I have a canon rebel T3 DSLR camera that I use to animate with. After I’m done taking pictures, I edit each individual frame in the canon picture software that came with the camera. At first after I edited the pictures, I ran them through stop motion pro 8. The program brought down the picture quality and I couldn’t get it to support the high quality images. So instead I decided to run them through monkey jam and they appeared to be fine. But when I converted the picture stream into a video and exported it from monkey jam, the video came out in poor quality. I am not sure if it’s the way I’m taking and editing the pictures or if it’s the software and the way I’m converting the pictures into a video. Please help me, I am not sure what I should do.

Usually when one save/publish(/make it a movie file) there are options. Format, compression, quality, file type e.t.c.

Play around with it if its there, thats how i learn things. :-D

I use Sony Movie Studio 13. I always do my final video render as an MP4 file. You can see the video quality on my YouTube channel (try the Batman video as an example): https://www.youtube.com/user/jonathanhoweslego

The specific settings I use are as follows:
Audio: 128 Kbps, 48,000 Hz, 32 Bit, Stereo, AAC
Video: 29.970 fps, 1280×720 Progressive, YUV, 16 Mbps
Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.000

Of course, regardless of the software, settings or file type, a good camera and great lighting are key. I hope this helps!

Thanks, I actually just figured it out a few days ago. I was just using the wrong software. Now I use Sony Movie Studio for everything pretty much.

I’m a HUGE fan of Sony Movie Studio. I recently upgraded to version 13 and it’s fantastic. I’m very happy with the rendered files as well. Now the only obstacle is ME!
