This is a VFX test of the Bullet Time Effect from The Matrix. Created in After Effects and Hitfilm, but techniques could easily be applied in Hitfilm As well. Let me know what you guys think
Good stuff, man!
Great effects, but worrying on many other levels.
@Digitaldave Agree with everyone else about the level of your VFX, but the 'old man' rose up strong in me and I couldn't help worrying about that gun and hoping it was a fake. Scared me...!
@digitaldave Great job. I like that you took the time to properly animate the ejection of the spent cases. you also rendered a believable muzzle flash with heat distortion.
Based on the camera angles, I am going to assume that it was just you and the other person involved in the shot.
@tddavis The replica Beretta was definitely a fake.
@BobDimarzio, wasn't the gun itself so much; it was the "script" that worried me.
@Palacono It troubled me as well.
Haha thanks, as this was shot in my backyard (no pun intended) I knew fully that I could use the prop gun safely without any people being concerned. If I were to shoot in public then I would of course have an orange tip on my guns
Sorry if it came across as morbid, I'm down in Australia so this kind of humour is pretty common.
@Digitaldave Apparently others spotted it as dummy gun waaay better than I. I chalk it up to my total cluelessness of firearms, but I was taken in by it.
Cheers man at least that means the prop is convincing
Nice work with the effect . Be good to see you expand on it and add a sequence of shots and movements. You planning to make some thing ?
@Rogyrue Nah its just a vfx test thats all. Although I am currently working on a flash fan film so stay tuned for that
Just found this, nicely done, what was the AE elements? Ie. what was it that you found Hitfilm wasn't doing for you?
@Digitaldave This is awesome! You've done an awesome job on the effects - I'd love to see a breakdown of what you did and how you did it!
