in concern to andrew kramer's time freeze tutorial video (VIDEO COPILOT | Professional After Effects Tutorials, Plug-ins & Pre-Keyed Stock Footage)
---is it safe to say for this to work you need a non moving bg like houses? trees in bg will destroy the effect right? also im thinking i want to have the person behind the frozen person to ctually walk in front of the frozen person. the way im thinking of doing this is once the one person freezes, now just leave the crop and nothing else. then have the second clip of the other walking around him behind the cropped frozen person and when the person walks in front of the frozen person, i would just animate a a mask on him as he walks by.
all sound good?
One last thing...
i am thinking of a scene, a long shot of a bridge from the bottom and i wanna have someone jump off it, so im planning on shoot someone pretending their falling in front of a green screen, then put then on the top of the bridge flling for the 2 second shot. im figuring with motion blur and the quickness of the shot, the person fake falling animations wont make it look too fake. does anybody have any ideas or suggestions on this?
