Face pushing through wall
on Jul 23, 2011 at 2:36:10 am

Hi all

Trying to make a face look like it's pushing through a wall, ala Nightmare on Elm Street. Read an earlier thread explaining using footage shot specifically for the effect, but I've been given a demonic face image and a challenge instead. Trying to use the face image as a displacement map for giving the wall footage a bit of a rubbery push, and it's kinda of getting the effect I want, but not quite there. Someone suggested using the FreeForm plugin, but since buying it a few weeks ago I haven't used it much so I'm not sure how to accomplish this.

Again, displacement map method may be enough, but I'm also open to other suggestions.

Any ideas?
