Topic: Your brickfilming process - in a tecnical sense
I’ve only made a few brickfilms and I’m not sure if I do it the “right”/”best” way.
Maybe you could describe your process or just comments, so we all can have a discussion on the “right”/”best” way to produce brickfilms – in a technical sense.
I’ll try to describe my process here:
I use Helium Frog for frame capture.
Here I film at 15 fps. I only take one picture per movement (not doubles). Are you doing singles or doubles? And why?
Helium Frog generates the scenes as avi’s. It’s the scenes I editing together in my editing program (Pinnacle Studios) – not the single frames. Is that the right may to do it? (My problem here is that I can not edit the single frames that way if I want to).
Then I add sound effects, voices and music.
Sound effects and voice are recorded in Audacity. Should I record I mono or stereo when doing voices? What about the sample rate (right now it’s 44,1 kHz?
When I generate the film my settings are:
Video: AVI, compressed MJPEG (quality 90 %), 24 fps.
Sound: PCM, 16 bit stereo, 48 kHz.
What is your process?
