After a year or so, I began to brickfilm again…
Something I noticed is that for 15 fps, increments between frames have to be really small…
My question was, howmany frames do you guys take for lets say 5 seconds of natural walk? Just an example, more examples will follow. This way I can learnApril 19, 2003 at 8:58 pm #1160
You have to ask yourself how many steps you want the fig to step in that amount of time. 5 steps in 5 seconds? 10 steps? 2 steps? The less the amount of steps, the slower the walk, the harder the animation.

that should help you with walking on 15 FPS.April 19, 2003 at 9:13 pm #1162
Yes I checked it before, quite useful… But it’s still hard to animate walking if you care about the amount of steps and timeApril 19, 2003 at 11:20 pm #1164
I found hali’s walk cycle above to be fine for 15fps. If you want a slower walk, try moving the arms every frame, but only moving the legs every second frame. The leg movement may look a little jerky, but there’s not much else you can do with minifigs.April 19, 2003 at 11:43 pm #1168
for my Machine movie I tried several different ways to get make my minifig run past the cam while being chased. (I was filming at 15fps BTW). My guy was running so I had his hands out-stretched and had his legs going back instead of infront. I first tried ‘left-leg back- legs on ground- right leg back- legs on ground’ but found that he ran to slowly so I just took out the ‘both legs on the ground’April 20, 2003 at 7:57 pm #1208
You were using lego studios correct? that films in 30fps…if im not mistaken..but it looks like you edited it with that and it can not import or export files…so you could not use sma am i right?? or am i wrongApril 21, 2003 at 1:38 am #1238
Actually, Lego Studios uses less than 15fps. I believe its somewhere around 12fps, and I don’t think its even exact.April 21, 2003 at 3:32 am #1244
the camera is 30 fps on full-motion mode. When you press the “take a frame button” it takes two frames. hence: 30 divided by 2= 15April 21, 2003 at 4:21 am #1248
The framerate of my Lego Studios program is certainly below 15fps. What you are saying may be true, but when I created films using Lego Studios, it did not play them back at 15fps. In fact, I did a test to see how many frames would get me to one second, and it turned out to be somewhere around 12, I believe. It was certainly not 15, of that I am sure.
