WALLACE & GROMIT CHAT » RECOMMENDATIONS
If you cut these up in to smaller pieces, they make great floor boards!
Cut what up?
I saw that on animateclay.com, it looks like a greaat peice of kit. I think it also comes with tiedowns.
Does anyone know were you can buy some story boad papper with the lines already on it also very cheap because of a small budgit?
To make it cheaper you could make a little booklet with story boarding splitting the page into two shots a second with the details of what you need in that scene and what you need to make as well as what happens.
At least that is what i've done with my animations
Thanks i will probally do that or make a template on windows
our drama dept does them, ask yours at school and they should be able to give you them
I'm Afraid I'm On The Bottom End Of The CGI Chain As I Only Have Anim8or. Obviously It Doesn't Produce Amazing Results But It's Good Enough For Me And My Films And That's All That Matters.
I don't think CGI is for me, even though I am good with computers. CT, I am just about to post on you update thread.
I've got a question:
I'm just making a set for STS and now I want to make a tree. But I don't know how to make the leaves and branches. I'll soon upload a picture, just a little moment, but it would be great if anybody could say me what is the best material to make the tree complete!
Thank you all!
You could use some from outside your house
I've had this idea earlier, too, but then I had a look in our garden, I made a short walk throught the forest but didn't find anything!
And here it's very wet and rainy so I couldn't find something dry
if it is for an animation you don't want to use real leaves because they will die, you could go to a hobby store and get some railroad greenery, or plastic leaves.
I thought also about that but those trees are all to small! But the idea to use something else from there is good, thank you, I'll have a look there
I have Anim8tor. I still haven't worked out how you make meshes though. SAD FAIC! ;
@I love bitzer i make trees for a hornby track i got and what i do is soak car sponges in green paint a couple of times then you use a cheese grater to grate the sponges and you will get small bits of green that you can use as leaves. After that you get some wire wall which you glue it to your twig your using for the tree,using a hot glue gun.Next you glue the green bits,you glue it on by spraying a dilouted pva mixture.You spray it through a plant spray bottle.i sprinkle on the greenbits.
Hoped i have helped !
Thanks for your answer!
But I've got some questions:
What are "car sponges"?
What's "wire wall"?
Thanks for your detailed explanaition, it had helped me a lot! I'll go on and put some sponges now in green color...let's see how it works!
I can upload some pictures like I have done it: Because it shall be a spring scenerie I don't need the tree to have so many leaves, only some "first" leaves which come out in spring.
So I took some twigs with leaves from our garden and clued them to the trunk. It looks quite good althought I think I'll need your method for a "summer" tree! Thanks for that usefull information!
wire wall is ment to be wire wool
car sponge is just a big sponge you can use any really
Oh, then I know what you mean! So you clue that wire wall to the twig so that the twig is solid? Or why do you do it?
You pull the wire wool apart so you see the indivual strands and put blobs of hot glue on to the twig then stick the wire wool to it.Also you have to have a lot of coats of paint so the sponge is hard and you need to use the big holes on the grater
Can someone recomend on how to make fires look realistic and moving water.
Also what what do people use to record (sound) and what program do they use?
*Blows The Cobwebs And Dust Away* -- Any more things I should add?
how about a section for books
"Creating 3-D Animation"
"Basics Animation: Stop Motion"
"The Illusion of life: Disney Animation" I don't have that one but i have heard it is good.
*cough cough cough cough* You blew the cobwebs in my face!
Oops, sorry GLB!
he he he
Maya is a great program, free for 6 months if you are a student but it is £3,645, it's crackers! plasjas, people have been saything that maya is better for game design and 3ds max is better for film production. Neither product is worse, it depends what you are working on.
Does anyone else have stopmotionpro v7?
P&B, is it OK if I use your list to add to my spanglefish site that I'm revivng this instant.
You will all be credited.
Add Van Aken Clay to the list

This Is A Good Animation program http://www.clayanimator.com/english/stop_motion_animator.html
Hey, Ian (or anyone else for that matter who uses mac.) As you may know I've purchased a Macbook Pro recently, well...how good is istopmotion? and which version of it should I get? Becuase as far as I know SMP is not compatible.
does any one know how to stop your models getting mucky as you make them and afterwards?
keep you hands clean. Work with one colour, the lightest if possible and then move onto the next otherwise keep some hand wipes with you as you work and clean when you work with a new colour.
fimo is good
i use it
thanks for the advice
can you clean model that are already abit dirty
what do you mean abit?
i think you mean very dirty!
i sometimes use a knife and take a a layer from it or take the litters from it by a fork or some tools
i usually use this
maybe it could help
