    I think you can do that. Film an empty glass and then film it full. Do not move the glass during fill, it has to be in exactly the same position as the empty. Put the two clips on the time line and put in a "wipe upward" transition. This is not the only way but probably the easiest.

    Have fun.

    Not coinvinced about that idea. I don;t think it will look convincing enough to work personally. With a vertical wipe between the shots you simply will not get a 'surface' to the water as the level rises.

    Alan, It's not the best way I know but Simon is an absolute beginner and I didn't want to overwhelm him with to much jargon etc. If you can think of an easy way for him to do it I'm sure he would be grateful. I'm not into special FX so my knowledge is very limited in these matters.

    Simon, Try to put a lamp near the object out of shot so you are not so dependent on sun light.

    How about stop motion?

    Use a stills camera on a tripod, take a series of stills (25 if you want your glass to fill over 1 second) and each still add a few drops of water from a jug: note if you use a jug with cc or Fl Oz calibrations on it you can guarantee to add the same amount each time. You just need to know how many cc of liquid fill the glass and then divide that by 25)

    Now import the stills into your NLE as a sequence - I'm sure Vagas will allow that, and hey presto, a realistic filling glass. No editing FX used!

    Thanks

    I don't really understand what you are saying, can you simplify the language?

    I'm only 15 years old and english is not my native language that is why i don't understand all in your post :P
