Castle in Arizona Desert “Making of”

November 20, 2010 Leave a comment

This is my second test of Adobe After Effects and I’m quite pleased. The horizon is not as clean however, and I had to paint out a speed limit sign (you can still see the bottom of it if you look closely) but the 2d track worked very nicely. I also painted out some trees and low hills and added an artificial horizon to blend things more neatly (still need to work on that- you can see how it’s all fuzzy where the ground meets the sky).

This video was taken at the same place as the last video. It’s just a boring road somewhere in the desert. It ain’t boring no more!


After Effects Test Drive

Here is my first test of Adobe After Effects. The video is a vfx breakdown of a simple sky replacement I performed. The footage is of the superstition mountains near my home. I’m very pleased with how it turned out considering the low resolution of the camera that I used.

This shot basically called for a simple 2d track with a color key for the sky and a minimal amount of masking. There are still a few tiny artifacts left over if you look closely but they’re not very noticeable. The lens flare was something of an after thought but it really helps hide the fact that the video was filmed in the middle of the day.

Experiments in Electricity

Here is a screen capture from an animation I’ve made. It’s from a simple electricity setup I did in blender using particles represented as paths (not hair particles mind you) and a texture field applied to a moving empty object.

Here is a short film that was shot and animated by me with my humble means for a school project.  It was done using a green screen and Blender3d.  Even though the assignment had nothing to do with computer animation, it was still fun to do.

Here it is:
