    Default Animation

    I would like to create an animation. I will be shooting stills and then re-editing them in photoshop. A bit like this clip I made,

    Although this is quite a good short animation it has its faults!
    Such as:

    1. The cameara appears to be jumpy
    2. The animation appears to be laggy and lacks a bit of detail.

    Any advice on what software to use? I need summet basic but yet effective. Ive tried adobe premiere to redo the animation but no luck.
    I tried VEGAS 4.0 but yet again become to messy and complicated...

    I used a webcam (although it only records in 640x480) and some stop motion software to record a single frame at a time. You could try the same by connecting your camcorder up to the computer and getting a live feed from it and then try using some stop motion software (takes ages though).

    This is called Stop Motion animation and a good web cam can do the job.

    My friend shot this in 5 hours, and I edited it and added music and titles for him. It is very 'low tech' but it shows that animation can work even when 'badly' done.

    I think there is a program called JPEGtoAVI that allows you to select a series of still images and load them into this application and then get it to stick them together and play them back for you.
