Thread: Moving Objects

  1. Default Moving Objects

    Is there any way I can move something in the room without strings? Either while filming or editing would be nice.

    I presume that by "without strings" you also mean:
    without engines
    without legs
    without motors
    without magnetism
    without projecting
    without explosion
    without catapulting
    or indeed without any form of motive power whatsoever?

    Probably simplest is to film the scene twice with an ABSOLUTELY STATIC camera.
    One shot is of just the room without the object.

    Attach the object to some sort of handle or other means of propulsion which, when held is totally to the side of, above or under the object from the camera's point of view.
    Now take the second shot and physically move the item how you want it to move. It doesn't matter if anyhing else is seen in the shot SO LONG AS it doesn't appear infront of the object at any point.

    In editing mask out the method of movement by using the "empty" shot.

    The key things to look out for are:
    Make sure the camera doesn not move.
    Make sure the lighting is identical in both shots.
    Beware of shadows and refelctions.

    Thanks a lot! I totaly forgot about masking. It will be a bit tedious to do it for almost every shot but that doesn't matter. Thanks again.
