Hello! Yes, I'd have to agree with Andrew...
There is a marked difference between shooting live action and dropping frames for a 'staccato' effect and pixilation, where an actor is manipulated frame-by-frame in the same way as a puppet in more conventional stop-motion production (as we did for the RAM project). This also isn't timelapse, as there is no incremental capture over a period of time - rather the process is live action capture, with frames removed in post-production, to produce a certain visual effect. I think the production process is key to classifying the type of animated movement.
I reckon we should keep it up here though, as an example of what we maintain *isn't* pixilation or timelapse :)

I wouldn't call this pixilation. I would categorize it as animation either, but I know some people that might disagree. You could argue for hours on the definition of animation especially today with the amazing realistic visual effects being created for use in live-action films. However, this video was not created using stop-motion so I don't see why it should be shown on this website. Sorry I am a pixilation nerd and there is no way this falls into the category of pixilation.

Julia showed me this video of Beyonce and said it falls into the category of animation because frames have been dropped in post production. As a newbie would this count as pixilation or would you have to capture each frame singly as per RAM project?
