GBDeflicker plugin for after effects does the trick

The flickering you are talking about comes because you have chosen a too narrow aperture. Normally you can completely eliminate the flickering by choosing a wider aperture than f/8. The reason is simple: The lenses are no longer controlled by a physical aperture ring. Today it's the camera's job to set the aperture, and if you choose a f-number higher than ...

You should try VirtualDUB with the MSU deflicker plug-in. It's totally free and work better than other software I've tried. You don't have to tweak any settings, it's working directly. It's available for Windows.

Likely the best solution is take your frames into a video editor, set the still pix time to about 0.23 sec for each shot as you indicated you wanted to show 150 frames in 35 seconds. 35 / 150 = 0.233333333 Set your project properties to 720p, (720 x 1280 progressive) As you have 2:1 aspect ratio there will be some letter boxing. Or a better match maybe to ...

I'm not sure you need a better camera for this. since you are downgrading the images to a pretty low quality anyway. The secret to good green screen photography is in the lighting more than in the camera. You need to light the background as evenly as possible, and use a background color that is not present in the subject's clothing. In your example blue ...

To ease in the alignment of the photos, you could use something like Anazi Stop Motion Animator. It has an "Onion Skin" feature that allows you to see two different frames at the same time to help in aligning them. You may find some good advice on how to use this software or what software others are using for this by searching for some stop animation ...

You could even shoot way higher res than 1920x1080 if you put the camera in stills mode and shoot timelapse, say 5fps, which is what I'd expect this playback speed it (6 times quicker than realtime, at 30fps, although you could easily playback at 24fps too)... Things to watch out for here would be lens distortion, ie a reasonably wide lens would produce ...

Erase and redraw If you play the first video frame by frame (by pausing the video and pressing the left or right key) you see that moving objects are erased and redrawn again and again. The line properties (thickness, straightness) change a little bit between frames, hinting that the line is redrawn each time (best seen at 0:45). Camera motion About the ...

One frame at a time. Many film cameras (as opposed to video cameras) will allow the creator to shoot a single frame of film. The camera is set up on a tripod, pointing at countertop with the Quest Bar, strawberries, and peanuts on it. The filmmaker shoots one frame of film. Then he/she moves the Quest Bar a couple millimeters to the right. Then shoots ...

This is most likely a problem related to the app you are using to create/view these stop-motion videos. If you have portrait-orientated pictures, creating a video accordingly is simply a matter of setting the right video dimensions (i.e. video width and height in pixels); basically every video editing software allows you to set this manually or choose from a ...

Well in that case you would export the video from VideoScribe and then edit it together with your other video material in an video editing program (also referred to as NLE). Quite straight forward process, how you do this step by step depends on the video editing software you want to use. There is the free Lightworks and commercial solutions like Adobe ...

You can use any non-linear video editor to make this, but you are in for a lot of manual work. Time posterizing (or video strobe) is mentioned which can give you that "stop" effect, but it will not take care of the walk-cycle. For that you need to manually go in and choose each frame. My suggestion would be to take the video sequences you need, go through ...

The constant lighting you are referring to is not enough. Did you lock down the camera exposure? white balance? Focus? If any of these items are left in auto mode on your camera, your going to get some kind of uneven variance in light. What kind of light are you using? Since you are want a shallow depth of field and are achieving this with a short exposure ...
