ARTS, CRAFTS & COOKERY » HELP PLEASE: SHOOTING FOOTAGE FRAMES = SECONDS
Shooting Footage Frames = Seconds,
Ive never got the hang on Frames = Seconds
so im wondering if anyone can help i used to just shoot the footage then see how long it lasted for,
i know 24 frames is 1 second, but working out higher+ or lower -seconds just gets me confused , my maths it terrible, not too bad on some things, but larger things & more complicated working outs i find difficult.
frames=seconds*24, so 1 second=1*24 or 24 frames
seconds=frames/24, so 1 frame=1/24 or 0.042 seconds
A 10 second film would have 10*24 or 240 frames
36 frames would take 36/24 or 1.5 seconds
Hope this helps!
what about minutes and frames?
well, 1 minute=60 seconds so you can times minutes by 60 to get seconds and then use the formulas above.
frames=minutes*60*24 or 1 minute=1440 frames
minutes=frames/60*24 so 1 frame=1/1440 or 0.0007 minutes
You can work out from this that a 30 minute film like 'a grand day out' has got 30*60*24 or 43200 frames!!!
Wow, lots of info Rastophulus!
hey jordan this si an really easy to tell how many frames to take. i did not make this up it was made up by the guy who did nightmare before christmas. hope it makes sencethis is a trick where you can find out exactly how many pics you need to take for a seane.
now you say...
one... the time it took you to say one was six frames worth or pics.
ok now say...
one-thou. that would take 12 pics
one-thou-sand-one =24 pics. so one thousand one would be one second worth of pics.
so say you want your puppet to move his arm frome the bottom of his body to the top. then get out of your chair and you your self move your arm frome the top to the bottom of your body while you do it try to do it in that the time it takes you to say one. if you did it you made a really fast movement that did not look that normal thats how your pupet would look if you only took 6 pics so then say one-thou while doing the same thing you did before... now that was much more normal that just saying one. you can apply this to anything. but say if you have a long movement then video yourself then apply the one-thou-sand-one rule to it while you wach yourself. i hope this make sence and will help you i know it has helped me =D
Good tip J-Snake!
hi i hope this helps a bit, i use a program called monkeyjam and it tells you how many frames there is persecond i always make it so that there are 25 frames per second just like aardman
Really good tips everyone!
im just starting out, so i need alot of information about everything.
Where can you buy Monkeyjam, modelmaker93?
oh, and sorry for my bad english.
monkeyjam is free to download
just click the download button at the bottom
if Aardman do Wallace and Gromit frames as 24Pictures per second, Shaun the Sheeps are known to be lower, do you know how many pictures per second are in Shaun the Sheep perhaps?
15 fps(frames per second) would mean 15 frames in 1 second. 1 fps would mean it all lasts for 1 second. experiment
no ,its 24 frames makes 1 second
Its possible that Aardmans film Shaun the Sheep on two's Harry which means every frame is double up so you only need 12 shots per every 24 frames.
Thats right cavor. I remember hearing it on Off the Baa DVD behind the scenes but I forgot what they said. I might do mine on two's as mine will be a series (I will send it to Blue Peter or just CBBC) of 8 in one series and the name I have decided to use will come to you soon as I think it will be more safe for me and my animation to not be stolen from someone else. I will send a picture of the character when I have made it.
Aardman tends to film on "twos" for most things it keeps cropping in places now and again
Okay Guys so I'm using a video camera rather than a digital camera to make my Stop Motion Animations. So instead of taking a picture,I press the record button twice really fast so it kind of makes like a pic. 2 questions:
1. Is this a good idea or should I use a digital camera?
2. Would the fps (frames per second) still be the same?
Harry. in shaun the sheep he uses 24 fps. but he is taking 2 pictures every time so it's the same as 12 fps. i actually think it's the same in wallace and gromit...... me myself use 15 fps. that works fine for me.
That still didn't answer my question. plz leave answers!
Hey vidkid12. thats probably not the best idea because the fps wont be the same everytime so the animation will look jumpy. i would suggest a digital camera hooked up to a stop-motion program.
ok thanx that really helps. Also umm what software would you prefer?
hello! any1!? any1!?! what software should i be using??
I just use wmm. I dont have anything professional.
o wat is wmm stand 4?
depends what kinda computer you have, like i have a mac so i use iStopmotion 2
for PC you should probably use stopmotionpro. hope that helps
yea thanx that really helps. I have a pc and i am currently trying out the stopmotionpro trial and soon will purchase it. TY also do you have any tips on any stop motion animation?
