Stop Motion Animation Experimentation – with Monkey JamPosted: December 10, 2013
After doing some research online I found a simple bit of free stop motion animation software called Monkey Jam. Initially I ran into a few problems with the software (like it must be only program running and not being able to set movie image size before rendering) which Iv outlined in my reflective journal. And even though it is a simple enough program to use it took some time getting used to.
I have posted a few of my experiments with the Frames Per Second (FPS). If I decide to produce a quality piece of stop motion animation work it will be important to understand the effects of different speeds of FPS to achieve the effect I want.
I also discovered I need to make a standpoint for the camera or invest in a tripod.
