Hey @davehakkens
Could you tell me: what camera do you use for making your videos ?
it seems easily to transport, to film during a trip and with a nice video quality.
Thanks
François

In short. A canon s120 (60%) and a Canon Mark 2 (30%) iPhone (10%)

Hello @davehakkens ! You’ve mentioned Photo Studio for doing stop motions, I tried googling it but I found different ones for regular photo editing, there is one called Arcsoft photo studio and another zoner photo studio!

May you share a link to the one you meant? Thanks!

Ok, or did you mean like a regular studio haha, I thought it’s a software for stopmos that lays the photos on top of each other or something. Which one is it?

Haha yep, was talking about a regular studio, something like this
I use premiere pro to edit the video, including stopmotion.

Hello, I need some help with this step! (Maybe the answer can be found in the downloadable start-kit on Story-Hopper but the link to the dropbox will not work)

Hi @davehakekkens, I’m a big fan of your work. I have a quick question. What software do you use to make the animation in your videos? I’m especially talking about your Precious Plastic videos.

thank you

@davehakkens great thanks. Where did you learn to do that kind of things? Watching videos? Does it have a name?

Hi Dave,
The download link on https://story-hopper.com/share-your-story/ doesn’t seem to do what it’s supposed to; at least not in my Chrome browser. When I click on the button, it downloads an htm file named “view”. I downloaded the package by right clicking and opening in a new tab instead. Now here is another issue I see: the Outro file in the package is only a sound effect with no visuals. Don’t know if anyone else has experienced these issues but thought you might want to look into them.
Cheers!

There is problem with downloading process. Just try to download again and make sure that downloaded file got it “max size”.

Za pierwszym razem miałem to samo. Nie pojawiło mi się oznaczenie maksymalnego rozmiaru pliku podczas pobierania. Plik zaczął się pobierać do nieznanego rozmiaru, po czym zakończył w 46MB.
Za drugim razem wszystko było już ok. Pojawiła się suma kontrolna 96,9MB i wszystko działało.
