right click on the file and select ‘copy shortcut’. Then paste it in a post. That way we won’t have to wait for the folder to become public.

That was great. Only thing i didnt like much was that the lighting constantly changed when they were fighting (dont know if it was supposed to happen) and then the camera shook a little.. But it was good..

Psst… for your next film, make sure your link looks like this:

About the film: I liked it! I missed quite a few elements I like in good films (which you promised would all be there), but then again, your swordfights were kind of interesting, and it definitely had this trailer-like feeling all over it!

Are we ever going to experience the complete film?

:cry: :cry: :cry: I’m not sure if the full thing will ever show. I’m having a little trouble. I made this as soon as I got my lego studios set. Then it didn’t work on my fast XP computer, so I used the old, EXTREMELY slow computer. I got about 3/4 of it done, then I got the XP cd for studios, then the camera didn’t work on that computer for some strange reason. And to make matters worse, the old computer doesn’t have internet OR even a CD burner! So I’v bought myself a good quality web cam and am using the Anasazi program, which is also having problems(when you press the button to show the previous frame at the same time as the present one, it locks up and I lose it all. I know it’s not my computer because it’s brand new and this is the only thing that gives it problems. If you have any suggestions, they will be gracoiusly accepted. Thanx!

did you make the trailer using LS? How did you get the movie to show that large. Everytime I make a movie is LS I get this tiny little screen.

LS does use a small screen thingy, your right. I know that and everyone else does. As he did say in his above post, he used Anasazi Stop Motion Animater (aka SMA) and that is how the size got bigger

Pretty good. I liked the sets a lot. The biggest improvements could come in lighting and camera movement, two of the biggest issues among brickfilmers, especially newbies. Actually, though, niether of these bothered me too much in this particular film, especially the camera movement. It sort of fit.The animation was pretty good, and as wandrer mentioned, you certainly acheived a very trailer-like feel. Good job.

Hi Natethegreat,

your problems with Anasazi can probably be mended. Although this belongs more to the hard/software section.

In the camera settings dialogue of SMA there is an option which says compression, set it to ‘uncompressed’ or ‘full frames’ I dont know what it is exactly. There is another option which says format where you can choose between two different ‘flavours’ set it to the other one. After doing these setting things worked for me.

by the way do you have version 1.1 installed?

I guss it could be the older version. I don’t know when I got it. As for my films, that was my first one, and i was very inexperienced. I do have a good camera now, and am working on a music video for ‘the middle’ by jimmy eat world. does anyone know a good program I can use to compile all the stuff together with? Right now I’m using Windows Movie Maker, which works great except that it saves movies in a not so great quality wmv file
