taking one frame at a time since 1999
A test I did for more elaborate motion blur.
I see. I thought he will be in the new film, because his dance is really nice! :) Thank you for your kind reply, and good luck for your new project!!
Thank you all. :)
Haruko - this was just a test. I am working on a new short, but it doesn't include Mr. Zombie here.
Impressive! All movement was so natural and humorous, I love it! Is this a part of your film project, if I may ask you here?
If you get so natural feeling in the movements in direct animation you don't need reference at all.
The puppet is really alive! although it's a dead man!
Actually, I didn't use any. It's good that you bring up reference, though, because it's something I really should use more. Over the years I've gotten in a bad habit of just improvising without a real end goal in mind, and when I do that, I end up with puppets that just kinda flop around like you see here.
Did you use a real video as reference?
Roos, the blur was made using a variation of Peter Montgomery's technique, with he posted about in The Handbook, here: http://www.stopmotionanimation.com/page/megamotion-the-motion-blur-...
It involves using the "Timewarp" function in After Effects -- I set the Speed of the clip to playback at 100% then clicked "enable motion blur." Next, I set the box to "Manual" mode, so that I could change the shutter angle to: 275.04. -- then I pulled the shutter samples to 11. After that, I used a little bit of "Directional Blur" on an animated mask to enhance certain parts that I wanted to be extra blurry.
Very nice animation! Motion blur works well, what method did you use to achieve the effect? Is the character part of a bigger project?
