Hi, This is my first post.
On Brad Kremer video Hayaku: A Time Lapse Journey Through Japan,
https://vimeo.com/12112529 at :22,
What is the technique effect use at :22 (men in the street, background is moving but not the front subject)
Is-it a new 3D effect with Photoshop or Afrter effect.
What is the name of this type effect.
Could we find some tutorial on Adobe.
Thanks for whatching and respond
As others have said this is a standard technique that involves separating foreground and background elements to layers, filling in some holes, and then arranging the layers in 3D space and animating camera position.
You can do this in After Effects, Blender, C4D ... just about any app that has 3D layers. It's called 2.5D or Camera Mapping or Projection Mapping, or "The kid stays in the picture" but it wasn't invented by Ken Burns.
Disney used this technique in their first feature cartoons by having separate background and foreground cells drawn and photographing them by overlaying the animation cells to give the illusion of perspective and parallax changes in a 2d image. The "Ken Burns Effect" was probably first done by Georges Méliès in films like his film "A Trip To The Moon" to combine painted elements and backdrops into a moving image, but someone else probably beat him to it. Ken was lucky enough to get a grant to produce a well received film comprised mainly of camera moves on still images so now the technique is commonly credited to him. I was cutting up historical photographs, gluing them to popsicle sticks, and moving a 16mm Bolex through the scene in 1970 for my first documentary project "Transit at the Crossroads". This isn't new stuff but AE and Photoshop have made it a lot easier. There are a bunch of tutorials that will give you a step by step walk through.
What a beautiful story about your film!
Wow. Melies strikes again!
Was that Fleischer (of Betty Boop fame) who first did that for Disney?
Also, the best example of the Ken Burns effect I have seen was the very same film that inspired Ken Burns in his youth to explore so deeply what can be done with still images in a documentary.
That film is City of Gold, by the National Film Board of Canada, which shows what great things are possible when GOVERNMENT, yes government, funds the arts.
Great film that City of Gold.
I'm also finding this 50 hours of video training by Chris and Trish Meyer in their "After Effects Apprentice" training to be a great way to get started when used in conjunction with their book by that same name.
Your tutorial "Creative Cow 2.5D" give me one of the best exemple of this effect I was looking for.
This was realy helpful, I will need to practice a lot because I am not an expert with AE.
