Adding Video to 3d Model using Video Copilot Element

I have green screen footage of 2 kids looking out of an airplane window. I need to start with the faces of the kids and pull out and reveal the plane in flight.

When I add the video footage to the airplane map, I have to scale the footage down to match size. Video gets really pixeled when I zoom in.

I cant figure out how to do this effect.

Look at the effect about 42 seconds in: boy looking out of plane






But I need the camera to zoom all the way out to reveal the plane in flight


Your advise is appreciated!

Thanks!

I wouldn't map the video over the model as a texture. As you discovered, it will lose it's quality when zoomed in. I'd just create a mask over the footage and then track it as you zoom away from the airplane. Sometimes, you gotta get your hands dirty with keyframes :)

Thanks!

I ended up creating a row of airplane windows - making that a composition and inside VC Element, I created a 3d null on the airplane. I copied the position data of the null to the airplane windows comp
