Maddie’s Stop-Motion Animation Test

Maddie and I are proud to present her first stop-motion animation test! I have to say that it’s at least as good as my early basement projects.

Maddie captured the individual frames using her new video camera. I pulled the frames into Blender, adding titles and transitions. I also slowed the frame rate down to around 12fps before pulling it back up to 24fps.

Things we learned:

  • 24 is a lot of frames to make 1 second of video
  • Use a tripod!
  • Lighting is important, and the sun is a good light source

We hope you enjoy!
