Predator Style Invisibility
This is my first attempt at the Predator Invisibility. This was an incredibly short test and only took about 10 minutes (about 7 or 8 to render and 2 to make), so there are a few animation flaws. And in case you were wondering, that is footage from Andrew Kramer’s Serious FX and Compositing DVD (It just had a greenscreen and it was the first thing I found, so I used it). For those of you who want to know how to do this: You need a shot of someone in front of a greenscreen. In aftereffects, create a comp of this footage and apply keylight or whatever keying plug in you use to it. Create a new comp with the same settings and put the first comp in it as well as your background image. Apply the “Displacment Filter” on the background and use your greenscreen comp as the matte. You can then hide the greenscreen comp and see the resulting distorted background. Fool around with the effect controls to fit your needs.
