Who does stop motion animation here? If so, what do you do for sound?

I want to add music and sound effects to a short Transformers film I'm making (sample attached), and I want to do it in a way that both evokes the feel of the G1 cartoon and respects copyright right and fair use laws. Anyone have any experience with that?

+Aarron Thimke - No, it's not for money, it's just for fun. I guess it's one of those "technically they could sue you, but in practice they won't because it actually benefits their brand" kind of things.

That video was made at 10 fps. It's a good balance between what I have time/patience to photograph and what looks reasonably smooth. I also tried 24 fps (too time-consuming) and 5 fps (too jerky).

A Taiwanese doctor uses Google Translate to communicate with a patient who speaks only Persian.

One step closer to the Star Trek universal communicator...

Completely random: in DuoLingo, the picture for "boss" is a gold Seeker (Sunstorm?). No idea why.

There's a couple of discussions about why "what happened to the dinosaurs" is returning a religious result. I can't comment on that, but I just wanted to point out that biased answers can go both ways.

What a bunch of weirdos.

(I'm referring to the members of Scotland Yard, of course.)

Bravo to Shauna Hunt for taking a stand, and CityNews and Hydro One for supporting her.
​A social media firestorm touched off by a female TV reporter who fought back against sexually explicit taunts hurled by several soccer fans has cost one Toronto engineer his job.

I'm surprised by how densely populated the region is, and seeing a flyover of the inhabited areas really brings this home.

This is much better than Michael Bay.
 
Awesome!! The best Transformers movie is a 15-minute toy battle.

Introduction
This is my personal account and any posts or comments I make using it reflect my own opinion, and do not represent my employer or anyone else.

I speak English, 廣東話, فارسی, and  , and can read Pāḷi, संस्कृत, and a smattering of other languages.

I have graduate degrees in electrical engineering and computer science. I'm also a dropout from school. Yes, it's possible to have graduate degrees and still be a dropout. That's just how awesome I am.

I used to teach logic and I'm writing a book on it.  I try very hard not to argue with people online (what's that saying again about wrestling with pigs?), but if you argue with me, I claim the right to use your argument as a textbook example of poor reasoning. 

My view of religion is an academic one which is purely evidence-based. What I know about religion, I learned from university professors and textbooks used in university courses. Most popular books on religion (both apologetics literature and anti-religious screeds) are full of factual and logical errors. If your view of religion differs from mine, instead of wasting your time trying to convert me, I suggest you write up your findings and get it published in a peer-reviewed academic journal in religious studies. Otherwise, I'm going to stick with the evidence as reviewed and interpreted by professional experts.
