Patronus with green screened footage and saber?

Postby mikesimmons on 12/16/2017, 3:02 pm

So, I'm trying to figure out how to make a horse patronus with some green screened footage. I can kind of make it work using the keyed footage, adding saber plugin with the core set to Layer Masks, then expanding the core to fill the horse shape. Like I said, it kind of works, but there's still this solid core there. Anyone have a suggestion how to make the keyed horse into an animated layer mask or something (without having to trace and rotoscope every frame), then use the patronus effect on the layer mask core?

Am I way off?

Any help would be awesome, thanks!

I'm not sure what, exactly, it is you're asking for. Could you show some pictures?

Obviously the OP doesn't realize not everyone has watched any of the harry potter movies...hahaha!!!

and perhaps post an image of your footage and it might help?

This is best off created in a dedicated 3D program with correct texture and a glow effect etc.

I think, perhaps, they're asking for something like Auto-Trace.
