    Here guys, hopefully this works :)

    I took some footage of Deb saber fighting while at the long line and rotoscoped it :)

    What do ya think?

    [link=http://graphicd.fanshawec.on.ca/g2003/monk/Temp.mov]Right click and save as[/link] :)

    EDIT: This isn't a technically finished piece. Theres a missed frame and over laping, but what can ya do ;)

    You may need the latest quicktime :) If this doesn't work for you leave me a note and I'll plop up a DivX AVI too!

    That's awesome, great job.
    I espically like the look Deb gives the camera.
    Kinda like she's saying..."Um...Are we done yet?"

    The rotoscoping looks good! And now I know what Deb looks like.

    Here's a roto test of my own (Sorenson 3, I think): [link=http://www.taosap.net/nosound.mov]Clickie[/link]

    It's two of my cousins, one with my lightsabre, the other with two croquet mallet handles. It was pretty spontaneous, hence the wickets still in the grass. Finally, as the clip is titled, it has no sound. Someday I'll work that out...

    Oh, right, I did see Deb in those pictures. I knew that... [face_blush]

    Yeah, pre-packaged lens flares 8-}
    Next time I'll figure out a better way for the flashes. How did you do yours?

    For the sabres I used Ryan Wieber's tutorial with the multiple layers, gaussian blur, and colour balance. Oh, and of course lots of little white lines...[link=http://www.theforce.net/theater/postproduction/sabres/sabertutorials.html]This one[/link]

    PS. Fortunately, Robbie (with the orange sabre) doesn't mind being blue and slightly transparent now... ;)

    Well the one instance I can think of off the top of my head is the floor during Jedi vs. Sith battle in TPM.

    Gee Deb, that video looks familiar.

    Personally I prefer the Nerf sabres and my Rendition of Fates.


    ;)
