Thread: Different Angled Image Panning?

  1. #1

    Question Different Angled Image Panning?

    How do they get this 3D effect with a flat image? Some sort of motion track panning with an axis? Can anyone tell me where to start with this or what it is called? You have to go into the video about a minute before they start lightly using the affect.

    That's right, the subtle motion in and out helps as well as the movement around.

    That's it? Just zoom in and out and pan around? There isn't an affect or plug-in that helps you get more of a side view?

    There may be some clever contrast changes as well but basically thats it. I don't know what your seeing but I'm just seeing moving around a picture of the moons surface. Don't get me wrong it's been done very well it's not just random stuff. It's been put together with some skill to give it a 3D feel. May be they used Google moon.

    Hmm, I will have to get a better example I just happened to be watching that incredible documentary and noticed the POV. Maybe I am leaning more toward a CGI

    It's possible to shift the image which makes a flat plane look like it's 3D. What you need to do is use some distortion filter that lets you move the corners around, such as corner pin in After Effects. Basically imagine that these slashes are the square image at the start of the sequence
    Code:
      ___
     /   /
    /___/
    and then like this at the end of the sequence
    Code:
      ____
     \   \
      \___\
    It will make it look as if the 2D image is 3D, filmed from a plane or something. If you don't have a program that can distort an image like this (does Virtual Dub have a filter for it I wonder?), then you could use a free 3D modeling and animation program called Anim8or. Simply make a flat plane, apply your image as the texture, and move the camera whichever way you want in 3D space for the panning and flying about.

    It's very simple to move images in this way in Vegas. Track Motion - 3D Source Alpha. Simples.

    Hmm, thanks I will have to play with it! I hate using Adobe After Effects, something about a double render scares me with quality loss.
