Video question

Here's a video production question: if I want to film a comic strip, and zoom in on a frame and move between frames, how can I do it so it looks smooth and professional?

If you have enough money for a steady cam that would be ideal. Other wise you could use a tripod with a fluid swivel head. Be very slow cause you can speed it up in post.

There's quite a few ways to do this and many variables. I'll show you next time I over.

I'm no video producer, but I'd be using a high res scan of the whole comic strip and then panning and scanning within the video software.

I would take individual shots or scans of each frame and then use "slide show" software like Proshow Gold to produce the show with transitions between each frame. You can download a trial version of Proshow to try this.

Thanks, guys.

One of the points is to show that the drawings are not separate, they are juxtaposed, an essential element in comics.

Adobe AfterEffects would be the way to go, but it is expensive.
