Blue Fire Right after Effects Tutorial

38

Some people suggested that I should make a tutorial for the Blue Flame video I posted a few weeks ago, so here it is: A Blue Fire After Effects Tutorial! If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask! Feel free to leave a comment. To download the Fire footage, go to; dl.dropbox.com To get the Day4Night preset, download the presets from Video Copilot: www.videocopilot.net

Another tutorial from www.curiousturtle.com, this time showing a great technique to speed up rotoscoping using Mocha & After Effects. In this part of the tutorial we start to get down to serious roto work. We look at out matte and see what we need to fill in and what we need to remove. Check out the other videos in our channel or visit the main site for more training.

    have you ever heard of the “tracker”
    its a pretty useful tool that helps you track points (so the´╗┐ fire follows)

    You can use ordinary color-correction with color balance, even though´╗┐ it will be a bit harder.

    It could be that your source footage is very compressed and difficult to work with and get a clean key from.
    If you post´╗┐ a video it will be easier to see. PM me.

    i have liked the video.. but i CS3 and the videos i always render are noisy.. what could be´╗┐ the cause ?

  29. SenorCajones
    SenorCajones06-20-2012

    The term is “shear”, not “shears”. “Shears” are scissors,´╗┐ or the present tense of the verb “shear”. “Shears” as a noun does not exist in mocha.

    It is how the shape (geometric plane) distorts. It helps when tracking something´╗┐ that doesn’t stay the same shape throughout the clip.

    what does´╗┐ Shears calculates?

  33. o0curiousturtle0o

    On Windows its in C:Program Files/Adobe/After Effects CS4(or 5)/mocha/mocha for After´╗┐ Effects.

  34. SuperThebullet

    can yu give path because I´╗┐ cant find mocha

  35. o0curiousturtle0o
    o0curiousturtle0o06-21-2012

    It’s hidden in the After Effects folder, in´╗┐ another folder called Mocha.

    The Mocha AE that comes with CS4 iwill only export tracking data.

    The newer version of Mocha for´╗┐ After Effects let you export out masks and bring them directly into AE. You need to have the mochaShape plugin for it to work though.

    It’s a seriously good workflow if you ever need to do roto!

  37. o0curiousturtle0o
    o0curiousturtle0o06-21-2012

    The Mocha that comes with AE is V1.23. It only exports tracking data.

    The new version of Mocha for After Effects allows you to export masks out too, but you have to have the mochaShape plugin to be able to import that information in to AE.

    It’s a seriously good workflow if you ever need to do rotoscoping work.´╗┐

    What’s the´╗┐ difference of the Mocha that ships with After Effects and Mocha Shapes?
