Stop Motion is a great and fun way to create animation. When broken down it can be very simple. With this tutorial you will learn how to create a simple short animation sequence. As well as how to work with filters, and time.
The video attached shows the final product of the tutorial, however it is very open to change and I encourage you to have fun with it and explore the possibilities!

When dealing with Stop motion it all comes down to the stills, that one is using. You can create a stop motion animation using just about anything. However one very important thing you must always keep in mind is the look of the work. If you would like it to have a more choppy movement to it, then take less stills. Or if you would like a more fluid motion to the animation take as many pictures a possible.
Step one:
I have provided you with 33 pictures, so save all of them onto the desktop and create a folder to contain them. Make sure you save them in order

Step 2: Uploading into After Effects

There are several ways that one can use After Effects to create a stop motion animation. Doing it this way is a lot simpler and saves a lot of time, especially when you have over a hundred images. As long as they are labeled correctly it works great!

Step two:
1)Open up After Effects
2)Make a new composition, only change the length of the animation to 5:00
3)Go to File> Import> File> and open up the folder that you have recently saved
4)Select the first image (0.1.jpg) Make sure that JPEG sequence and force alphabetical order are checked off, Click open
5)Drag the file down to the timeline
6)Play your animation!

Hello, and welcome to the Instructables community! It's great that you've decided to tell the world about something you've made by publishing an Instructable. We just wanted to let you know that your project still needs a little more work if you want it to be well received on Instructables. Projects that don't include certain basic elements tend not to get the attention that they deserve, and so we'd love for you to check out the list below of what makes a successful Instructable. Successful projects on Instructables include: - clearly written details of a finished project with instruction - as many steps as are necessary to explain your project - clear images that you took of your project for most, if not all of your steps - an intro image - proper spelling and grammar - appropriate cautions or safety considerations I'll give you another opportunity to make any final changes to your project before we publish it. Once you're all set to go, please republish your project and send me a quick comment letting me know that you've made some changes. I'll give it a quick final check to make sure you're on the right path, and then remove this note. Thanks for your submission and we hope to see your project published soon!
Nice one. :) . But, I guess the JPEG sequence and force alphabetical order should be checked on. right?
