View Full Version : how to rattle windows?

so the spaceship lifts off from behind an abandoned building...

i would like to rattle the windows of the building to help sell the overall vibration of the shot but i'm not sure what the best way is.

right now i've roto'd each window out and randomly animated their position with a simple expression. it looks ok but not great. ideally i would have the reflections of the windows kinda bow in and out very quickly but i don't really know how to simulate that.

after adding camera shake i mostly lose the windows vibration but if i could get the reflection thing happening i think that would help a lot.

any thoughts or suggestions?

you could try doing them in 3d ...with a bit of motion blur going with the camera shake should work well.
