How to Make a Simple Stop Motion Video Using Windows Movie Maker

About: I dunno... I like school unlike a lot of people and love science and mechanics. I remember playing Gizmo's and Gadgets when I was young, and love correcting peoples spelling and grammar on the internet. I al...

This is, to put it simply, a five minute project I made at school to show I could put together a simple film.

These are a few examples of stopmotions that a friend and I worked together on, although never spending enough time on them.

Lego Tetris (And yes, we realise that some of the bricks are the wrong length)

Some famous or well made examples.

    Yeah, that's really excellent. Would you mind if I added it to my Instructable as another to view? All credits to you obviously.

    Yeah, that would great! The only alteration I made to your instructable was that I only used four pictures per second (picture duration .25). Thanks so much! This is our first one and we learned how from your instructable!

    Wow! This is a good one. I'm really excited to create my own stop-motion video. I'm thinking of providing more photos to achieve smooth transition :) A day or a week's time, I think I could make my own stop-motion, considering I'm a newbie when it comes to this one. :)

    Try to check this article that I read earlier at(

    You can use this method with claymation as well. And to make it super easy all you need is a web cam and take picture then you can figure out the rest.

    This is ABSOLUTELY amazing! I have been wondering how to create an animation for a long time and you made it look relatively easy although I know it took a lot of work. At least after having seen your video it seems doable. Is there an email address to reach you at gnoll? Contact me on mine at info (At) nBay.com I have a few questions.
