Thread: video effect question

  1. #1

    Default video effect question

    I want to overlap a simple animation over existing video
    does anybody know of a program that has that feature/effect?
    heres a good example from a u2 music video

    at 3:25 theres animation on the singers arms
    i need a program that can do that
    or would i have to draw it manually frame by frame?
    theres gotta be an easier way right?

    Next time, if your example starts at 3:25 in the video then just post a clip from there and save me over three minutes of my time before I can help you....

    Anyway, onto the question...

    Easy enough. Assuming you have an animation pre-prepared with alpha channel. Open you editor. Place your footage on layer one. Place your animation on layer two and simply keyframe it's position.

    However, good luck doing it in your average editor. Better to use s/w better at compositting. After Effects or Shake or somethignlike that will give much better results and allow you to actually track your footage so you dn;t have to mess about with positioning the animations by hand. Also, you'll be able to blend in your footage better with something like After Effects.

    It'll need to be a well made animation to work well though. espacially against someone's arm that is always moving in 3D.

    Better to practice this technique by replacing the banner on the side of a lorry as it drive by. Exactly the same technique.

    yea sorry bout that
    it was the only ex. i could think of

    thanks for the help!
    yea key framing sounds like a hassle but my idea sounds simple

    guy starts walking sees a paper on the ground
    picks up paper
    zoom in on paper
    stick like animation starts
    zoom out on paper
    guy throws paper away

    not very original but i always wanted to try something like that
