    Hi,
    how do you make the characters jump in your movies?
    Do you hang them or what do you do?

    Thanks!

    You can bluescreen them. I have never made even jumping tests but I think with bluescreening it will work. Try reading FAQ.

    or you can do it the way I do (the non-digital way). The camera has to be set up so that you can’t see the floor that the minifig is standing on. Put any kind of those thin bricks under the fig and shoot a frame. Put another one under and shoot again. Then remove a brick and shoot until he’s back on the ground. It’s not as good as blue screen (since you can’t see his feet leave the ground) but it works.
    another way is to put the front of a plastic CD case behind the fig. then, when he jumps, attach the back of the fig to the case (using stickytak) so that his feet are off the ground.
    I’ve used both teqniques in my movies.

    You can use fishing line which game me ok results for a matrix move….just go to watch out for the glare and make sure the fig does not move at all…..i my self attached the string to a wooden “pole” over the set and made a stand to hold it up. Ive heard you can also use a long thin strand of hair for that….or just edit out bricks holding the fig up frame by frame digitaly.

    Uhh…you WANT motion blur. It makes it look more realistic.

    8) The way i do it is with after effects+photoshop. i just make a little armature and animate it that way and then make a mask in photoshop. it may take a long time but if your a neat freak like me and want it to look really good then you can do it that way.
