Hallo, I use VisionLab Studio and have a Question.
When I shot, and a blood spot falls at the wall, how can I do that the blood spot is every time at the same place on the wall. I saw this effect by After Effects.
My blood spot moves with the camera. Please help me!!!!!

You need to click on "animation" on your object on the timeline and then move your blood spot for each frame to make it stay the same place.

If you don't understand what I mean, you can take a look at the animation tutorial here.

As Pyro says, you need to animate the blood spot (every frame denpending on the movement on your cam).

If it doesn't come out right due to your animating or movement being to violent, you should keep your shot steady next time.

Knowing your limitations in post production will help you plan the actual shooting.

If you need the camera to be moving in the shot, the stasndard technique is to place a mark on the wall where the blood needs to be before you shoot the scene, so you have something to line the effect up with in each shot.
