The first thing you have to do is take the pictures. When you make a stop motion video you are recording a video one frame at a time. You have to move the figure or figures a little bit at a time and take a picture after each small movement. All of these pictures will be combined into the frames of a video.
Here is part of a stop motion video I made (the second half was lost when my computer crashed):
Step 1: Importing the Pictures
- To import your pictures into Movie Maker you first have to click on Add videos and photos
-Then you have to select the pictures you want (if you hold Ctrl you can click on multiple pictures)
-Then click on Open
Step 2: Editing the Pictures Into a Video
-Then click on the edit tab on the top or the screen
-Then you have to change the duration of the pictures. The duration should be between 0.03 and 0.1,it will change depending on how many pictures you took for one second of your video, you will have to experiment to get the perfect speed.
Step 3: Saving the Video
-Then move the cursor over "Save Movie"
-Then click on "For Computer"
-Name the file and click on save
