Lego Stop Motions

Does anyone here make stop motions? I made my first one today. The program I used was called FrameByFrame. It's easy to use, but it destroyed the quality of the pictures.

Stop with the incomplete knex contests...

Ok. So this is something that has been bugging me for AGGEESSS now. All of these Knex contests, hosted by people who clearly no nothing about knex. (Sorry for being a bit harsh) And also, with a massive lack of presentation, pictures, and/or prizes. I mean, in about the last week, I've seen at least 10 knex competitions and challenges. Well sure, maybe the odd knex competition or whatever, but not loads of comptetitions that are stupid. Sorry to the guy who did this, but I mean, someone made a ball machine contest, no presentation, picture or prize, with 3 random categories. I mean, theres nothing new, nothing challenging, so whats the point? Maybe you thought this whole topic was harsh and mean, but see the other side of it. STOP POSTING STUPID CONTESTS!

Whale hunting season, begins again...

Just interested in how "ible" members felt, about Japanese whaler's entering protected zones for the purpose of research.. This is also the first year they will be escorted by an Australia research vessel to gather documentation to use against this process. The fleet has recently set sail for our southern water's with the intention of harvesting humbacks for the first time in decade's. The Australia Anti whaling vessel's, as usual should provide for an interesting event... So what I'd like to know is, since the rest of the world say's NO to whaling why do we not as global power's tell the Japanese to cease... I'm not talking everthing, but atleast during migratory season when they are in sanctuary's and sitting duck's... STOP TALKING ABOUT IT AND STOP WHALING NOW!! Whale can't taste that good, make a synthetic version like fake crab.... fake whale... they need to wake up and deal with it... they are not theirs to take. They are our's, so leave them alone...!!

Quit asking if I have anything coming out.

Lately there have been a few dozen people asking me if I have anything new coming out.  I'm getting sick and tired of this, so let me give you a few reasons as to why I haven't made anything for the past 4 months: - I haven't posted anything new because I respect my viewers.  I am dedicated to making nice and good performing guns, and I try my best to perfect anything I make for as long as I need to.  I don't want to give people crap, I want my viewers to look at QUALITY guns.  I'm tired of seeing these crap guns getting a few thousand views in a short period of time while simultaneously burying good guns down in a pile of garbage.  For example, this lame knex ripoff pistol has 2,000 more views than the DD-27, and the DD-27 came out at least 5 months before this pistol. - I'm busy.  For example, State mandated exams are coming up soon, and our school is working our butts off trying to get us ready for it.  I also have a social life outside instructables.  Long story short, If you want to know when I come out with something new, just subscribe to me. I'll come out with something when I post something. It takes away a bunch of annoyance that adds to the stress I already have. If you think I am arrogant and want me to stop, PLEASE STOP ASKING.

World's smallest stop-motion animation.

Professor Fletcher's invention of the CellScope, which is a Nokia device with a microscope attachment, was the inspiration for a teeny-tiny film created by Sumo Science at Aardman. It stars a 9mm girl called Dot as she struggles through a microscopic world. All the minuscule detail was shot using CellScope technology and a Nokia N8, with its 12 megapixel camera and Carl Zeiss optics. More cool stuff - the film's heroine, is printed.  Too small to be positioned by hand for each frame, multiple versions of Dot were created in different poses with a 3D printer (so, presumably, files exist for you to print out your own authentic film starlet?) See more projects and how the 'Dot' film was made at Nokia or Facebook. Yet another video that won't embed

Instructables card game Stop motion

Idea for how to stop fake members from voting

Maybe voting should be accessible only to PRO members... This might be unfair to non PROers, but it's way more fair for contests... I think that there are people that open many many many fake accounts, and vote for themselves in contests. HQ knows how to stop most of them, but, unfortunately,  I'm sure that there are ones that they don't catch.  I think that a member would think twice before wasting tons of memberships on all of his/her fake accounts for voting. I think it could eliminate most of them. I doubt that they haven't thought about this before, but I'd like to hear your opinion. What do you think? :)

Video bombing.

Unless i constrain myself this will sound like one of Gordon Ramsays shows... ;-) Fu blo he. It's fung time to do something about those bloo videos that stu people are carpet bombing Instructables with. ! Please limit the possibility of posting an unlimited amount of instructables/slideshows/videos per 24 hour period. One (1) per 24 hours are quite enough for anyone that are actually doing something good and not just carpet bombing/spamming crappy videos from Metacafe to get some money. As a temporary solution maybe just banning Metacafe-videos would help remove those obnoxious spammers. Or can you also get payed by videos on Youtube/Google? Talking in friendly manner to these guys doesn't really help. It only fixes (possibly) the problem with one guy, but there will just come more and more of them all the time. (The image of Gordon is stolen from - sorry about that...)

Harrasment on Instructables

There's has been a lot of bullying around instructables lately, especially the chatroom. One person to bring up is named "adman". So all of you know(i don't like him either), he hasn't done much "hacking". Everything he does is pretty basic. The ads that come up are part of meebo even if he isn't there. The ads are what make meebo free. When everyone is randomly warned, he is just warning everyone. And when he pretends to be someone and changes the same color, the same can be done if you are a meebo member. Finally, when he makes clones, he is just opening a bunch of tabs. I do not want everyone to worry about this person. He is a bad influence and should be ignored. Don't listen to anything he says. He is mean and should not be trusted. If he logs on, block him immediately so he will not annoy you. Another thing is that some people's feeling are getting hurt because the adman is trying to pretend to be the person and says bad things. If this happens, just ignore and not say anything. Eventually, the adman should get bored and leave(i hope...). I hope you guys have a nice time at instructables and ignore the negative stuff that happens. It's just part of life. The world isn't perfect and none in the world is liked by everyone. I hope you have a nice day and treat others nicely. Happy ibling.

Stop-Motion Animation Help - Which Program to Use?

After watching Rejected (PG-13 for language, simulated gore) by Don Hertzfeldt, I was somewhat inspired, though getting inspired from a film like that might seem a bit strange. Anyway, I want to make a short film just like that: crappy, incredibly insane, and pointless, though I won't use much (if any) bad language. I have tons of paper, and yes, I understand that it will be one helluva lot of drawing. I have a camera and a tripod, I just need to know what program to use that will let me put it all together, with sound. Would Windows Movie Maker do it, or Flash? I'm on a really low budget ($0) so buying a program is out of the question. Any help would be appreciated!

A train that doesn't ever stop or slow down? Sounds ridiculous (ly efficient). This design is a pretty interesting take on the concept, though liability issues and real-world feasibility will probably keep this from ever making it past the drawing board.Link

Stop motion camera crane

Ok. I need to create a camera crane. It dosn't have to be very big since I'm using it for stop motion. Just a simple pan and tilt crane with a counterweight to off-set the camera. Now, I can make a regular one very simply using a video crane method that you can find on this site. However, this crane must do 2 things. 1. It must be able to move at incredibly small increments. Only fractions of an inch at a time. 2. The crane must be able to hold it's position in a very sturdy manner. It cannot move even in the slightest because stop-motion requires that the camera does not move at all while individual pictures are being taken. For the life of me, I can't figure it out. Traditionally, a "step motor" is used to create the individual movements for things like this. But they are incredibly expensive. I've had more luck with gears and servos, however I want to figure out the logistics before I just go buy gears individually on a website that may or may not work. Your help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Has anyone managed to run BOCHS on a PSP SLIM?

The PSP Port of bochs was apparently ported for 1.50 Firmware, and no other, Making incompatible with the modern 5XX Custom Firmware. Does anyone here have experience on this and have you gotten bochs to run and at least got past the BIOS loading part? The reason i am forced to use bochs is because it supports All os'es out there, According to my tests, bochs Should be able to Allocate up to 41.2 MB of RAM on a PSP SLIM, but i can't get bochs to start on my PSP. When i start it it gives me the traditional error(that means that it is only for firmware 1.50) So i installed LEDA It stands for something, supposedly it allows you to run most 1.50 firmware apps on 3++ Firmware. Now it starts, It slowly fades out, like perfect And then after a few seconds it exits, no error, what i suspect being wrong is a configuration file. So If anyone got it to run, At least to the Bios loading part, Keep me updated, and post a comment. Thanks ~ReCreate

Stop Hackers dead

This is interesting, So Zscaler acts like a pass/no-pass Gate.   If it were a firmware gate that only could be accessed by a dedicated keyboard then it could stop hackers dead.   Yes it would force sites to hold all their content rather then pulling this from there and that from elsewhere but NO HACKERS unless they physically take a site. What say you ?
