How To Make A Paper Timelapse Minecraft Animation
I will be help you out through a series of steps to making a perfect instructable, or close.
You will need:
Minecraft cutout paper
And a good story.........unlike mine which only 11 sec one.
So lets begin.
Step 1: Minecraft Cutouts
First of all, you will need minecraft cutouts which are available on google images. The ones which I will use in this instructable are here.
Now Using a scissor cut out on the outlines of these.
And of course take the print of these first!
Sorry about the pic, cause It somehow messed up.
Step 2: Folding
Now carefully fold the cutouts the way they are lined in the edges. Here's a small video about it.
Once you are done with that, we can move on to Sticking part.
Step 3: Sticking
Now over the white cutout parts, apply glue and stick them to their respective cubical shape. The following video will explain it very clearly. I used the pen as the glue to show you how to apply the glue and where.
Step 4: Making Joints
This is probably the most difficult part and with most people it will be hell.
You have to make now movable parts so that we can later change the Pose of the character while making frame by frame movie.
Here is the picture of the finished step.
Tip- If ou want your joints firm, apply some glue at the interface of the hole and the toothpick.
Step 5: Making Movie Preface
Now, after you have added up everything. Lets begin animating.
Take a big open space which has a uniform background color. Now take your character and place him on the layout.
Also set your camera on tripod and take a picture.
Tip- Use a remote to take camera pics as while taking pictures the camera might shake and distort the as it did for mine.
Also glue your character to the ground with some cheap glue which will come off easily cause you dont want to stick your character forever. It is just to make him stable till e take the picture.
Step 6: Animating
Now in the next shot, move the character a little and take a picture and keep doing this. Also, keep applying glue under the charecters feet to keep him stable in any posture.
Continue this and you will have a good workout :-)
Now don't stop unless you have a min of 80 pics.
Step 7: Getting Togather Everything
Now connect your digital camera to the computer and copy all pics to a folder. Now open windows movie maker and add all the pics. Set the picture changing rate to (one pic per 0.125 sec). And done, you have a nice movie.
Add more and more stuff to your animation. Like add some blocks and make up a good story. Upload the video to youtube and see your views increase.
Hope you liked it and have nice time.
