Hi there! This is my first post at this seemingly great forum :)

I am currently making a short over-the-top Michael Bay-ish short, and in this specific scene we have a bad MF (me) shooting a cardboard minigun. However, I have scratched my head so much on how do make the barrel rotate like the real thing. I successfully rotoscoped and blurred it, but how do you do the spinning? Any tips? Any help would be much appreciated.





It should look something like 2:19 at this clip:






"Every gun makes its own tune... and it's perfect timing, large one."

Hide the front of the gun behind a HUGE muzzleflash!
(if that is allowed and fits)
Get some good sound FX of a Gatling (Getling... how ever)!
Sound will help you sell the FX.

Maybe you can fool the audience by using a 3 or 4 frame loop, with different barres posission behind a blur and a muzzleFlash.

I hope this helps!

That's pretty much what they did in your linked clip. During the shot from the side it looks like they're moving the barrels up and down very quickly with a lot of blur. The shots from the front they're hiding the barrels with muzzle flash.

Motion blur will give you the final result.
