    Hi peeps!!

    Just thought you folks might be interested to see my first attempt at a TF stop-motion animation. Hope this works!!

    Sorry about it being jerky - i didn't have a tripod handy. I used Animation Studio (part of Paint Shop Pro), and the animation is running at 10 frames per second. Flle free to let me know what you think, but be gentle!! :D

    great job Uncle Joe! In fact, i think the handheld effect adds coolness to the animation

    Will borrow a tripod of someone and redo this animation. Thanx for the comments anyway!
    Was thinking of doing a longer and slightly more complicated TF animation eventually, but will probably work up to that, instead of jumping in straight away.. hehehe

    considering you didn't use a tripod it's damn good.

    Wow. He really does just fall over and call it an alt mode. I didn't believe it.

    You're doing good work.

    That's neat man, very impressive for a first attempt. A tripod will kill the vibrations (duh, you knew that) but it still looks pretty neat with it. Your speed is alot more faster and better than what my old cam did (my new one does'nt do stop motion, Boo)
    You can get cheapo tripods from $10 -25 at Target, Best Buy etc. Or a book will work hehe

    Here's some old ones I did, may give ya some ideas
