Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding animation, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
So, once you've got your models all set up, it's time to bring them to life and to animate.…One of the most interesting animation components I had in this project was…creating this shot, which is a combination of a live action shot.…For this, I actually used footage from a Red Scarlet camera. This is what the…original footage looked like;…this is the clip that I used.…Meow, there she goes, and as you could tell, here, this is a really quick and…simple set up. This is in my basement. And there she goes.…
So then, what I had to do was I actually had to track this footage as is, before I…keyed it out, and all that kind of stuff. So, that way, the tracker could get the…information from the shot, because we're using a wide lens, here. So, as the camera…gets closer to her, her facial features distort.…And so, I needed the After Effects camera to distort things in the same way.…So, that was a little bit tricky. I tried to use the After Effects camera tracker…to look for the movement in the shot, and it couldn't get it. So, I had to use the…
