My Work Back

Visual FX - Interacting with CG elements

The main purpose of this project was for live video to interact with CG elements. I started by setting the scene and filming the video of myself. I then modelled the holographic glove (OMNI tool) using 3D studio max and animating its movements using my live video as a backdrop.

Next was to import the video and 3D model into After effects where I could use masking to make it look like my arm went inside the glove. Once this was complete, the holographic screen and effects could be added such as motion capture and lighting.
