Hello, I have my camera set up on a benro geared head on a dolly track. I’m getting smooth movement on dolly shots by taping a ruler to the track and measuring the movements. However, on pans and…Continue

I'm looking into purchasing LED lights for a stop motion project. Does anyone have any recommendations? My plan is to get higher powered LED lights (20W=200W incandescent) and to use a dimmer to…Continue

"A magnet in the foot will snap it down to the metal floor.  So you put a metal plate in the foot, and place the magnet under the set.  You don't put the magnet there until the foot is touching down. I use a version of screw tiedowns,…"

"Unfortunately I don't seem to have anything about motion blur in my notes, just green screen keying and slowing down time.  I did a test of Reel Smart Motion Blur, but got better results blurring manually in TV Paint, by selecting around…"

"The first thing to make it more cinematic would be to smooth out your moves.  that first clip is a bit juddery.  It looks like the head might move a little to the left one frame, then to the right on the next frame, or have some uneven…"

"Some detailed lines are good for ramping up maybe, but because of the gearing, you actually turn the knob a lot further to rotate the camera head just a little.  (Don't know what the actual gear ratio is.)"

"That's interesting. I didn't think of doing it like that. I was going to tape the marked circle on the markings on the geared head and then put wire next to that. Here's what I made in illustrator. My guess is that I made it too…"

"I just tried to update my post but it failed.  Here is photo.  Yes, the Benro head looks very similar so the same thing would probably work.  One error, my disks are only about 100mm diameter but that is enough.  For a full speed…"

"I was going to get the manfrotto head but the benro was a little cheaper. It seems to be working alright. It has markings on it but they’re not close enough together to accurately measure. Printing the protractor didn’t really work…"

"I use a Manfrotto Junior geared head, which has the 3 knobs which are then geared down for the actual pan movements.  I made a disk for each crank, about 150mm diameter, with markings around the edge and a wire pointer. That allows very fine…"

"Would it be possible to rig a cheap plastic protractor to use as your position markings along with a length of wire to use as a makeshift pointer/indicator?"
