Lighting in stop motion, what to use


hi everybody let’s talk about light because light is even more important than a good camera there are three main sources of light that we can use in stop-motion pressin incandescent and let’s what you really want from asta motion light is continuity into intensity or rightness and into color what I really mean is that your light must be stable during all your shutter movie if not you’ll have flicker a little bit of flicker it’s okay it’s more cinematic but a lot will hurt your eyes you also want to have as much control as you can of your light to direct the beam and to change the properties of your life [Music] but let’s be practical you can use any red sauce that you have in fact slow motion for its smaller scale needs a lot of invention and a lot of times we have to use the mastic lights so as you can see we have a bunch of different kind of clumps but all of them can be post and this is something that it’s very interesting to detect light and also that you can clamp on the table so when we start that every time we saw a lamp that could be useful we just bought it and now we have a bunch of them the main difference between those and professional lights it’s the accuracy and control of the light of course the price is not the same so we started making movies with Kerr lamps small fluorescents an illusion garden lights [Music] looking at the past I remembered this project where we had on Lincoln lesson lamps and we wanted to burn the background into pure white so we started to add more and more lights till the point of about 12 lightbulbs at that crazy point the plastic thing was near to the melting point burning your fingers at 58 degrees when you made it in pain and that’s how you learn from your mistakes back to the mention thing depending on your project you will need little bulbs LEDs and a small lamp to fit a special needs so it’s good to know what you can use you will always deal with Flickr so my recommendation is to test its new light UI to see how it works [Music] lately I’ve been using these LED light bulbs and I think that they are more stable than incandescent ones they are good for a spot direct and hard light so in a very cool – Al’s own they have a lot of power so great little devices and great price [Music] with all that being said I will show you the light that we have in the studio and why we use them [Music] [Music] this light the person want it’s the only one that it’s custom-made we will this time ago and all the components are professional so I’m sure that everything it’s super accurate it looks a little bit fun math but it works fantastic and it’s cheaper than anyone if you are interested into making one of these please leave a like and I will consider making a tutorial specific on all the components on this light I hope you like this video thanks for watching and see you next time [Music]

  3. Excellent video as always Edu. 👍🏻 Loving some of your techniques. I’m blessed with what I can use. As a musical theatre technician. I have lots of lights to choose from. But… nothing beats a desk lamp and an LED bulb 💡

  4. This is great. Been waiting for a more in depth video on lighting, thanks for sharing. Would love if you made a tutorial video on how to make light!

  5. If you have flicker on just a few frames you can always colour correct those frames, there are also some plugins for deflicker like DEFlicker from RE:Vision Effects and STX Deflicker in Reactor for Fusion and Resolve, some plugins can be expensive but can save some reshoot time.
