How to Composite two videos to create Accident scene effect
on Dec 29, 2011 at 10:14:26 pm

Hi,

I have shot two videos without moving my camera.
video 1: A guy in the left corner of the frame standing and talking on the phone. After a while, he is jumping out of the frame as if like he met with an accident.

video 2: Same frame I shot a car coming and passing the frame. After few seconds i shaked the camera and ran near the car front where the guy is lying down as if like he met with an accident.

Composite : Now i have cropped the video 1 on the right and video 2 on the left. But when the car moves, how do i create a effect as a single video to create an accident scene?

Please advise. I can't find any video tutorials or any sort of help on this. I am learning editing and want to do this for a small fun video which we shot for baby orientation.

Appreciate your help. Thanks!

Rotoscoping. You can do it in Motion. Personally, I prefer After Effects for this stuff.

If you have After Effects, you can check out the tutorials at videocopilot.net. I don't know Motion very well; I have AE.

I just started learning AE. I can look it up and see if i can do it. But I saw rotoscopic video. It looks like i should key out the background where i cannot because its' one single frame two videos shot in my apt parking area.

Dave I used rotoscope to isolate the person who is jumping out of the frame. I put the other video where the car is going forward starting at the frame where the person is start jumping.

Now how do i keep the isolated subject on top of this frame? Basically how to mask the rest of the area so the car can hit him?

I can't figure that out. Pls assist. Thank you!
