In the case of making a stop motion animation, you should fix the camera securely to tripod. Also, it may be happen troubles such as kicking a tripod by mistake during shooting. it is necessary to fix the tripod not to move by a little kicking. I introduce how to fix tripod.
It is a commonly used method when shooting in the studio. Fix all three legs of the tripod to the floor with tape. At this time, so as not to create a gap between the tripod and the tape, tightly close it and stop it. If you shoot at house. I do not recommend it. Because the floor may be damaged.
If it is difficult to use the tape on the floor, use a net (stone bag) that puts a weight under the tripod. Tripod become heavy and not to move.
Inside the stone bag we put weights such as iron arrays or big stones picked up outside or bricks or plastic bottles containing water etc. This method don’t damage floor than tape fixing. In the case of a soft floor, if you leave it for days, The floor may get dent, so do not forget to leave the weight unless you need it.
