Stop motion test

Did you see Tim Burton's Corpse Bride? Inspired by that, I wanted to know how difficult it could be to make a stop motion animation. And so, I did it. The clip below is a 9 second animation made out of 75 still pictures put together in a sequence. Needless to say, it's very poor quality... though I like the effect of the laptop closing itself!

Conclusion: it is difficult to make soft bodies remain still and it is also a very lengthy process. Taking one picture after another, moving the objects just fractions of a centimeter, easily deprives of the sense of the real speed of the motion. It was nevertheless fun.
