View Full Version : Fxwars! Close Encounters : Jignesh Jariwala-1st (2nd entry)
I m gonna do second entry.yeah i have done almost everything with this entry too.
It's first kind of close encounters.so 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.
ok guys here is the final animation of my second entry.
"UFO visits My home"
i did this for fun and to learn cameratracking + live action compositing.
i used my intel webcam to capture my room.
would like to hear critques from u guys.

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 it.so 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 though.lol...i 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 ...lol..(just love this festival)
and yeah best of luck guys for voting....
