A Handy Hassle-Free Stop Motion Look


This tutorial will show you how to fake the look of a low budget or homemade stop motion animation using 3dsmax and after effects. No plug-ins are needed.

You can find a real world example of this such effect here or here.

We will simulate the things that give a away an old fashioned stop motion animation which are:

  • Poor planning (use of lienar curves)
  • Variable frame rate (Choppy, not smooth motion)
  • Light and camera variations due to budging or moving of the camera inadvertently or without the use of rails.
