how to achieve this effect?

Hi there,

i'm aware this probably isn't done in fcp but is rather a camera/animation/3d motion trick of some kind - but could anymore enlighten me as to how this effect might be achieved.

You can find it at 6mins 22 seconds. Its a sort of weird still motion pan around the characters - as if they were frozen in time.

cheers guys. jack :)

It's called BULLET TIME, and it was first used on THE MATRIX. It involves dozens of still cameras lined up around the subject that either take a picture all at the same time, or a fraction of a second apart. And then stitched together as one QT movie.

If you have THE MATRIX DVD, there is a special feature that goes into detail on how they did this.

Nice one - that makes sense. I always thought bullet time was just super slow motion and then the whole 3d rotating thing came in - this just seems to be a still image so didn't make the connection. I'll look it up - cheers!

Jack :)
