Curious Turtle Fundamentals of mocha – 12 – Camera Solver – Pan Tilt Zoom

Curious Turtle Fundamentals of mocha – 12 – Camera Solver – Pan Tilt Zoom

August 1, 2012

Before we look at mocha’s Camera Solver, we fix issues with incorrectly interpreted interlaced footage.Next we identify what the camera motion is in the shot, to correctly create the type of tracked layers required to create the virtual camera.  In this tutorial the movement is Pan Tilt Zoom, so we prepare the main track layer plus a track matte layer. Once the camera is solved, we look at how to test it in After Effects using both a regular 3D text layer and a 3D particle layer.

Understanding Thinking Particles Fundamentals

July 31, 2012

Post at Motioneers.net: “Here is a video tutorial about Thinking Particles. This time we will go as basic as we can by avoiding presets and instead using the most fundamental nodes the particle system has to offer. We’ll set up an emitter from scratch and then build a simple particle simulation. This tutorial is – once again – not about creating fancy renders, it is meant to teach you the core techniques of Thinking Particles. I hope you learn something.”
