Shooting Star : The Wish
Alfie's latest video...
Effects in Hitfilm Pro 4 and, this time, most of the editing as well.
We could have got the effects a lot better but wasn't quite sure what was needed. .
We used the Day for Night tips from @HitfilmSensei fantastic tutorial (many thanks) but not 100% sure we got the colour and shading right.
<edit> Just realised the crickets chirping was missed off the final video... arrghhh. Helped so much with the illusion of night.
The shooting star is a lightsword. It looked better than anything else we tried. The landing uses the Oil fire preset effect. which is a bit lazy but looks alright
It's the landing that we probably should have done some more work on but it was REALLY difficult. Tried to add some camera shake but it didn't look too good. Tried to blend the rock into the background, make it glow more red rather than just a few flames and have it seem more embedded in the ground.
Any pointer would be much appreciated.
