Camera Trickery Topic.


Hell No..

Recommended Posts

Anyone else enjoy making camera tricks that fools the mind? I do. I like doing video tricks now, just basic things that can look really cool on film.

 

Heres something I did.

 

 

 

And of course, who can forget, the clones?

I made this just now. It's only small, and there's a line where the light contrasts, but it's not bad for a first try I don't think...

Pretty cool video Oh No..., It'd be cooler if you could get it to do a clone effect, so when you open the door at the left, you are simultaneously opening the door on the right. It'd be hard to mimic the same motions, but it'd be an awesome effect.

 

The clone pictures are cool too, I should try them out some time.

My friends and I just discovered the wonders of a pause button when making videos.

Thanks all! Appreciated.

 

@Pic, thats what im going to try and do next, some sort of clone video. Be great.

 

@Don, haha yeah, pausing does help. But when im on my own, I just do it all in one, and just keep rolling. Then crop to the right parts after.

The way that area is set up, that door at the back and the door in the foreground are set up perfectly. You simply chop the video in half (You'll need real video software, no WMM). Set up the video accordingly, Tada! Clone effect.

 

I don't know how to do anything more advanced though tounge.gif Nice static clones too by the way.

I'm really loving your video and your clone pictures. Although I think I know how you did it, I don't think I can ever pull that off.

 

 

Bloody Amazing work! icon14.gif

How do you do clones? Just keep the camera in the exact same spot, and take a series of pictures and merge them?

 

Is it possible to do it with a digital camera or do you have to have a proper decent expensive motherf*cker?

 

All of the pics in the topic rule. Hell No.., You should change clothes or something for one pic, Like, you have the clone pic where you're about to punch the guy in the corner, Perhaps try different clothes. If.. This makes sense. I'm tired as f*ck.

Thanks dude. And yeah, you need a tripod for sure as the camera must stay in the same spot. You can use any camera for this, not an expensive motherf*cker. tounge.gif

 

Heres a tutorial to have a look at: http://www.energyface.com/tutorial-how-to-clone-people/

 

Its really simple when you know how.

 

And im deffinatly going to do one with different clothes, its a must. biggrin.gif

I've been trying for ages to do that cloning thing, But I can't get it to work. The lighting goes dodgy on one of the pics, And I can't do much in Photoshop to fix it confused.gif

I sorted the lighting by doing this:

1. Take a brush

2. Select airbrush

3. Select Erase from the drop-down menu where the default is normal

4. Erase around the object/human

 

I don't want to start PS, so I just explained quickly. I hope it clears it up though.

Hey buddy.  This may help you with your cloning video - depending on what you know already.

Be liberal on the feather!  For the best effect, get some foreground in there that extends over both (all three? Four? smile.gif ) shots.

Cheers buddy, i'll be sure to read up on it.

 

@GTA1, you only really need to use one whole image, the other amount of them are just cut around the person as Ed stated.

 

But maybe a quicker way, which I think is the way I do it. I get the Poly Lasso Tool and go around the edge of myself, then click Select - Inverse, and delete. Do this on the layers above the full one, and you will get put onto that, easy.

TIP TIP TIP:

 

If you set the camera to always have the same settings (like ISO, aperture, exposure time, white balance, etc) and only adjust the focus, chances are your photos will blend better because they will... have the same settings. Plus, constant artificial light (a strong and "as white as possible" light) works great to avoid light problems. Because, say you use a window, and say clouds are passing in front of the sun. Your photos will become slightly darker there.

 

That's what I'd consider when taking that sort of photos.
