Post subject:  Realtime preview using Mantis for stop motion.

Hey guys,
so I am still working on my animation for a music video and thought I would post a test that I shot. It is rough but is looking good. I used my rig running Mantis to preview the shot in realtime which allowed me to tweak the camera path quickly without spending hours doing it the old way with my Arduino based rig. Once everything lined up I let Dragon Frame take over to animate it. Not bad. As I said still a little rough.

The compression on Youtube is horrible! Even in HD!

Hi Doug nice atmospheric shot did you drive the rolling road with mantis/DF . That's if it is a rolling road? Look forward to seeing finished film :D

Yep. I have one channel left on my controller for model movers and the likes. I am really pushing to get the film ready for a festival next month! Fingers crossed.

Yes - realtime preview saves you time for sure... :) I would hate to have to go back to the old hard way - it's like programming blind.
