Need help for the love of god.November 27, 2008 at 4:41 am #403416

I got the driver to work and the webcam is working fully. The only thing is I don’t know how to transfer my pictures into a save folder or something so I can put them onto a Movie Maker. Any help with this?November 27, 2008 at 5:16 am #403419
Attention everyone, everything is under control. I now have a working mic, a working camera(it doesn’t have that zoom factor thing though?!) and I’m almost done with my sets. Scripts are on the way. Hopefully all this build up will make the movie worth it.November 27, 2008 at 7:30 am #403422
Most of the beginners start out with a webcam. Because webcams always connect to computers directly, you can easily use (free) animating software to capture your frames with. I didn’t tell you this right away because you said you have no budget, so I didn’t expect you to have a webcam to animate with anyways.
Still, make sure it has manual focus and settings.November 27, 2008 at 2:18 pm #403433

It has the settings but it doesn’t have a manual focus atleast that I know of. Never used a webcam before. Its a logitech STX 2004ish.November 27, 2008 at 4:33 pm #403444
Yeah, your webcam has fixed focus (which is bad because you can’t un-blur things). A solution like this one might work, though. And it’s free, too! It’ll require some nerves of steel and technical skills though. If you’re willing to break open your webcam and able to “hack and slash” the thing into manual focus without damaging your webcam, you might end up being able to animate very easily.
However, even with fixed focus you can start practicing your animation and set building and everything.November 27, 2008 at 7:20 pm #403449
Edit: I read the guide. I’m somewhat confused by the tutorial. Can someone give me a better in depth version of it? I have no experience with webcams so any help would be greatly appreciated.
