"The Viltrox L116T definitely works for stop motion - I have a number in the bag that I use for all sorts of projects. Often I find them too bright for my needs and will ND gel them and or gaffa tape over half the light or more to control them a…"

"Indeed this is why its makes total sense to use lightroom to create high res jpg's from the Raws as the first step of the stop mo work flow. You can then harness the full power of the extra dynamic range and quickly play with luminosity of…"

"Davinci is definitely something to look into - It has come a long way since I last looked at it for sure! For the cost of a years subscription to Adobe CC you could have already bought DaVinci Resolve. "

"It is probably better to import the stills into After Effects and do you rig removal there, then export as high res pro res for premiere pro - proxies are super simple to make these days in prem and Its a good idea to do that -- simply select the…"

Phil m replied to Michael's discussion Camera/Lens combination advice?
"Well i guess experience is what i'm basing this on - I have a full set of lenses available when i shoot but i'm often fighting over the 35mm for the sets, so will use the 28mm & 35mm the most - then occasional tight head shot on the…"

"We should sort out a date for you to come over - my moco rig is in the shed in the garden, so allowable under the current regulations. I am in Bradninch, just N of Exeter, easiest route is via J28 on the M5."

"Well that would be cool - I'm interested in what your motor settings are for your focus and are you using any micro stepping??  Are you Arduino uno based? I'm trying my hardest to get by with just A4988's for this project however…"

"The DF tutorials and manual are pretty thin, and don't always refer to the basic unit, as they use a moco interface that allows them realtime moves. Happy to answer any questions I can help with."
