Missing sound - export via After Effects

Started by Miguel Angel "Chiyu" Helu in SOUND. Last reply by Miguel Angel "Chiyu" Helu on Thursday. 3 Replies

Hello everyone, Looking for some help, hopefully someone has already been in the situation I am right now and can give me some insights. The problem is sound. Somehow the sound clips are not been synced during my export via After Effects. So my procedure is the following: 1. Import raw photos into Adobe2. Change to 16 bit3. Change fps to 243. Export them into Quicktime Pro Ress 444 Is there an option in Dragonframe to make sure that the sound gets attached directly to the raw images? Thank you Continue

Started by First City Films in STOP MOTION FILM DISCUSSION. Last reply by StopmoNick on Thursday. 5 Replies

Getting ready to film a feature and I can't get rid of flickering issues. Have been watching Youtubers and reading blogs so I've blacked out everyting, using LEDs, have cranked my Fs up high as they will go and my SS down to the point of blowing out the picture (but found my best results at F11 and SS 1/3) on my Sony A77 with Zeiss 85mm. Still have some issues...see attached. Nothing auto is turned on. Any advice?  Thank you in advance.Continue

Started by Tatu P in ANIMATION TOOLS & EQUIPMENT. Last reply by Richard Pender-Brookes Sep 21. 32 Replies

Hello wise board of SMA! I am planing to make simple moco unit with Arduino system. I got great help from previous post about the subject and from Simon Tytherleighs comments.Things have developped plesant ways since last time I looked to this subject. Seems that it is possible to do system with ~400€! One thing what puzzles me is bearings of pan and tilt head. I am planning to make U shaped one. Have you used some axial ball bearing for Pan? Maybe something like this:https://www.vxb.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=Kit7852Or do you have it without any bearings, just wax or something?How about Tilt?Thank you,-TatuContinue
