Is it possible to use an Epsom scanner as a camera for animation on Dragonframe?

Started by Charles Jimenez in ANIMATION TOOLS & EQUIPMENT 7 hours ago. 0 Replies

Hi, I currently have no access to cameras but my scanner. And was wondering if there was an option that allowed you to capture your drawings on DragonFrame using a scanner instead of a camera or rostrum - to take frames using a scanner instead of a camera. So I can capture frames immediately, and can flick through the onion skin to see my drawings live, instead of having to rely on waiting minutes to take frames using the manual scanner Epsom software.Continue

Choice of sculpting materials for moldmaking

Started by Sal Elder in STOPMO NEWBIES. Last reply by patrick zung yesterday. 4 Replies

Hello, I haven't done any moldmaking but would like to try it. I've seen Nick Hilligoss's great video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fWdZnQRzB0. My understanding is that I'll sculpt in one medium (eg NSP) and use another (eg water-based clay) to define the two halves of the plaster mold.My question is, is there a rule for deciding whether the two clays will stick to each other? In the video it seems important that NSP doesn't stick to the water-based clay.Continue

Camera Raw

Started by KC in STOP MOTION & COMPUTERS. Last reply by Maelvon on Wednesday. 3 Replies

Does anyone have any tips for a decent cr2. work flow? I am currently colour correcting in Bridge and attaching the jpeg.'s proxy in Adobe when compositing. Bridge has been a little finicky, I am having file issues even though I have been separating the cr2. and jpeg.'s into different folders. Would it be more efficient to export the image sequence from Dragon Frame and edit those? I am just worried about image quality and keeping as much information as possible.Continue
