What did you use to do your 3D tracking?…syntheyes? najork July 22nd, 2009 I used PFHoe Pro, aside from two shots that were more stationary. heymaxvfx July 22nd, 2009 could u do the same in apple motion??? or something similar brianwalsh.nyc July 23rd, 2009 @heymaxvfx you need a 3D tracking app, like SynthEyes, PFTrack, Boujou, or PFHoe to solve for the camera. Then you’d bring the camera data into AE and use Trapcode 2 to create the animated elements. Motion is really limited. ddd_dave July 23rd, 2009 Fantastically Saweet! shahab July 24th, 2009 Good job Eric Epstein ! Could you possibly tell me how u create shadows of particle on the streets ? Does particles cast shadows on another layer ? or s.th else ? thanx ! najork July 25th, 2009 @ shahab. The shadows feature provides shading but does not cast shadows really. Those are pre-comps of the same particle setup laid on the ground. shahab July 29th, 2009 Hey Eric ! thanx ! an other quastion! Is particulars effect of a layer cast shadows on particular effect on another layer ? I think u r using 3 or more particular layers for “streaklet on street” part of your proj. Is that right? so it seems that upper layers are casting shadows on the beneath layers ( particular layers) and they are darker ! May be a little tutorial ! Thank you very much! heymaxvfx July 25th, 2009 @brianwalsh.nyc Thanks that’s good to know, i had no idea AE could read a Syneyes file (or 3D track) Thanks :) Comments are closed.
