rnrnA short clip I made while experimenting with averaging track points in After Effects to create solid, precise tracks. In the past when I have motion tracked… it always seems slightly off. I have now learned that if you track several times over, and average that data together – you get a rock-solid tracking point.rnrnI then created some quick motion-type pieces to follow the these points. It took several layers of compositing to create the illusion of depth caused by things passing in front of one another. I added a light-streak to the back of Tyler’s light to see if I could match the live video with an object in 3D space (the particle emitter for the light).rnrnThis video clip was shot using a Flip Mino HD, which was not the best to try and track with. The motion blur made it incredibly difficult to find solid track points. I’m sure I will try more of this using my XL-H1.rnrnThis was a fun experiment that I learned a great deal from. I’m excited at some new possibilities that will come of this new workflow.
rnrnI revamped the online store on MotorMavens. Using Big Cartel’s pre-existing shopping cart template, I was able to tweak everything to fit within the exiting framework of the site. Now combining shipping and accommodating international customers with overseas shipping options is MUCH easier.rnrnhttp://store.motormavens.com
rnrnAnother logo design that saw MANY revisions and explorations. The final version was found in the second set of variations… the first and third sets being drastically different from this batch – but altogether vital to the creative process. Further proof that your first idea is not always your best.
