Hi there,

I have been asked to make a still shoe look like it is walking. It is just a simple side shot. I'm thinking the most tricky part is making it actually look like it is impacting the floor.
Does anyone have any particularly wonderful way I could achieve this??

Puppet Tool or the Mesh Warp are two excellent distortion tools suited for this job. You may end up using them together - it all depends on the level of detail you want to achieve.

Thanks for that. I've heard a little about the puppet and thought that sounded like a possibility. Time to learn a new tool I think ;)
