Where can i find some cool vfx breakdowns and tutorials?
on Oct 6, 2011 at 2:30:43 am

i am specifically interested in movies like: sin city, the spirit, the matrix, speed racer, the losers(those comic like sequences), kick ***(the 3d comic like sequences), the other guys(3D time freeze effect at the bar), realistic particles indicating snow etc. and music videos like: dj got us falling in love - ushers ft pitbull(usher moves realtime and everybody else is in slow motion), john - lil' wayne featuring ric ross etc.

i already know a lot of visual effects, and i do have an idea of what the worflow used looks like, but i might be wrong. im trying to develop my vfx skills further by understanding the more complex effects used in these movies. i really like doing this kind of thing so i hope you guys can point me in the right direction(s)

It would help if you would ask specific questions. It's hard to answer such general questions.

alright. here goes. from sin city and the spirit i woul like to know effects like the color correction, the color isolation. from the matrix i would like to know the slow motion effects, the take of and flying itself. from speed racer: the photographic like transitions, the crowds and races them selfes amd also the lens flairs. i still dont quite get how to do the obscuration and the tracking in video footage.i only saw tutorials on how to do it in motion graphics. the rest of the effects i did describe in my post.

i use the adobe master collection, 3ds max, maya, redgiant plugins, video copilot tools, revision fx, etc

Here's a good place to start regarding the Sin City color result:
"Remove all colors from an image but one"

I found that using this search.

I found even more using this search.

You will have to do a lot of digging yourself to find out what you need. Some of the vfx you mentioned are done by teams of people, highly trained in specific jobs and led by a Director for VFX who guides the process. It takes them weeks and sometimes months to do them, not to mention big budgets.
Some good resources for tutorials:
videocopilot.net
ae.tutsplus.com
