Unfortunately my group was unable to get the animation made in this workshop off of the computer but I still wanted to reflect on the session. As I plan to use stop motion for my animation I didn’t want to miss this workshop and was interested to see what we would be doing. We basically used a program called iStopmotion and a set up of lights and a camera to produce a short animation using various toys and props. It was good practice with frames and creating movement to give the impression of life in inanimate objects. I would consider getting this software to use when creating my own animation as the ghost images and ability to edit frames was useful.
As stated in the previous post my beetlejuice animation was also unsuccessful when it came to rendering the animation at home. You can still see some of the movement created in the outcome but it isn’t really beneficial uploading it to my blog. I also learnt a lot about After Effects during this workshop and I’m so annoyed I’m not able to show this. This workshop was on making a 2D image animation appear to be 3D by altering the camera angles and depth and position of the images. It was quite confusing to get a grasp of but in the end I was really happy with my outcome.
