"I also use Chavant NSP for sculpting and water based clay for the bed. I like to get the water based clay to a consistency where it is soft but not glutinously sticky. If I have any concerns about damaging the surface of the sculpt, I put it into…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to First City Films's discussion I've Tried Everything - Flickering Issues...
"Have you dimmed your LED lights? They work on PWM, which basically turns them off and on so quickly the human eye only sees a dimmer light. Some cheap LEDs do it quite slowly. You can get 10K PWM dimmers, which switch at 10,000 times a second. Have…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Bernie Thiedeman's discussion Stop motion cel erasure animation
"Hi Bernie Although people talk about green screening, it is not essential to use green. I often use blue, as it is close to the colour of the sky anyway. Really all you do is choose a colour that is as far away from the colours of your image as…"

"Are you shooting it against a green screen, and then keying it out? Is that why you are thinking of limiting the colour palette? You could shoot against a black screen and do a Luma Key, or alternatively pull a track matte from your green screen key…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Roo Nelo's discussion Nikon Live View Issues
"I wonder if what the camera is doing is to see the image as needing the aperture to be adjusted for brightness, and when the camera is turned off the aperture reverts to fully open? So when the camera is turned on again still in manual mode the…"

"Thanks! I am glad you found it interesting. The Great Hall set is quite exciting to work on. We have some sculptures that fit onto the fireplace, so it is far from complete. The big scene it is used for is the vision of Hell, where my anti-hero…"

"I'm 3d Printer-curious, but know next to nothing, so this was a good introduction to the kinds of things you can make.  I was mainly thinking of props, too. I would probably start with trying to get my head around the software, as I have…"
