But seriously, post a tutorial it was great!

Thanks for the good reviews! I used visionlab for it (but you could definitely come out with the same results in compositelab). I'll work on a tutorial within the next couple of days and post it.

thanks again!

In my opinion you should make it a little more fast. Also, the camera work at the beginning had the home video handheld vibe to add to the effect, but when it panned up it kind of just stuck. I'd add some animation to the whole clip to make it look like the camera man is holding it, maybe even trying to get his bearings. The compositing was fine and acting was believable, I just think the animation could have been improved. Just my two cents, take it or leave it.

well i love a good two cents so i will gratefully take it.

The camera work in the beginning was actually my dad filming "handheld" (even though it was on a tripod) for me and i told him to just let go of the camera when i jumped so i would have a steady frame to match the pan up on.

I'll see if i can go back and do a second pass on it this weekend and change the pan and balcony footage to look a bit more realistic.

Ill also try and make the jump a bit less straight forward up and down to look more like an actual jump.

again, thanks for the C&C!

Your jump is pretty cool- I'd love to see how you did it.

This guy on youtube has a whole series of "super powers" things he did-
Here is his jumping one:

Thanks for the comments guys! I went back and did some modifying, so here's the second pass through. I added some camera movements and drastically improved the jump animation.

I think greenscreen is a much quicker way, he used the natural enviornment to do this.

If people here would like I could make a tutorial on how to greenscreen a super-jump... But with Sony Vegas 7.0, not any other NLE...
