This is a test for a effect simillar to that one in Fight Club.
Unfortunately there where no live actors present, so all the objects are static.
The movie is made by pannig the camera over the room several times, matching them together, and creating masks. Finally I added some AlamDV fx... whitch are temp effects, I'll make more advanced effects soon smile

How is your camera moving from left to right always at the same speed?
What gadget or tripod or whatever do you use?

Thanks in advance! biggrin

Heh, I'm panning manually, thats what made this test so hard to make. I had to 'sync' every frame of the tree clips manually, with twixtor. I'm currently creating an automating panner from a windowwasher engine from my car, for my next test. smile

Something you can do if you have a wide angle lens or any good camera, is to film a scene with and without an object, then an easy transition from left to right and then add motion with premiere and some AlamDV effects.

But only shadows won't be realistic. But it's an easy way to do the effect.

Wow, thats strange? A useful test shot that shows another potential use of effects from Alam.

That was very nice, you also had good timing with the shadows you put a lot of effort into this, I can tell.

Well, I used alot of time on it... But wasn't satisfied with the shadow, I made that faster than the other things, coz I was tired of the whole thing, and it was only a test smile

Thanks for the feedback
