making toy video

Posted 28 November 2016 - 12:29 AM

My child has taken interest in youtube videos with children playing with toys as characters. I wanted to be able to do this with my child but not sure if my camera has a record and pause option or they use a video editing program. If anyone could help me out it would be appreciated.

I think I need to use an video editing program. my camera doesnt have an pause option like certain cellphones do. Is there any free easy learning video editing programs?

You can do:
Pick a toy to use. It's easier to do a stuffed animal with no arms to start out with. If it's an action figure this it pretty much unavoidable but it won't matter because the limbs of an action figure will stay in place, unlike that of a stuffed animals.

Build a set that fits the theme. For example, build a bedroom, kitchen, living room (den), bathroom and use stuff that's on scale (like a doll stuff). You can substitute things like refrigerators by using something like a box and covering it with paper, or to make a t.v. you can use an old mirror and draw buttons and stuff on it to look like a plasma screen

After making a set, decide what you want to happen in your story. It should be simple at first. After you get better, you can do more complex movements like going through your character's daily routine. This can be fun and entertaining to watch.

Take pictures. A camera with a tripod is recommended when making a stop motion video. The camera and framing should not be moved unless you want to change the scene. This will clearly show the movements of the characters. If you want to show a slow movement, slightly move the characters. If you want them to move at regular speed, move them about a centimeter each frame. For fast movement, move the character an inch or so.

Save the pictures in your PC or laptop. Import all the pictures that you took. There should be at least 170-200 images.

Animation! Use Windows Movie Maker or other video editing software to process and edit the images. Open or drag all the images that you will use in the timeline.

Enjoy your stop motion film! Show it to your friends and family. Burn it on a DVD, put it on Youtube, or do whatever you want!
