I have been looking for a forum like this for ages and finally I think I have found it
I have been video editing for a while now (about a year) but my machine has been my limiting factor. I have now got a new PC and I can run Adobe Premiere and After Effects so the only thing stopping me is my knowledge of these programs and I guess my imagination.
I have been using a number of tutorials from videocopilot and I have come up with a couple of ideas myself but not sure how to make them in to reality, and this is where I hope you are able to help.
Im sure you have seen the tutorial about how to zoom out from a city and stop when your in outer space, looking back at earth. If you haven't then this is the tutorial I am using : Video Copilot Video Tutorial
Now, what I want to do is start the video focused on a person sitting in an office, day dreaming, and then zoom in on their eye and then replace their pupil with the earth and then zoom in on a location.
This giving the impression that this is what they are dreaming of. Does that make sense?
I have the earth zoom thing working, all be it round the wrong way (zooming out from earth rather than zoomig in on earth).
Should I just use a still image of someones face and zoom in to the eye or should I video someones face and zoom in with the camera?
How would I go about replacing the pupil with earth? Some sort of transparency?
I am sure this wont be the last question I ask but I hope, over time, I will be able to help others who are at the same stage I am just now.
