I haven't created much lately, as work has been completely insane for the last month (and will continue to be insane for a while longer), but I wanted to make a Halloween clip, so here it is:https://vimeo.com/77103483
Did you model and texture everthing in the scene?
The abandoned church is a free model that I found. The tombstones are photos of two 3 inch high toy tombstones that I have. I masked them, duplicated them and then made the planes 3d and placed them in the 3d space.
Wahoo! Happy to see that the Halloween projects are starting to arrive Love your Happy Halloween clip - the way that you placed the models into the 3D plane worked really well. Personal opinion is that I would have left the eyes out, but I really liked the feel of it overall. And WHAT THE HECK is that thing? Was this something you're sharing or something you created yourself? I was expecting something to jump out, but actually that's creepier....
Thanks!Yep, I made that video. I actually made it for the "monster challenge" on filmriot. Its their current Monday challenge.My friend went to the end of the hallways and crawled up towards the camera a few times. Then I masked out parts of her body and combined two sets of her arms together. There was a clean image that I layered under the video. I'm glad you could see it. It was a struggle to get that balance of "hard to see and make out what it is" and not seeing it at all.
Nice job Null Unit. That looks really good.
Cool.Batkid will take care of that UFO problem. heh
Yep, I'm sure he will!
That UFO shot looks pretty cool! What stuck out to me was that the edge of the 3D model was too soft to be believable in that scene. Every other object in the scene had hard edges, so the soft edge really kills the realism a bit.
Thanks! Interesting... I like to use Light Wrap on 3d models because it seems to help blend them into the scene, but I see what you mean by how it softens the edges. I'll try taking that effect off.
Did you use the video or still frame from the vid to create the reflection on the bottom?I mean- WOW! Where did you see that? Lucky you had your camera with you! )
That was a good way to use the Anamorphic Filter Null Unit.Good luck
Null - for light wrap, try having quite a large radius but a low opacity. That way you get the effect but without it softening the edges as much.Also, do you have a link to the temple 3D model you used a few pages back? I'm trying to find something similar to use in an upcoming tutorial and am not having much luck.
If you need a simple model like a temple, I could probably make one for you fairly quickly if you can't find one you like.
Looks great. Only real feedback I have at this point is that the yellow seems a little too bold and solid. Feels computer generated rather than something you might actually film.
The funny thing is that I do want the effect to look digital, but in a better way than the previous attempt. Here is an updated look. I changed the colors and added some Derez effect. Any suggestions from anyone? I'm doing a Tron short (based on the 1980's film), but I want to depict things that haven't been seen in the movie.https://vimeo.com/82072395
