Thread: Moving thrugh a still image

  1. Default Moving thrugh a still image

    Hi my friends,
    I dont know if this is related to this forum or not but ihave a question about the movie "The Other Guys"
    The part that they went to a bar in the middle of the movie how did they make that part? Moving along a fixed photo? I mean its a still image but it is kind of 3D. How did they make it?
    Thank You.

    This:


    I think it's a variation of 'the matrix bullet time effect'. In other words, they set-up dozens of cameras along the bar, and took one single photo from each (simultaneously). Then they edited the photos together to create the movement, and would also have to delete some of the cameras from some shots, and finally add effects (eg. gun fire, urine, etc) and perhaps some morphing to fill spaces between the frames.

    No idea if that's correct or not; seems plausible though.
    Here's how the matrix effect was made:


    And the famous Trinity kick using the same technique:


    The matrix effect is more complex, because the cameras allow some motion from the actors during the sequence, whereas the bar scene is completely static - just one instantaneous photo required.
