You can buy it for about $50 or try the demo version. The advantage to this program is that you can see what you are animating as you take each frame. This advantage is lost if you do not have a camera that works with the program, so either do some web research, try out your camera, or contact Boinx. Step #2: Get ideas and plan it out Watch some of our suggested videos (Neighbours, End Love, Sledgehammer, Hunter College High School, Pixillation Lab Orizzonti) and others online to figure out what stop motion magic your group wants to do.

Make: DIY Projects, How-Tos, Electronics, Crafts and Ideas for Makers

One of my fondest memories of being a kid is my dad teaching me how to make animations. We’d take a notebook and draw pictures in the top margin of each page. Each picture would be one frame of the animation, so that when you flipped the pages, you could see the object in motion. Having been a Royal Australian Air Force pilot, Dad’s animations were of biplanes invariably crashing in a big explosion, while mine were of horses rearing up and galloping across the pages.

Easy Stop Motion Animation for Beginners. While my girls have been in a little bit of camp this summer, it’s mainly been Camp Mom for our family: local adventures, crafts, and lots and lots of unstructured play.

Easy Stop Motion Animation for Beginners

We’re lucky to have some great neighbors with kids, and our girls have been lost in imaginative play that expands beyond the reach of anything I could possibly fabricate for them. However, we’ve had a few mornings filled with creative projects and this stop motion animation project is a winner. If you’re looking for a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) project, this is for YOU!

For the uninitiated, stop motion animation is a film making technique that makes inanimate objects appear to move on their own. Think Gumby or Wallace and Gromit.
