Stop Motion Animation - Monkey Jam How to Guide

author avatar

Created by

Here is a 'how to' guide for stop motion animation using monkey jam. Monkeyjam is a free software download, all you need are some cheap webcams. I use this to guide the students. It covers all the aspects needed to make a simple animation, and a trouble shooting guide. I have provided it as a powerpoint and a pdf for convenience. The first 2 slides are very specific to setting up our network and a specific project we were completing, feel free to delete and add your own. I had to make each slide of the powerpoint a single image as every computer opens it differently. Happy animating!
