1. To create the stop motion first you draw something you want to animate for example a stick man.

2. first you draw a stick man and take a picture every time you make his leg move

3. To make him look like hes moving erase his leg and draw it back in but slightly bent making it look like the stick man is walking.

There is a video to show what it would look like after taking all the pictures.


Step 3: What it could look like

If you have everything to make a stop motion and lots of time you can make really good stop motion.

This is one of mine that i did it took a lot of time and a lot of erasing the stick man.

Yes you can use a DSLR with the software.
