Hello guys,

I m gonna do second entry.yeah i have done almost everything with this entry too.
It's first kind of close i saw UFO only.
it's like "UFO visits myhouse" when i wasn't in my room.

this was more fun to me and first time i did camera tracking and live action video compositing.

Here is the snapshot of my little short clip.

That looks great! I like the mirror reflection. I think it could use a shadow to blend it in even better.

What software did you use for tracking?

Really cool stuff Jignesh! :arteest: I like the real look of it! As you matched the CG stuff really nice with the quality of the webcam-imagery, you get a very real feel! :) Also I really like the heath-waves on the bottom of the 'UFO'! They look really convincing!

My only critique would be that sound would be cool?! Just some 'bleep-bleep' and some spacy/wavy sounds would really create a better experience, don't you think? :)

Good luck on the voting (with your both entries!) & Have a nice day!

Thanks guys for replies!!

Max_powere :: i first used 3ds max default camera tracker utility which is nice. i matched my 3ds max cam for every and each frame of footage but when i saw viewport preview, camera movements were too jerky and noisy.and i didn't get to solve i used voodoo camera tracking software.and it matched everything automatically.(lol)

yeah reflection is done with screenmapping on matt 3d object.and i rendered whole animation in one pass from 3ds max and took into combustion to add grain,little blur and color correction.

Dutchman :: yo man!! i sure would like add some sounds though i m not good with sound compositing. and i don't have much time m busy in Festival of "kites" called "Uttarayan"....and would be on terrace for coming 3 days to cut others fighter kits with my kits!! :D love this festival)

and yeah best of luck guys for voting....
