Flaking skin
on Feb 16, 2012 at 3:19:39 am

Looking for help on how to achieve a certain effect.
Basically a desingration effect, similar to video copilot.
But the skin needs to flake off like its molting.
Any pointers?

That's fundamentally different than the Video Copilot tutorial because you aren't breaking one layer down to reveal a background plate. You're working with 3-4 layers (the flaking skin, the arm, and the body. The bg being the fourth layer depending on what's going on). I would also think you'd have to wrap these particles in 3d. You could try something in a 3d suite like 3DSM or Maya, but if you haven't shot yet you may want to consider doing it in a practical manner with layers of liquid latex.

I only used the video copilot as an example of the look.
I wasn't sure if it was possible to do with 4 layers of the same footage with different textures for each layer.
