Staggered/superimposed/composite = awesome editing technique - any ideas?
on Apr 3, 2012 at 9:26:14 pm

How do everyone.

Wonder if you can help. No time pressure for a job deadline or anything, but I really want to know how this effect was managed. Check out the staggered bikes at 0.39-0.42....

Any ideas?

I get that you'd Copy+Paste several of the clips and stagger them, but I can't for the life of me see how it's been composited so beautifully and cleanly. I've been playing round with 8-point garbage mattes but not even coming close; I'm guessing I'm not even ballpark close. This is a stunning technique and I'd love to get a handle on how to do it; I might be shooting and editing a parkour video over the summer and this technique would be ideal. Any help appreciated!

Using FCP7.

Cheers,

simon

Having shot with a fast shutter speed, I think this can be a "Time average" (Sapphire).

EDIT: No I don't think have been done with the Time Average

I ripped a video off Youtube and played around with the 8-point garbage matte in FCP - obviously very rough, but I wondered if this is starting to get ballpark:







I haven't done this before - I know it's very basic! Keen to hear advice on the technique though if anyone knows more and has the time to talk about it. I've read you can get a free 64-point garbage matte plug-in, which would neaten the trailing 'ghost' images, and given enough time I'd keyframe the garbage mattes around moving footage, rather than the freeze frame... Obviously best to shoot static with no movement in the background.... what else?

Hi Rafael,

Thanks fella, but is that the right thread? 'Exporting .ts from compressor'....

Look up Stephen Smith's "time-slice" tutorial here on the COW: he lays it all out.

Awesome, thanks Mark - it's a big help even knowing it has a name. I'll check it out and get back to practice.

Cheers,
