I have 2 shots. One shot is a moving train. The second shot is my and my frien who lay on the tracks without a moving train :). Now I would like to create the effect of the train passing by while we are beneath it.
Could anybody help me how to do this in motion?
Thanks a bunch
Awesome, this is going to be really cool. I would drop the clip of the people on top to the clip with the train. You may need to drop the opacity to the clip of the people to make sure it is lined up where the people are. Use the mask tool to create a mask along the tracks and the people so it sits on the other clip. Then mark a key frame for the mask control points when the train is about to hit the people. The go a few frames ahead of the timeline where the train completely covers up the people. Create another control point keyframe and move the control points to line up with the train. You may need to tweak some of the in-between keyframes but that will create the appearance as if the train is running them over. Hope this helps.
Hi, thanks for your help. I encountered a lot of problems. The tripod wasn't very steady so there was a slight movement of the camera. The time span between both shots was to big so in one shot there are a lot of shadows, the other is rather shadowless. But we managed to pull it of. Here's the link:
