Re: Developers/Programmers Needed! Let's create a stopmotion program!

Make a new IRC chat room just for this topic. Also let's set up a Git repository so that all of us can view the current code.

I hope this is relevant, but I made a concept of what the UI of the program could look like.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] … otostream/

A few key features:
- Large live view box.
- Magnetic vertical timeline.
- Unique masking export box in the lower left corner (drag from the timeline your background image with the support, and your foreground image into the respective boxes, press export, which will set up a masking situation in your selected photo editor).
- Onion skinning toggle next to timeline.
- Key controls orbit the place where the future logo will be placed.
- Info is displayed above timeline.
- Bottom right corner holds a box with three tabs - Capture, View and Tips - each with their own respective sections once selected.
- Bar along top in my concept is typical OS X; program needs to be able to change between a Windows and a Mac layout when running on either of the two respective platforms.

It's a pretty rough outline/placement of the program, feel free to nitpick apart the things you don't like, but I ultimately hope that my contribution helps the project as a whole. mini/smile

Now I have not been following this topic entirely, but I can give some suggestions for the Software:

-Sync your frames to an audio track manually (like in DragonFrame) in order to match the movement of the subjects to audio (for example an mp3 voice-over).

-I Have a Canon t2i and I want live-view configuration.

-I use a mac

BTY: sorry if that this info has already been mentioned.

Re: Developers/Programmers Needed! Let's create a stopmotion program!

I might be able to help some, do you have any code yet?

Some if us has some code stored on our computer, but there is no place where others can view the code.

Re: Developers/Programmers Needed! Let's create a stopmotion program!

Alright. What language are you guys using?

Re: Developers/Programmers Needed! Let's create a stopmotion program!

Java or python, I'm not sure.

Re: Developers/Programmers Needed! Let's create a stopmotion program!

Use java, it is more useful, python usually uses command windows like cmd, or the mac one. mini/lol

Re: Developers/Programmers Needed! Let's create a stopmotion program!

I'm using java I was using python for some testing cause it's a lot quicker to code. However python is very powerful and it's fairly easy to program a GUI using TKinter imports.

Re: Developers/Programmers Needed! Let's create a stopmotion program!

So it would appear this is our best option : https://github.com/
I'll just let someone with more experience in this kind of thing set it up though.
I believe it has a chat of one form or another.

So another problem is that we have to groups basically interested in helping: python and java.
We need to decide or figure something out.
Perhaps someone knows a good way to translate between the two?

And we do need to meet up or something, maybe talk with Cybercom? He is kinda the manager.

p.s. I'm partial to python.

Re: Developers/Programmers Needed! Let's create a stopmotion program!

Sorry guys, but I don't feel that I'll have much time to work on this project anymore (a combination of school, my own brickfilming needs and such), so don't expect much contribution from me coming your way. I'll try and get the revamped UI to you soonish, but that's about it. Good luck with the code - I'll still be around to suggest things every now and then mini/wink

Re: Developers/Programmers Needed! Let's create a stopmotion program!

I'm a bit of a design freak, but I think that's what most people will want to do.  But if there is something that I can do, then I'd be interested.

Re: Developers/Programmers Needed! Let's create a stopmotion program!

Also I haven't been able to come up with any logo ideas...so does anyone else have any? I can also do an animated logo that play in the splash screen if we do one.

Re: Developers/Programmers Needed! Let's create a stopmotion program!

What are we going to call the program again?

Re: Developers/Programmers Needed! Let's create a stopmotion program!

Not sure yet. Probably Motionfilmr or Brickfilmr

Re: Developers/Programmers Needed! Let's create a stopmotion program!

Sorry, but they sound terrible. I personally don't have a suggestion, but think outside of the box.

Re: Developers/Programmers Needed! Let's create a stopmotion program!

I could make a logo. I'll edit this to have a picture if you want it.
Picture for logo (Only a start.)

I don't have Skype; My mom won't let me.

No Skype! I know that some users can't have one (don't laugh). It took me a long time to get my own, too. mini/tongue

Instead, I like how github looks. But we need to think of a project name. I thought up of ReelShot Animator. (Hmm...)

Also, I need all who are in the project to email me at ber[email protected] Also, any newer members who would like to join (or if beta testing is available) email me there.  mini/sunnies

My life goes by 24fps.
Another free stopmotion program? Possibly! View here! http://www.bricksinmotion.com/forums/po … 6/#p274396

Email sent. I still think we need to have an organizing meeting to discus roles and tasks.
