Time Freeze Effect

Postby Koos on 04/11/2016, 6:59 am

Hi

Can someone please tel me hoe to pull of the time freeze effect as shown in this TV advert where everything is frozen but one subject is still able to move around and interact with the frozen subjects. I know how to do the basic freeze effect, but not the moving and interacting effect.

Thanks

Hi Koos, welcome. There is this way:

Another basic way of doing it is to have everyone stand very still while the moving character interacts with them. You need to have a static environment - ie a greenscreen behind a window so that the view can become a frozen frame. You can have real objects (such as a ball in mid air) hanging on wires or composite objects in during post-production so that they freeze in the middle of an action ie a cup of coffee spilling.

Like Koos said. There was probably only one character moving on the scene while rest standing still :)
