Need A Blueprint to Reality Tutorial
on Mar 26, 2010 at 9:28:55 pm

Hey guys,

Got a client request to take a photograph and/or footage and make it come alive from a blueprint.

Anyone got a good tutorial for me to learn how to do this?

I've seen it done with text, but not a real scene...like a busy airport interior.

Thanks

Take the photo/video and draw the blueprint over it in something like Photoshop. Dissolve between the two in AE, or maybe use the gradient wipe effect.
The blueprint has to be drawn from the photo.

That's the general answer. Unless you had more specific requirements ...?

You would have to make a drawing of the scene and make it look like a blueprint.
I would suggest having this blueprint actually get drawn on as this tutorial demostrates.
Then you can transition different parts into the actual photograph. If I were in your position, I would mask off the various walls, floors, etc. and reveal the different parts separately. Probably using track mattes (or Effect>Transition>Gradient map) driven by precomps with fractal noise, turbulent noise or organic smoke or ink tank footage.

I'd like to make it 3Dish...or 2.5D.

you know, so its like you are kind of in the space that's being created. then cut to a wide shot of the whole blueprint that dissolves into the actual photo.

I did this a few years back for a web show. Sounds similar. It'sdefinitely 2.5d. I picked the shots, and had to semi match the existing camera angles. That was really near impossible on one shot. Maybe it'll sprout some ideas.

that was really cool. nice work. really inspired me.

just not sure if i have time in their budget to "illustrate" the background elements that move around into place.

was hoping to just trace the scene, animate some lines in, and fade to the original.

really awesome work though!

Thanks for the compliments. It was just too bad the dept sponsoring the project got disbanded after only one episode featuring that new intro. Serves us right for updating the graphics package!
