While the process of making a stop motion video is easy and interesting, it does require little patience. Here's a step-by-step breakdown of the process.
- Take a picture of an object in the starting position. Move the object inch by inch till you take it to its final destination, taking a photo at each stop.
- Download pictures to your computer. Next, upload them to a movie editing software like iMovie or Windows Movie Maker.
- Animate the movie by setting the time for each photo - say 3 frames a photo (about 10 photos a second).
- Add music to your movie and your movie is ready.
