How to get the stop motion look in After Effects

Stop motion is an animation technique that physically manipulates an object so that it appears to move on its own. The object is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a continuous sequence, as seen here in an early stop motion film.

Getting that awesome stop motion look in Adobe After Effects

Voyage Dans La Lune (A Trip to the Moon) (1902)

To get a that awesome stop motion look effect in After Effects. You can time remap a comp with the following Expression for the Time Remap:

n=2; // Play every 2 frames
m=2; // Play each frame twice
f=timeToFrames(timeRemap);
p=Math.floor(f/2);
framesToTime(p*n);

This can be used to avoid for example your Puppet Tool animation to be too smooth looking!

You can also tweak the expression by changing n and m values, to for example play every 3 frames and play each frame 3 times.

Good Luck with your stop motion style project!
