live action combined with anim8or
« on: July 23, 2008, 12:00:15 pm »

Is it possible to set a video that you made as a background on anim8or. Say i wanted to make a dragon that i fight one on one and it shows us both in the same scene.

well, as long as the camera is standing still, that is possible, render with a green or blue background, film yourself, or an area. then download or buy a greenscreen or bluescreen software :)

or if you've got a half-decent video editor that can handle alpha-channel compositing, then you could render the dragon with any colour background you like, then also render an alpha-channel video, and use that method to do the compositing.

depending on what sort of background you want, and/or if you want yourself to appear in front of the dragon on screen (ie. the dragon is between yourself and the background), then you might want to shoot yourself on blue/greenscreen, and do the background as a separate plate, as per the attached picture.  obviously, that'd be more complicated, but it would allow for more interaction between yourself and the CG character.  ;D
