Animate Your Comics and Illustrations Easily with MotionArtist

Robin Good's insight:

MotionArtist is a downloadable software for both Macs and Windows PCs which provides powerful animation capabilities to the non-expert animator, illustrator or comics designer.

With MotionArtists it is possible to capture, edit and animate existing comics and illustrations and to export the final product to most major video formats (including 1080p HD) or to HTML 5.

"MotionArtist, launched Tuesday, allows users to add movement to existing comics or create entirely new and diverse projects.

...MotionArtist was designing the simplest process for people who might not have a background in cartoons, but want to dive right in."

"Really what we've tried to do is create an animation tool for non-animators."

"In the program, users can create panels of any shape and then drop in layered images (like a Photoshop file). Then, using an intuitive point-to-point system, they can set the elements on paths and move them around within the panel.


Motion comics have grown in popularity in recent years, with popular comic book titles like X-Men making the jump to Netflix or YouTube, where they can be watched instead of read."

Shoot Your 3D Movie On-Location, Inside Another Game: The Source Filmmaker

Robin Good: The Source Filmmaker (SFM) is a story-telling movie-making ecosystem built around Valve Source Game Engine.

SFM allows the user to tap into all of scenes and components of an existing 3D game, to create, re.animate, and re-combine characters, movements and plots in any imaginable way.

"The SFM allows a storyteller to create an entire movie on location inside the video game world of Team Fortress 2. Movies exported with the SFM can be uploaded to the web or shared like any normal movie file."

Unlime most other 3D cinematographic tools which typically take care of only a part of the movie production (renderer, 2D video clip editor, a keyframer, a motion capture editor, a sound editor, etc.) the SFM is a hybrid of all these workflows merged into a single system, where you can create an entire movie by reusing assets and events from the video game world.

"Because the SFM uses the same assets as the game, anything that exists in the game can be used in the movie, and vice versa. By utilizing the hardware rendering power of a modern gaming PC, the SFM allows storytellers to work in a what-you-see-is-what-you-get environment so they can iterate in the context of what it will feel like for the final audience."

You can apply for a beta key here and install it from Steam like any other free-to-play game. Note that the beta key request requires Steam to be running on your PC.

While good stopmotion and timelapse videos can take a long time to create, there are some tools that can make the process a little easier.

Here are three stopmotion video creation tools that are worth trying.
