Time Lapse, Vanishing Points, Photoshop, After effects, and Image Sequnces.. OH MY
on Feb 7, 2017 at 6:14:33 pm

Hi everyone,
Currently I'm working on a project of a time lapse that shows the construction of offices in side of a building. The Camera shows 3 walls, ceiling, and floor and is stationary the whole time. Now if this was just one 2d image I can use the Vanishing Point filter in Photoshop and then boom ill have a 3d room to use the camera in AE and float around. My question is, is there a way to use the vanishing points filter on every image of the sequence (1 Day is about 400 images) and then just bring it into AE as a comp. Or, is it possible to use the Vanishing point filter on a locked down video showing the same 3 walls ceiling and floor and float around the video.. Thanks in advance!

AE can't do it. It doesn't know about the Vanishing Point filter, which is best suited for planar surfaces.

But you CAN do it to a limited extent in Photoshop. Frame-by-frame. For all 400 images. And then export an image sequence for use in AE.

Damn. That's what I figured. Is there anyway to copy and paste the vanishing points to every frame? Or do I need to do it by hand for everyone

Rather than using the Ps Vanishing Point filter, you can re-build the planes in 3D space and use a projection technique to get your free-floating camera.

Here's the idea:

Although you can do this with the build-in tools, there are a couple of third-party tools that make it easier:
