    After skipping on all of the renegades figures, I picked up Storm shadow..the 30th anniversary version.

    its FREAKING FLAWLESS. Best damn action figure made.

    So I made my 1st attempt at stop motion. I will redo it, adding captions and panning.

    Check it out! and thanks for watching

    Framerate could be a bit faster so it flows better and more pictures could have been taken to add in more movement.

    Other than that, good try.

    Good effort. And I agree with the poster above that the framerate have to be a lot faster for it to be "in motion". And a lot more intermediate photos have to be taken to allow movement fluidity.

    Right now, I feel it is just a slideshow of a series of photos.

    But all in all, it is a good first take.

    umm...its not really stop motion because there is no motion, its just pictures of figureines in different positions, there is no "motion" to it

    Agree with the above. Just seemed like still pictures in a slide show. A lot more pictures need to be between the ones shown with a frame rate of at least 4 different pics per second.

    I agree, but nice attempt, I probably wouldn't do any better on my first try either. I"ll look forward to seeing you improve your quality :)

    That's a slide show of sequential art, not a stop motion.

    Not stop motion. add in a few hundred more pictures to get a decent framerate.
