That's so cool,
So it's a frame by frame type thing right?
I've been trying something similar with visionlab for about a week.
I want this guy to seem to morph into the proporties of whatever object he touches. Metal, stone, wood, fire. that kind of thing.
the fire was easy and I'm still working on the three elements.
Using grade objects and masks I came up with a way to almost get the look I'm going for but I'm missing something to make the metalic skin look a little smoother.
The stone element looks pretty good so far. I've got an almost white and grayish look with a "coarse" appearance. It looks really rough and bumpy like an actual rock.
when I play with that a little it starts looking a little like tree bark but not quite right.
I'm thinking the transformation should take a second and a half to two seconds. three seconds at the most. Then we attach appliances to the guy that is transforming and resume shooting.
I'm cool with the frame by frame thing if that's what it takes.
I just gotta figure out how to do it in Gimp.
