View Full Version : car-cloth vfx shot

01 January 2006, 04:37 PM
although this shot is more than a year old by now i decided to show it. time to finish it was less than 2 days that's why the compositing looks a bit lousy (especially on the hands) but anyway i hope you like this shot:
small animation (1.6mb quicktime) (

time was so short because i've had the idea on the last shooting day on set. and two days later everything had to be finished.. so completely my fault lol

i used cinema4d + aftereffects

I love it. Looks cool and i really like these types of effects. However the hand grabbing the cloth looks a little odd.

I found this forum just recently and joined. So far some of the stuff, actually most of the stuff i've been seeing is very impressive. Seems like everyone on this board works for some big movie studio, judging by their skill level.

@Ironhorse23: thanks :) yes i meant the hands with 'lousy compositing' :) these things happen when there are litterally only some minutes left to do your compositing.
also i do not like the keying but take a look at this improved greenscreen we shot with:
as you can see there were no special lights, the cameraman used fields, wrinkles in the screen, no distance to the screen etc...
but in the end the client really loved it so it was worth the stress :)

@Kirl, Archigraphica, JIII: thanks! glad you like it

Old Idea but i like the Composition.
I don't like to much when she grap the Cloth form the car. But for the other thingss looks cool.

Bearbeiten Sie noch das weiter oder ist das definitive Composition.

hi 2xbo

yes i remembered some commercial on our set when the used a normal white cloth and pulled it from the car. i told the idea to the director who liked it.

sadly i didn't have a chance to make finetunings on the compositing/clothgrabbing because of the short deadline.

thanks for watching,
