Genius idea for organic keyframes
« on: June 22, 2010, 01:53:47 PM »
Hey guys,

Some of you will know Videocopilot.net which is in my opinion one of the best AE resources out there. Well the mastermind behind it, Andrew Kramer just developed an amazing and slightly incredible idea on how to retrieve focus data from a real camera's footage and apply it to a digital focus effect. The result is a natural focus pull that would be very hard to get with keyframes.

It's worth a look even if you don't use AE that much.  ;)

Wowie, now the only question I have is; what's the difference between 'amazing' and 'incredible'  :P is there any chance you're a little biased mr moderator ? :P

Lol,

I was just being a bit silly I suppose  :P And yes, I may be a bit biased but hey, he gives me free stuff so what can I do?  :D
You've gotta admit that that's pretty clever though.
