Yeah…I’m brilliant at football…
I haven’t uploaded this to my main channel because its not that good. Its not exciting enough! If you haven’t guessed already, its fake. I did it in After Effects by merging two elements together and making the ball change course. I recorded me kicking the ball normally and where I want the ball to hit/land, then I masked out the ball, made it curl and line up with the ball landing while covering up the original ball. It came out quite nicely. However, I had some problems when recording the footage from the camcorder on to the computer. You can see it in the video, it’s a bit jumpy. I don’t know why so I’ll have to do some tests. It might be because I converted it from 25 to 24 frames per seconds.
Its only test really for a video I had in mind.
See the raw footage here:
Some making of photos:
I was playing FIFA online yesterday, to have my brother walk in and tell me to ‘take a look at this Sagaris outside!’ You’d think I’d run out there immediately…I finished my game first.
So its a TVR, hand made British cars from Blackpool. Lightweight and fast. My brother actually owns a TVR S3, but this Sagaris was the last model TVR made before they shut down in 2006. Its owned by a fellow TVR lover, and its in two colours. Its pearlescent. As you move around the car it’s colour changes – amazing. Apparently £1500 a litre for the paint!
He started it up (oh my) and reversed it down the drive (unfortunately) but we saw and heard him speed away at the entrance. Heres a video:
I’ve been working on a basic webpage layout by following some awesome Dreamweaver Tutorials. Its pretty boring but my website will be awesome.
I’ve learnt how to position things and how to make a good looking interactive navigation menu. Its kind of similar to what I’m planning for my site.
