I had been editing throughout the weeks anyway, so the last few days when we all viewed the rough cut were not as pressing as we once thought. I had shown May what I had edited together, after exporting all the files from Stop Motion Pro 7, and we all agreed that the layout (which was still very close to the original animatic) was just what we wanted.
|I used my own Magix Movie Edit Pro software to edit the animation together as all the exported files were saved as WMV files. It still exported the final film in the format we wanted and kept the quality also.|
|Rig removal was a new technique we used in this animation. I went through each individual frame (on a couple of sequences) and painted out any mistakes that were made, for example, any branches that had been moved whilst animating.|
