I'm interested to know how you went about traking the CG into the shots. did you use Boujou or some other tracking software, or did you do it by hand in the 3D or compositing app?

DJSmackMackey: For my part it was very easy. There was no camera-movement, only a small jiggle was visible in the footage, so i just needed to stabilize the footage. For this i used the stabilizer from AfterEffects. Then I could rebuild the scene in 3D.

Greetings, Andreas

Smile Whoah!

WHOAH!

Thanks everybody!

I saw from the moment I found it (a wee bit late ) that it would be a very fun piece to do... luckily I was able to do it... of course ever single shot could be tweaked, but it was a fun fun FUN experience to try to do it "in the tiny time allotted".

I bow to all my fellow entrants, with perhaps a special nod to L'explorateur for his increadibly stylistic piece, but also to all others who participated in this little "challenge".

Again, thanks everybody, I am humbled and happy! *deep bow*

/Z

P.S. Camera tracking was done in the once-freeware app "Icarus". I'll write some details later in my fxwars thread....

FX wars : Volcano : L'explorateur

123 MB ? A wee bit large for a quick download, any chance of recompressing with some different settings?


cheers

those were really good, definitely TV quality. I won't go as far as movie quality, but yall can get a job in TV no problem. Of course that's not meant to be offensive, because to make movie-quality effects it requires a team of like 17 ppl or more...
