Lastly I'd like to demonstrate for you a technique that was recently popularized…by the movie The Kid Stays in the Picture.…It's a very time-consuming technique so I'm going to be showing you just the…broad strokes of how you would go by doing it rather than taking you through…every single step, because that would take forever.…The idea behind this technique is take a still image this happens to be a single…frame from a high-def video and cutting it up so that you can reanimate it…inside 3D in a program like After Effects.…What works best for this is if you have an image that has a few clearly defined…objects such as this man, these support poles, this pot.…
What I originally thought was a bit of the wall, but I think now it's actually a…fan here in the background that don't overlap too much.…The reason is, you need to recreate parts that you cannot see in the original…photo, because you're being obscured by something else.…Something like this fan or this pot is not so bad to go ahead and clone.…
