After doing this experiment on stop motion i realised that each images would be a single frame so for 1 second of animation i would need to have 25 images if i am working with 25fps. I also figured out that if i didn’t have enough frames for a second i could use the time stretch tool in after effects to get the length i want. As i am using stop motion, the footage would be choppy anyway so the time stretch wouldn’t make the footage look too jumpy.
For each separate movement for the reading namaz, i would need at least 12-13 images. This then being time stretched would be 24-26 frames, which would give me 1 second of footage. The following video has.t been time stretched. this was just a experiment on how it would look at the normal speed with all the separate movements put in one sequence.
