Stop-motion try-out
The portal is back, now in stop-motion
About this creation
I'm considering making this moc into a stop-motion,
the following movie was just a try-out.



As you could probably see there's still a lot of work, projects like this require full concentration all the time, you easely make a small mistake, like forgetting to add a small green brick.
my lighting was terrible and then there's the railroad, I don't want it to get in view but if I remove it I wouldn't get a smooth video.
Anyway, it's an interesting project which needs a lot of preperation but the result is nice I think.
Well, I hope it works out next time

btw, here's another one
(keep a close eye on the sword)


...and another something :)

Quoting Leda Kat =^..^= Wow cool!!! Keep trying these, don't give up they have so much potential. I can't wait to see things happening inside that portal, it has the potential to be an amazing production.
thanks, the final bit of motivation I needed :P

Definitely worth pursuing this. With a little refining and a story you can create something really special.

Great job I have done stopmotion stuff before and I will give you a hint,if you use outdoor lighting or florescent the stopmotion movie will turn out with flickering light.

I like the concept, and I know it was just a test, but it was choppy and "unrefined". But it was great! I'm gonna do something like that later...

Super cool! A bit rough around the edge's, but far better than anything I'd have the patience for.

Good animation, it was some what smooth although there was some light flicker and camera bumps in the beginning.On another note you could do the portal the way you did with moving the bricks or, you could try something a little more fancy like, rotoscoping or masking in what you see in the portal. Just a thought.

Quoting El Barto ! Really cool build and technique here! I think when you write 'try-out' there's an understanding that it won't be 100% polished, but you want to see if a concept is worth pursuing. I think you've got your answer! Awesome!
exactly :p

epic job! looks very good so far. and you'll only get better as you do more stop-motion, so i'm super excited to see the awesome stuff you'll do next. 5/5!

Now that is a pretty darn cool effect! Wish I had the patience to try something like that. Nice one! ~ Chris.

I would love to try stop-motion out, someday. You're living the dream!

Cool attempt! One thing I noticed that kind of killed the illusion was that the green bricks were occasionally just visible beyond the edges of the portal, plus their shadows were always visible. You're going to need to sink the green bricks into the ground a little, or use a light tent, to kill the shadows. Even with those flaws, this was still a very cool effect for a brickfilm. Perfect it a bit and you're sure to get something remarkable.

Quoting Max Pointner NEVER use light from the sun. It can be unreliable because of the clouds.
so I noticed :P got to find some of those lamps with umbrellas in the cap :P

Wow. That is clever. When it started, I thought: Oh no. Another one of those boring camera pan tests. But that technique was really clever! One suggestion: NEVER use light from the sun. It can be unreliable because of the clouds. Otherwise, great work!

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 the concept is fantastic! i loved it! very nice effect! the lighting was flickering a little, i guess you did nt use powerful enough lamps! as it seems to be the time passing between takes! a small glitch, something to remember! i m also interested in knowing how long! great work-experiment sebeus!
about 45 minutes but actually I rushed thing quite a bit, I shoudl have taken more time to check if every brick was in place

Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy Man, this is really impressive. I'm still affraid of doing stop motion. How long did it take you to create this movie?
about 45 minutes, including set-up and computer work
