This video tutorial shows you how to make a very simple stop motion animation video using Adobe Premiere Pro CC. I believe it should be roughly the same workflow for CS4, CS5 or CS6.

The 25 images used in this tutorial can be downloaded from http://www.tengo.com.sg/2012/07/23/stop-motion-images-for-download/

Please note that the cute soundtrack and sound effects are not available as the paid license is only for myself. Just substitute with any nice music and suitable sound effects you can find on the internet.

There was a step where I resize all the frames so that the still images fit the sequence resolution as close as possible. The idea is to fit the photos which were taken at 8 megapixels into the HD video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.

Lastly, please note that I only use 5 frames per still image for 25fps (similar to 5fps) as this is a simple demonstration. To improve the smoothness of the stop motion animation, you will need to use a higher frame rate. The industry standard is generally at least 12 fps or even higher.

Hope it's helpful.
