It's definately copy and paste. This might be good, if this site was more directed to stop motion. We only have a few who claim to be film makers, so I find it unneccessary.

I found that someone had posted different websites about this. I just put them together and added some more.

Yes, but this helps the people who do stopmotion. Not everyone does decals but we still have a post to it.
