Having never used dragonframe before it was a software that took me a while to get used to. Theres a lot of different features to this software which can be very daunting when first using it, made even more difficult by the fact you can’t have over a certain number of frames in each scene, meaning one long film is near impossible (or at least I haven’t figured out how to create it yet) as a result I will have to download another piece of software in order to connect the three seperate scenes.
One of my main problems was not realising that the cinematography section wouldn’t allow you to edit or play through the film. After getting used to switching between the two sections I managed to create the last two scenes in the same amount of time it took me to create the first and they are of a higher standard by far. I do now feel confident enough with the software to continue with stopframe animations. The camera and the computer at one point froze completely and for hours afterwards the software wouldnt acknowledge the existence of the camera or a connection and kept flagging up a warning message. This did make the process longer than it needed to be and appears to have impacted some of the frames.
