pg0qzy8298 Posted November 30, 2013 Share Posted November 30, 2013 (edited) Hello, This is my first post so I hope I do it correctly and you don't mind me posting in your forum. During 2014 I would like to create 'photo a day' video of myself, similar to this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MPyoAN4FIk. I have no plans to inflict my work on the world via YouTube and the like, it is purely for my own amusement. My question is a compositional/editing one. I understand how to take the stills and create a video from them using Windows Movie Maker, not the best software but sufficient for my purposes, unless anyone has a more suitable, free, suggestion? In the link above the young ladies eyes and nose stay at a (mostly) fixed point in the frame, I find this makes for a better video when all the stills are run together. The problem I have, is, when I take stills of myself my nose and eyes are at different positions frame to frame which makes for a rather jumpy end result. Does anyone have any tips on how to remedy this, is it done when taking the shot, or in editing afterwards? The shots are taken on a small point and shoot digital camera, as the shots will be taken at various locations etc I wont be able to have a static setup with a tripod and mark on the floor to ensure the same position each time. The method I have tried it just holding the camera out in front of me at arms length and trying to get the same height each time. Is there a way to easily and quickly edit shots in Paint.NET so that the eyes and nose are at the same position in each frame for a series of photos, I'm not too bothered about all the frames being the same size or the edges lining up etc. Apologies for, what I fear is a rather basic question, but if any of you fine folks could point me in the right directions I would be most grateful. Thanks. Edited November 30, 2013 by pg0qzy8298 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
