View Full Version : What techniques do I need to acheive the following?

11 November 2010, 12:10 PM
I plan to take some video footage of car driving towards camera.

I want to freeze the footage and do a camera move.

I figure to do this I'd need to somehow comp in some CG reflections to the footage so that the transition from video to 3d cam projection will be smoother.

I can handle the camera move from a still frame but not sure best approach for integrating with video. Any advice would be appreciated.

I can create a spherical HDRI for scene and also map onto some geometry if it's required.

I'm using Max for 3D work & Composite or AE for compositing though think this should be quite generic.

*edit* I've not worked with live footage before so am just looking for the names of techniques that I should be learning so that I can acheive the desired effect.
