Re: How to create this effect using composite modes

The stopped motion on the non-moving camera angles would be fairly EASY to comp, the moving cameras with require rotoscoping, which FCP DOESN'T do... After Effects it is for that.

Thanks Shaun. How would one go about creating the non-moving parts?

Re: How to create this effect using composite modes

- Still frame captures of the frames where each of the "frozen" elements occur.
- "Cut out" the element in question in Photoshop
- Reimport the still into FCP
- Creative use of layers and opacity

Again, only works when the camera ISN'T in motion...

Great, many thanks Shaun. Why could the same technique not be applied when the clip is panning, for example?

Perspective may/will change and be readily noticeable. Give it a shot if you like, it's only time... Time spent learning to do something is time well spent.

Re: How to create this effect using composite modes

Hi Tim,

It took some time for me to find back the tutorial I saw at Digital Juice a year ago but I found it here's the link;

Time After Time :: Digital Juice TV

I think this is exactly what you are looking for. For me at least is a thousand times easier then explaining it my self.

Good luck with it. And of course I'm interested to see your work when finished.

Regards,
Gerrit.
