Eagle Animation: The animation software by BàB!

By 4maxou4 (Jun. 10, 2019)



Hello!

Few days ago, a first version of Eagle Animation was shared on our social media.

Eagle Animation is a software designed by our dear @maxou44! It has a whole bunch of features that will make your shooting easier while improving your animation!

Indeed, with Eagle Animation, you can: take your pictures directly from your computer , look at the result of your animation while shooting or even compare easily each image of your animation thanks to the onion skinning!



Currently, Eagle Animation only works with a webcam and has some bugs, but many updates are to be expected!

You can download Eagle Animation Version 1.1 here !

We will notify you of updates and answer all your questions in comments.
Tell us what you think!

I will probably not use them due to shooting with a DSLR, but that is amazing for all webcam-users!

And maybe, one day I will be able to use it too

Really cool that you made an animation software! I personally will probably not use it because I shoot with a DSLR and a cable release but I think this will be really useful to a lot of people!

I will give it a try. I just downloaded a lot of new software, so I think I will just try some new stop-motion software too.

Great work! Will be sure to give it a proper test drive next month.

I downloaded the setup-file and started the program. But apparently the software can't recognice my camera.

It only works with webcam at the moment

I used my webcam, but the webcam had issues, connecting to my pc, but now it works again. I will review it after my next project.

So yesterday I recorded about 140 pictures for a project with Eagle Animation.
Here is my first impression:
(I worked with my Logitech c920 hd pro webcam on it) (Usually I used qstopmotion)

Cons (-

- there is no way to see in which quality an image is taken. I found out it was best possible quality for my webcam after I shot the whole thing. (gladly)
- the setting-button just doesn't work.
- there is no way to adjust the focus of the camera (I had to close eagle animation everytime to adjust the focus on another program for this)
- there is no way to disconnect the camera from EagleAnimation, once it started. Whenever you have to use another program on this camera (like adjusting the brightness, recapture the focus, use whitecorrection etc...) you have to completely shut down EagleAnimation in order to let another program modify the camera settings
- when projects are named, the folders in which the images are saved are still "untitled-1, untitled-2, untitled-3...."
- there is no way to look in the program for which pathway is used to store the images

Pros (+

+The program AUTOMATICALLY saves every image and doesnt ask for where or whether it should bother to save something at all. It just SAVES it anyway. (Thank god!)
+The onion skinning tool is smoothly adjustable at which visibility you want to see the previous image
+You can tell the program in which framerate you want your preview to be shown and it works flawless
+You don't have to disconnect your camera to use the preview function

When I use it again, I will write down further experiences.

Thanks for this great feedback, I will put your notes in the roadmap !

In the future, the settings page will allow you to change the directory folder and the camera quality, by default it's saved in [USERFOLDER]/EagleAnimation and the quality is the best quality possible

What software do you use to configure your camera ? In the future I would like to allow the camera configuration inside the software

The name of the folder is generated when you create the project, if you rename it after, the folder isn't renamed

I use the "Logitech Webcam software". (Yeah, that thing is actually named just like this.) But also my previus software qstopmotion cannot adjust the camera settings (But can disconnect the camera)

The project is created as soon, as you click on it?
