    In response to Donny's jawa ending.the high shot of the jawas examining the plunder,could be followed by a shot looking
    up to a greyjedi shutting down a saber and turning away after betraying the sand jedi.

    to put in.

    No, I only use Photoshop for stills. After Effects is faster for video. Right now I'm having one hell of a time trying to rotoscope a saber burn on the stormtrooper's armor.

    LOL, that's exactly what i'm doing! The painful part is basically motion tracking. I have to adjust the burn mark frame by frame in AE.

    bleh i know what you mean...

    just thinking here what if next time you apply like a bright green tape to the area and then key it out later with the effect? that would take care of the motion tracking then you could just clean up the effect

    That might work, but it doesn't help right now...maybe when we do our fanfilm on Endor...

    James: I've already offered 2 more jawas.

    Jon: How could you NOT know?! It was all over the thread about going out to the dunes!

    I didn't know our events were all filmed? Can we see it at the next meeting? I know JediG60Racer would like a slide show/multimedia show about the club and video clips of events would be great to throw in!

    OOOOO! I could be a BAD GUY! How cool is that!

    Definitely wear my grey robes for that shot.

    No pressure, Donny. If it doesn't work out I'll wait for the next film. :)

    Figured I should post it here, too. It's not that big a deal, but the "o" in my name should be an "a".
