Join Lee Lanier for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating fake reflections and parallax, part of VFX Techniques: Crowd Replication with After Effects.
We have assembled a nice crowd here on the front row using four image sequences, some…green screen tools, and motion tracking.…Before we move on to the second row, however, I'd like to go back to the panels and address those.…There's a couple of things missing here.…One is any kind of reflection and two is some kind of rotational shift that you would normally…get with the movement of the camera, and that's not occurring because it's just motion tracked…where it moves up, down, left, and right. Let's address the Reflection first.…One way to do this to Copy the 1A layer. So Edit > Duplicate and then affect that copy.…
I am going to pull that New layer down below the first one.…I'll rename that reflection because that's what it's going to be.…And then we can adjust it.…First thing I want to do is blur it so add Effects > Fast blur.…I'll crank up the Blur pretty high here to 10, and you can start to see it now.…And now when I move it over to the right and down.…To do that what I can do is offset the anchor points.…
