NEW TUTORIAL: Animating a Still

In this tutorial inject life into a still image by creating a 3d-looking camera movement and animate the movement of the smoke. We will also add realistic camera jitter and simulate a rack focus with dirt on the lens.

This tutorial was based on this recent test video that everyone seemed interested in so I put together this tutorial with all of my findings. Enjoy!

Hi, good stuff. A while ago I did a 2d to 3d in AE. What I did is modelled a heart in Zbrush and then rendered and composited in PS with multiple passes to give it a real look. The heart was then totally 2d. Then in AE I dropped the 2d render into the comp and used the depth map (of the same model, grabbed from zbrush) to control the blur amount in z-space, thereby simulating a DOF effect on a 2d image (actually, used the same map for the blur effect on the particles). Have a look here:

There is no DOF enabled here.

I'm having issues with the paralax effect. I'm using CS5 (not that I believe that is part of the issue). I can adjust the first two corners for the effect, but when I move ahead in the scene 4 seconds and hit reset and attempt to move the two corners opposite of the ones I modified there is no change made in the animation. The animation is applied to the first 5 frames or so, but not from keyframe to keyframe... I love your tutorials, and this is the only issue I have ever faced. I thank you for all the work you do!

Hi Andrew, Gopal is right, you have to reply to this message. The video is here, the Ultra Tech Cement http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7V1LoJt7IZw&feature=related .

Hi, the other day few of my friends visited an old scary palace in India. He took a few snaps over there. i have created a small video combining many photos together, making it wider and animating using the same technique as here. the corner pin. there were no cameras used.i have used action essentials dust, optical flares and zaxwerks 3d flags as well. and yes the sound is from one of your projects- Payment Plan.

"My comment/suggestion would be to add at helicopter sound that is not in motion. When I watch the video and hear the doppler effect of the helicopter and I’m watching a stationary camera position it seems out of place."

Please don't post such garbage. When someone gives you access to tips and tricks that are used in the industry for FREE...please, please, please, please, don't give in to the urge to critique his work. I don't want people like you to be the reason Mr. Kramer ends up deciding to charge for his tutorials.

Sorry for the rant...the comment just seemed out of line for so many reasons.

Pure speculation on my part, but Dragon could be related to a 2D fluid simulator such as Turbulence2D for creating fire and smoke. Dragon = fire. Of course, I'm probably wrong, but it's fun to guess.
