Stopmotion???
Well I have debated stopmotion for a while now and I was wondering if you guys think I should start Stop-motion.

I've seen some stop-motion before with Lego and I recently discoverd that I can edit pictures. But I don't know of any programs that I can Download

Glad to see you want to make stop motion, but its not nearly as easy as you would think. Stop motion takes a lot of time effort and patience, if you dont have any of them you will go horribly mad! Mua ha ha ha ha ha!!....

Oh, sorry about that got a little out of hand. Anyway there are many many things you need to learn before doing a stop motion and i think this will help a lot.

Along with that you can visit brickfilms.com or BricksInMotion.com both have very usefull things to learn from.

But promose me this, that you will not wind up being an animator like thishttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DjCL0_0Il7w

Why,
Shaking camera
SLOW movement
also notice the 200000 views it has and all the comments saying "how did you do that?!" "Incredible" when anyone could make one in a matter of minuts.

And also dont end up like forrestfire101. he uses very explicit language and theams even thoght he is abou 13 and also animation could be better (IE walking he only makess them bouce about :P)

Ughhh stopmotion hurts my brain. It is funny though, whenever you make a comic, someone is always there to tell you that you are no good cause you should do stop motion instead. And... then you notice that they have had no stopmotion experiences themselves, so who are they to decide that you are horrible. Stop motion is difficult stuff. My latest one took an entire weekend with only taking breaks for meals, and with only about 4 hours of sleep.

Yes between 13-14 but my point is half his animation is just two pictures one with a black circle around the mouth and one without to simulate mouth movements. a three picture walk cycle (avrage is 5-6) and compare him to other animators of his age group. Yes you may think its humorous but why do you laugh? If i he made a video where there were multiple batmans arguing over somthing and i did as well his would be more funny because he uses inapropriate language to animate. along with that none of his LEGO videos heve less than 500000 views because he pesters you to subscribe. a real animator doesnt do as such.

Well, me, Jack and Cole can help you out with this thing if you want. Whatever doubts you got, ask us (I recommend asking Cole the more difficult stuff, since he is the best animator in the group), that is why we are called "A group of buds...", we are here to help each other. Bye.

Mine is a bit less I think I can't remember. But, I am making a huge summer long stopmotion, and I am going to be testing with new framerates. Some parts will be faster because people will be running and stuff. It also will have voice overs and whatnot. I can't wait for it to be done (I only have one scene done though....) Expect it in September.

Hmmm,well,do you have Windows Movie Maker?If so,try 16FPS or 8FPS.I am still waiting for a YouTube account...Anyway,I usually use 8FPS or 16FPS.There is a good tutorial on YouTube on how to make LEGO Stopmotions with Windows movie maker,it will show you how to make 16FPS or 8FPS.Hope this helps.

Dude, I already made an animation and I use Windows Movie Maker, but thanks for trying to help anyway.

Keshen8 is dah man! the inspiration for my best movie came from him! and Forrestifre101 is actually 15 but he looks like he is 13. i guess you could say he is young for his age

anything below 10 is too slow. i use 12.5 and it looks fine. so 10 to 20 is good depending on how small movements you make between pics. over 20 is way too fast though. 15 is in the middle so i suppose its the best

Walking should be done in about 6 frames.
Cars shoulb have very high fps and i mean in the 50-90 range for the most realistic apperance, you just have to be patient
