Video to > Stop Motion Animation Look

Hey guys!

So yesterday, as I was eating breakfast, I saw an ad in my town's newspapers that invited adults to participate to an stop motion animation contest. So I went to their site and the rules were pretty simple; we had to do an image-per-image animation that lasted for 3 minutes (maximum). That made me remember the good old days when I spent 7 hours straight doing animations with my little GI Joes for only 2 minutes of animation.

So, after reading the instructions I said to myself: " Wouldn't be cool if I could just record a video in 30 fps, then bring it in AE and, with some Time Effects or by changing the frame p/s, I could "transform" this video as if it were made with a still camera (stop motion animation) "?

After several attempts, none of this worked so I decided I'd give it a go on COW. (Oh and by the way, yikesmikes, if you read this, could you send me an e-mail to my e-mail account please? - Thx.)

I wouldn't call this cheating because, after all, doesn't mean I'll use my camcorder and AE. Maybe I'll do it in the old school way. I was simply wondering if this was possible in AE and how to do it.. and, who knows, maybe your solutions will be helpful for the newcomers who searches in the COW's Archives, since I didn't found an answer in it :

Thx for your time guys!
