I'm currently working on a project taking a lot of influence from python era cut out animation and I'm trying to use stop motion rather than photographing and using Toon Boom, photoshop etc. (mostly because I like result I've got in tests and partly because I just prefer the process).
The rig I have been building is basically several layers of horizontal glass spaced a few centimetres apart to create the illusion of depth that I will photograph from above. I've seen similar layouts used by other animators but I haven't been able to find any images or information on how to light this to create even appearance and avoid refections on the layers of glass.
Any suggestions or advice on lighting layers of glass?
Here's an amazing thread about cutout animation featuring advice from Bianca Ansems:
Thanks, very helpful
