It will start as a silhouetted soccer player doing some moves(live footage and corrected in AE), with the camera facing him, he will then kick the ball and I would like the camera to pan/rotate with the ball so that when the ball passes the camera it will be viewing it going away. The soccer player will be on a green screen so I am thinking that I will just create a digital 3d environment in AE so at some point I can have a camera follow a 3d sphere. I would really REALLY appreciate some suggestions/tips. I know how to create the silhouette of the live footage, I am questioning how to compose the ball after it is kicked with a digital sphere so I can follow it with a 3d camera.
I am sorry I am trying to learn almost from scratch and have some high hopes.
Please brainstorm with me. Thanks Micah
