Animation test

Post by ffellah » Sat Oct 05, 2019 7:54 pm

This is my first animation test done with Alexandra's help. Only 31 frames over a little more than half hour this morning. Her solar nutcase tutorial is great and she is always so helpful and kind ! I know it is very rough but I will get better with practice. It is a lot of work, specially the first time, but the end result is a lot of fun !

Clear skies to all !

Thank you Jack, Martin and Maurits. At least now I understand the process, the software and the steps involved...

What a great start Franco :hamster: :bow
I would try a Barlow next time to get a bit closer in. Are you using Photoshop? if so remember to use the 'record actions' function to automate some processing and save time. Also when in the animation view part you can crop your image until you see some of the black boundaries disappear in the final animation.

Good result Franco! I suspect i've gone past the season for my sm90 now, back down to 50mm aperture for me with lower sun...

Thank you, Mark. I hope I will still use it this season, maybe for another animation, if the opportunity presents.
