    Stop-motion with camera?

    drduckmakr

      I have a school project where I need to animate a stop-motion video. We used a Canon 7D to take pictures and I imported them in lightroom. What I need to do now is take all of these frames and put them together to make the video. I tried manually doing it, but it came out all shaky. There has to be an easier way then to manually do it like that.

       

      Please help

      Thanks

          I'm guessing that the jerkiness is based on the camera's moving from one photo to the next. While Flash has an onion-skin function for the timeline, aligning a lot of imported photos will be a long and painful process. Flash isn't really the right tool for this sort of thing. Photoshop, on the other hand, has a crop and straighten photos function that will organize all of your photos while you sit and sip your coffee. It's in the File... Automate... menu. When you have the photos aligned and cropped, you can then export a video file straight from Photoshop.
