Hi all! I think I'll be posting my Living clothes/Living shoes movies and here from now on.
Here is my newest Living Shoes video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCnClm2IglQ

I noticed some of the mistakes I made post editing (sadly had my hands/hair and foot show up in portions of it, Do'h!) But other than that, it flows together well! Now if I could find a non destructive way to make some shoes that should flex and find a way to make less noticeable stands, I think I'd be on a good course!

ANd some more from my DA gallery that I made since last time:

Wow, the video looks like it was a *lot* of work. Couple hundred shots, maybe?
For LC stuff, I could never get stop motion to look a way that made it worth the time to put together...

I've seen most of the dA stuff, but thanks for sharing here!

I'm still working on my jeans, but I need to feather the mask a lot more and cut it back. I'll repost my next WIP of that soon.

Thanks!

Yeah it took me about an hour, maybe hour and a half  to do that. I found a phonw app called Pic Pac that is Made for stop motion to be useful for this, and my first stop motion also used this app as well. I might have to look into getting the Pro version so I can upload higher quality or even alternatives.

I can understand the difficulties in doing LC, especially with all the post processing if using a model in a green screen or rigging and post processing if using some kind of rigging to make them look like they are just floating.

This is some pretty cool stuff! Stop motion is so hard, and even harder still to make look effective, but I think you did a good job here. Also I'm really digging the whole, "talking shoes" concept. Would be cool to see some videos of that type of thing. Very nice job!

Thanks! Yeah I think if you can try the Pic Pac software it's definetly helpful. The only thing I don't like about it is only the lowest quality is avaliable for the free level. But it's easy to use and shows a translucent version of the last image. Makes planning some of this easier. Of course the key is to make the movement between frames as little as possible. Iirc I think this may have consisted of at least 200 images.

I use the adobe suite to compose photos into animation (fireworks when it was around back in the day).

(btw, the gif in your icon makes the effect look pretty great, actually)

Very good start!

Unfortunately, capturing shoes walking by themselves is a very hard and pain staking effect to pull off if you want to make it look as real as possible. I think the best way is to simply use some green screen stockings, remove the green stockings using chroma key then edit frame by frame and draw the shoes in-lining detail in using some photoshop tool then obviously merge all the frames together in video editing software.

Which that would be fine if all the shoes were in sizes that fit me, but like in that video the only pair that does fit me is the Beige Guess Peeptoes  (they're a size 12). The other two were sizes 8.5 and 5.5. A large portion. Of my cast of shoes are in sizes too small to fit.

I think I largely got the technique down though. Just needs a little more refining and for stuff that should flex (think Keds, Chucks, flats and the like) a way to simulate that that's non destructive. Right now the biggest problem imo is now to find a way to have them suspended in a walking motion without a base that's too visible.

I miss Fireworks :( but my attempt to find it online helped me to get a handle on licensing software vs. buying it (which we all thought we were doing but... no)
