Join Andy Needham for an in-depth discussion in this video The importance of shot analysis, part of Cinema 4D R20 Essential Training: VFX.
can be far from simple, so it's important to carry out … appropriate shot analysis before getting to work. … When we're analyzing the footage, … we're obviously looking at something that's 2D … but we need to think in 3D, in depth. … What we want to do is make sure that there's … enough depth information for the software. … The software needs that so that … it can calculate the camera motion, … and it obtains that by observing the parallax in the shot. … Now, this was the shot that we were looking at … in our previous movie, where we just … simply clicked the full solve command, … and just let the computer get to work. … And it did find a solution but, you know, on closer analysis … we can see that there's certainly … lens distortion present, there are moving … people in the scene and there's some potential problem areas … like the reflections in the windows and things like that. … And so, you know, through analysis … So, let's just discuss some potential problem areas. … We've already seen in that shot, …
