03-29-2007, 11:42 PM

Im a Combustion user since septembre 06, this is my first test trying to insert 3d objets in a real video footage

The original Video -recorded with a canon (digital) SD550 (7.7-23.1 mm focus) 640x480 30 fps

The original QT7 Video (

I use this points to stabilize the video

Combustion Settings
Combustion Nodes

Stabilized video QT7 (

After that i create a 3D scene
CarraraPro 5 render

change the shaders to shadow catcher and render to .rpf files -with objet index metadata-

RPF files -objet index-

And here comes the funny work...

Here is the combustion map

1.-Layer one original stabilized video

2.-Layer two -start the funny part- extract objects and mask the corners

3.-Layer three same as two

4.-Layer four extract objet, make some noise, blur objet, add a little glow

5.-Layer five extract objet, make some noise and glow objet

6.-Stabilize (destabilized again) the video using this points

7-8 .- Resize video and final output render

The final QT7 Video 7MB (
