Set up your camera and lights and play around with the starting positions of your figures until you’re happy with the framing and lighting.
You’ll want the camera settings, such as ISO and aperture, to remain static. Automatic adjustments made by the camera, such as adjusting to changing light, can lead to frames having a different look and feel.
Lastly, claymation requires a slower frame rate than traditional films. Choose what frame rate you want to shoot at depending on how smooth you want your picture to look. Aim for somewhere between 12 and 24 frames-per-second (fps).
Once you’re happy, hit record.
