Semi-Transparent Keying

I’ve been experimenting with some advanced chroma keying methods to specifically deal with reflections and subtle details like this car plate.

Often times we use keylight to get rid of everything that is green but in some cases we want to keep some of the reflections to make a shot more realistic. Some of these tips are quite noteworthy because the footage being used is from a Canon 5D which can be particularly noisy due to compression artifacts. Pulling a good key is already challenging enough but leaving in small details without flicker is even more problematic. I think I have figured out a few good methods and we even filmed another behind the scenes video to show how we setup the shots. Look for the video and tutorial soon.

Snow Particles

After the Flour Fusion experiment I began testing the footage in some of my after effects projects and found them to be quite useful and interesting. So later this week, I’ve decided to post some Free HD clips for everyone to try.

This comp was created using some snow images placed in 3D space. Then the snow particles were comped over the entire screen in 2D. I’m sure with a little more work the particles could be in 3D space as well by making multiple copies. You could even use particular to create some additional 3D particles to really sell the depth… so many ideas. How will you use the clips?

Flour Fusion: Real Particles

Creating particles in After Effects is awesome! We have all used Particular and Particle world but why not combine those particles with some real ones! Sometimes you need to create elements that are so complex and organic that you are better off taking out the camera and making a mess.

In this example we use a little bit of flour to mix things up!
