Shot 01 of ??. This is one of the reasons I love using Element 3D in After Effects. I can animate the camera with depth of field and motion blur in real time. In 3dsmax with Vray, it looks a little better but takes ages to render each frame.
So I’ve been handed a bunch of shots that are quite difficult to key and track for various reasons, this is one of them. Uneven greenscreen (over exposed, orange cast from lights and wrinkled) green spill/reflections and of course the biggest issue, compression artifacts from a canon dslr.
So far I’ve roughly keyed parts, you can’t tell from the stills but it’s an 8 second shot with quite a bit of camera movement. There is also a camera operator who creeps in and out (to the right) during the shot.
Playing with Particular. I was trying to make it a little more tree-like but I couldn’t get more than 10million particles. I probably could if I had a much shorter particle life but I wanted the long decay, like the piano notes.
I might go back and make it for the whole piece of music.
