Does anybody know how to do make a super strength effect like throwing a car or something. Just something that shows super strength. If any one has any tips?

After you follow this tutorial, all you'd have to do is add a person lifting up a car.

There as bunch of ways to show super strenght, depending on what suits you. Using keying (similar to posted tutorial) seems easiest: you can have person pick another up with one hand, or even do one-hand inverted push-ups wink Infinite possibilities.

Without compositing (no green screen/garbage mate) I would recommend you see this: http://www.theforce.net/fanfilms/nonsw/grayson/

Watch the trailer and see how Superman picks up a vehicle. Then watch the BTS and see how it was done. No digital tampering.


BTW, his BTS is great really smile
