iPod ? What's that? :curious:

awesome guys! your videos are fantastic - I learnt Shake purely from watching them - keep up the good work and thanks for a free one!

by the way, you can download the Ipod ad from the apple site and then use the footage to re-key out their BG plate and comp it back over your own colour/plate if you want - great practice! (disclaimer: obviously just for learning purposes, and not commercial). I've made a few pretty cool variations using their footage this way. great fun!

ps. just watched the tutorial - very cool stuff. I'll be buying your Advancing Keying for Shake DVD as soon as my loan comes through.

The masking out the girl and blackening her out is the easy part, but I like to know what technique they used to show the Ipod cable. It's very doable, but tricky and time consuming from a compositing side. Probably easier if the cable was done in 3D using dynamic.

i heard on the grapevine the cables were painted in afterwards frame-by-frame. not sure if it's true, but if it is... wow.

Yeah...I heard a farm of G5s was used to render the cable....wow!:eek:
