From the new rig (not that it makes that much difference to the view):
I've made a new rig piece to make it easier to put together, but, having gone through the convoluted process of conceptualisation, planning, sketching, 3D implementation and production through powdered resin sintering, I just can't be bothered to lace it all up. Perhaps I should have made something to help me get off my arse.
Here's the new KAP rig, 3D printed and working very well indeed. The hangups are nice and light and really easy to use.
And here's the whole kit together:
The only down side is that, as I could have predicted, I'm going to have to do another version with the sticks poking out the top, rather than the bottom, at it tends to twist up the picavet lines when it's packed away.
Did the house as a test the other day and it came out ok. Just need to get back in to the swing of angling the camera right.
We're going on holiday soon and it seemed like a good idea to revamp the collapsible KAP rig I've been toting round for years.
There's a simple model that the poles go in and, first in the video, there's a slightly more elaborate one, with which you can store the poles when transporting the rig. I'll do pictures when it arrives.
There's also new hangups - ditto with the images.
Ninja Warriors are excellent at doing up seat belts (although this video fails to demonstrate that), so that's why I've picked a Ninja Warrior to be the guy who shows people how to do up seat belts in the new aircraft safety video that I'm making at work.
So I got to making another spinner, this time with a stepper motor and sticking images from After Effects on the platter and filming them with a bright light and a high shutter speed, so that they work like a zoetrope of the olden days. Turned out nice:
And here's the images that made two of the animations:
