plasma ball effect

Recommended Posts

What's the best way to roto the plasma ball footage so it can be comped in with the cgi people?

 

Shoot it on a black background in a dark room and use a blend mode. You might have to use a motion-control camera if you want to match the camera moves in your 3D software.

 

Actually, I was just kidding. biggrin.gif

Yeah thats 100% trapcode. I don't spend much time there but I think there's a lot of energy ball type stuff over at video copilot with nice extras helping you light the scene around it etc if needed.

Damn, and I already rented the plasma ball and everything. :angry:

 

*ahem* I think I might be just as bad at detecting sarcasm as I assume other people are. Even if the other person is playing along with my own joke. unsure.gif
