Stop Motion Animation

Posted on at


Stop motion animation is used to describe animation created by physically manipulating real world’s objects and photographing them one frame of film at a time to create the illusion of Movement. There are many different types of stop motion animation, usually named after the medium used to create the animation. Some animators prefers to work with puppets using clay, a plastic material, or foam for stop motion animation, a digital video or film camera is placed on a tripod. So the action can be filmed frame by frame, moving characters, objects and camera after almost every frame. Computerized motion control equipment is available to make this process easier and more precise.

Clay animation, or plasticise animation often called Claymation uses figures made of clay or a similar malleable material to create stop motion animation. The figures may have an armature or wire frame inside of them that can be manipulated to pose the figures.
