Animations – and another day without the internet!

Wed, 3 Nov 2010

Another day with no broadband connection! Curse you BT Broadband! 

I've been trying to use my time productively though and have done some work on a new model as well as creating some animations of existing models. The animations are all stop motion. Basically, I stick the model down to a backing sheet so that it doesn't move, mount the camera on a tripod then take eight pictures, moving the handle round 45 degrees between frames. 

I drop the pictures into photoshop and animate them using these handy instructions 🙂

The internet is back on so after posting this I'm going to do some work on the www.flying-pig.co.uk website. What did we do before the internet!? I've been disconnected all day and now I have so many things I need to look up!

    Boy, are you right there,

    Boy, are you right there, Rob. I use Google so much for so many vital things every single day that not having it for some reason would be horrible! I feel the need for access to information at my fingertips at home now in the same way I need food. It isn't the same need but it sure feels that way now.

     

    Lovely animation. These mechanisms are going to help me understand automat, I just know it!

     

    Thank you.
