Add animations to real life videos.
« on: November 19, 2009, 04:23:22 am »

I want to know how to add 3D animations to real life videos. Like adding a flying disc in the air on a home video. is there any programs i can try?

 Probably the way to go would be 'chromokeying'.
 I use Sony Vegas Movie studio, which has an excellent chromokeyer. ;)
 You could search for something free. Sony cost me about $80 through www.newegg.com

 Chromokeying is like, you would render your flying disc in anim8or with a pure green background, then that file goes into sony and is placed on the track 'above' the real-life video.  When you chromokey the .an8 rendered video, all the green will disappear and the other video will show through.
 Its a  really cool thing.  ;D
