Three Test Videos *Update 2*

Post by Darman on Thu Aug 12, 2010 11:27 pm

I've learned that I cannot prevent light flicker unless I film during the night, boy is that annoying. :d'oh:


Filmed At Night


Filmed During The Day.


I think the difference is quite clear. Razz

If this is caused by outside lighting, try keeping the blinds closed, or film away from the window completely.

Well my blinds aren't the most...efficient so that's not really a option.

Thank you for all the comments, here is another video I made today. I realize it it pretty bad picture quality/sound/animation/sync/everything but I had fun making it and thats all that counts.

The reason it is slow is because it is completely made in WMM, I got tired of Monkey Jam crashing all the time. Razz

Well it has been 24 hours or at least close enough and I have another video with 2 others coming your way.



This is the first video of 5 masking tests, it was made completely in GIMP.

Thanks for the compliment, the reason he FPS is better is because I switched back to Monkey Jam.

I actually do not use a tripod, I build around my camera to keep it secure to the set. Its cheap and it is quite effective, it is also much more stable then a tripod so it is a great substitute. Smile Oh and the light flicker is fixed, it is my camera but when I switch to a certain setting it is considerably lessened.

What program are you using to animate? WMM? If it's WMM, what process are you using to shrink the pics?

Thank you. Oh and I have a quick question for any of you who can possible answer this, I use a Canon PowerShot A570 IS to take the pictures for the animation. Someone said that the reason it sometimes turns the frame yellow is because I have not turned of a Auto Adjust setting, I cannot find it so I would appreciate it if someone could tell me how to turn it off.

He's using a canon, so it should still be manual mode. On the mode dial, it'll probably be the little camera with the "M" next to it. Smile
