Effect at times:
1:33
and
3:08

The effect at 2:16 I think I can do. The shot is static so its easier but on the other two above the camera is moving...

I've had some ideas but so far I can't seem to get the frozen/stop motion/camera still moving down.

This is a combination of masking out those freeze frames and motion tracking (getting the freeze frame to move along with the camera so it looks like it's sticking in place).

See Motion tracking overview and resources [link] for more.

I guess its good I just upgraded from CS3 to CS5 and have access to the new Mocha AE!

So basically create all the frozen images masked out first, track the shot, and then match the freeze frames to the continuous video using the track to keep them in place relative to the camera motion...?

That's what I thought might be going on there!

Thanks for the response.
Brian

Walter gave you pretty much all you need- here's one more tip though:

In order to get clean frames to use when there's a lot of motion you need to shoot at a higher frame rate.

I am guessing that shooting faster frame rates is to reduce the motion blur between frames so I have cleaner shots to roto... if I don't have the option to shoot faster but I can up my shutter speeds would that have the same effect?
