I’ve been trying out Autodesk’s free 3D software 123D Catch, so I thought I’d use it to create a 3D model of myself and then freeze myself in carbonite. I plan to clean up the 3D model, but this turned out better than I was expecting. Even the kids thought it was cool. Unfortunately, they were way too wiggly to capture a decent 3D model of them.
I’ve included a few different views before I applied the final render textures.
Photos from the set of Man of Steel – the new Superman movie due out in 2013. The crew was filming at Union Station in downtown Chicago a block from my office back in September last year. I was able to walk through the set inside Union Station a few times, but security was extremely tight, so I didn’t get to take many photos. During one of my lunchtime walks, I met a few other fans and found out that I missed meeting Zack Snyder by about 5 minutes.
Finally saw The Avengers last night! To prepare for the movie, I filmed the kids in front of a green screen and added them to a scene from the trailer. I rotoscoped the heroes in the front and color corrected, repositioned, and scaled the kids the best I could to blend into the scene. I added a bit of dust from Action Essentials 2 and played around with some of the new 3D text from AE CS6 (just downloaded on Friday) highlighted by an Optical Flare. The 3D text feature looks promising – can’t wait to spend some time learning all the new features.
A test clip to see if I could add a third eye to someone. Vincent also wanted me to “clone” him.
