NEW TUTORIAL: 3D Ledge

In this exciting new tutorial we will be keying, tracking, roto-scoping, exporting, integrating, color correcting and a lot more. This 47 minutes tutorial starts out in After Effects and covers generating the 3D building in 3D Max & Cinema 4D. No match-moving or 3D tracking required everything is done with the 2D tracker in AE. I’ve even included the 3D building for everyone to use.

You can even skip the 3D programs and build a sweet building in After Effects alone with the 3D City Tutorial.

Hmm. Interesting.


A wide variety of techniques employed as i see.
This gives me a great idea for a short

Thanks Andrew!
April 27th, 2010 @ 2:47 pm
Brilliant as always Andrew, and so appreciated! I've one question, and it concerns the relative sizes of everything you have created and used in 3-d space. I'm wondering the conclusions you have arrived at for the size of the building in 3-d; is that a relative real world size building in 3dsmax, and if so, why would one work in this way, and how that relates to where you place the street(car level) in after effects? Basically I suppose, I'm wondering how you deal with scale when it comes to compositing and creating 3-d objects, with reference also to your recent FRINGE balconty shot.

Cheers

April 27th, 2010 @ 2:48 pm
We did something likes this for a movie (check my website)
I got a lot better results for this with some tracking points. A great guy (Eric Alba, http://24liespersecond.com ) a genius in visual effects has some free tracking marks

go to

http://24liespersecond.com

and print them, he has some instructions on how to do it on black or green. I hope this helps.

I knew you were up to some great stuff to share with us as generous as you are. I just made this opening of the Forta Award 2010 that was used today and I used Optical Flares.

http://www.vimeo.com/11074227
April 27th, 2010 @ 2:56 pm
@vidvillain, Hey Sean, Great question and point. The truth is, for this scene I did not pay much attention and I just winged without much consideration. I building is not really based on a real building so one thing to consider is the window size, another idea is to use a real image as reference. There are definitely some Scale issues in this shot but you should be able to make it look good if you plan your stuff out with a little creative direction.
April 27th, 2010 @ 3:11 pm
Great, art always wins over technicalities, thats why I gave up engineering for this lark!

Mr. Andrew Kramer, the internet is an awesome piece of technology but without people like you to put brilliant content on it like these tutorials - it would be nothing. You absolutely ROCK hardcore!
April 27th, 2010 @ 5:07 pm
Great Tutorial!

May I suggest: Stewart's Root Beer works great during the "water break" portion & What's VC DRAGON?!!

Alem95
April 28th, 2010 @ 5:17 am
That tutorial treats only things that are also treated in the other tutorials (except Cinema 4D) and the final result is not so good, It seems that Sam is there not because he wants to suicide, but because he must go to the bathroom!(really)
Why don't simply put Sam on a real skycraper? We want to sse him jumping! muhahahaha! ok, i'm a little bit crazy, but that tutorial isn't exciting. That's not the Andrew Kramer i discovered two years ago, that's not the Andrew Kramer that made me good at aftereffects!
Come on, you can do better!

The part where Andrew created the shadow around 35:54 with a subtraction and add mask kind of confused me. The part where he added the two masks to the black solid, Why do you need two masks instead of just making one to represent the shadow?

April 29th, 2010 @ 12:04 am
Pardon me for asking lord Kramer, but when you goes to add Optical Flares at 44:15, a plugin called "Dragon" is clearly visible (along with quickmatte, which at this point i've given up on ever seeing)
Andrew! Whats with all the plugins that we don't know about?!
crumpy
April 29th, 2010 @ 12:35 am
Thanks for some more free knowledge, Andrew.
Lot's of plugs for Optical Flares in this one... Hopefully sales are going well.
Anyone who has not got it should get it NOW. I gave my Knoll Light Factory license to my financially broke friend and did not look back. I am so stoked on Optical Flares, it is very artistic and enjoyable to use.

Combustion? Lol, nice. Had to laugh because I use Toxik, which might be even more obscure then Combustion... anyway... Cool tutorial, though. I found your application of turning a 2D track into 3D really interesting, I'll have to try that out.

Out of curiosity, do you do any node based compositing? I find it far more easy and effective than AE, and was just curious what you think of it. I'm always amazed at what you can do with after effects! Cheers.

Very nice and helpfull tutorial. I like those one which get deeper into it. You have to think for yourself and be a bit creative on you own way. I hate those people who build a tutorial 1:1 and post "their" result on an other website and say: "Hey, look what cool things I can do with After Effects!!1".
A tutorial that shows you new things how you can work with the program and don´t give you a step by step manual are good tutorials. And this one is definitly one of those! Keep on that way Kramer!

Greetings from Germany.

hey there

Love the TUT, just a question to those of you using C4D, when you imported the track from AE, did it come in on a totally different plane, so instead of the camera running over the roofs edge, it ran up the wall, plus the distance it travels is was far.

I'm new to C4D.

What would u recomend me? my bucket is only 1.500 dollars

I have a HV30 but i couldnt get nice results and i have readed that is not a good camera for tracking because of the rolling shutter / CMOS .

I have been reading that i need a ccd sensor camera, do u know something about this one?

Hey Andrew and people from videoCopilot.
Thanks for includion C4D in this tutorial, we where working on a simmilar video like yours, but we ran into some problems, but your tutorial all cleared it for me.
This is own version http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLNYcr42QrI

For added the "on the edge" filmed part in to the C4D Render, I worked the other way around with the camera export. What I did...I added a NULL in C4D and added is in the render data for AE, so that I could attach both the hanging guy video...and the street/cars to this NULL. so once the camara moved...all would stay in place.

Anyway,
Thanks for this great tutorial, and keep up the amazing work.

Adam
May 4th, 2010 @ 2:59 am
Andrew,

Thanks to your tutorial, I finally feel like I'm understanding the concepts of 3D camera moves and basic tracking principles. I used to avoid these elements like maths at school!

I don't have the space to build a dolly, so I'm going to stand on a chair taped to a pair of skateboards to duplicate this shot. The guy that I'm filming will wear a crash helmet for the first few takes.

Just kidding.

Cheers from the UK!

Hi Andrew, I liked the tutorial. Also wanted to mention that there is a cool and helpful free Maya Script for creating buildings: KludgeCity version 0.1.7

There's also information about it in CGTuts+:

Article super, though I have not got to do everything as you had to improvise a bit )))

Another top tutorial, although, it's becoming increasingly difficult -- employing differing browers, differing RealPlayer plugins etc. -- to download tuts for future (offline) reference.

Shame.

Really great tutorial ! Love it !

One question comes to me... Can this be used in a lateral movement? I mean not on the top of the actor's head but from his profil to him facing the camera, or another camera plan...

Thanks,

Props on that one ;)

The film "LIMITLESS" used this technique, frame by frame as it seemed. Very cool and very effective visual effect.
