PrPro can do Stop-Motion nicely.
- The first choice to make will be the Duration of the stills. I have used between 03 and 10 Frames, depending on the "feel" that you want.
- Set the Duration in Edit>Preferences
- While there, set the Transition Duration to about 1/2 of the Stills Duration chosen. Again, a bit of experimentation will pay off.
- Choose Cross-Dissolve as the default Transition
- I'd Scale the Still Images to match your Sequence (here, if no Video is used, it would be per your output) Frame Size to keep overhead down
- Number your Still Image sequentially
- Import the Still Images
- Check that the order is in sequence, say ____0001 through ____9999
- Select them in Project Panel
- Automate to Sequence and check the settings
Hope that helps, and I would work with small batches of images first, just to get things like Duration and Transition Duration where you, and the client, want them to be.
sounds fantastic, now comes the hard part, trying to draw a proper animation : )
Yes, once you have the "edit plan," with a little testing complete, the actual animation IS the hard part.
