Tutorial 3D objects - iMovie / After Effects / Final Cut + Free 3D animation software (Tut 6 of 13)

Take your videos to the next level!!! You will need Google Sketchup and a Screen Capture program (I use ScreenFlow, but better ones exist) If you need green screen help in iMovie, watch these: All iMovie Green Screen problems resolved and explained www.youtube.com Even More Green Screen Help with Position and Location and Slow-mo Bullet Tutorial www.youtube.com How to Remove Black Backgrounds (aka key our black backgrounds) www.youtube.com Getting rid of the mouse arrow: Keep the mouse arrow to the edges of the screen as you maneuver your object, it should be either not noticeable or easily cropped out. I would go with cropping it out. iMovie has some cropping out features for green screen. For Adobe After Effects and Final Cut, the mouse arrow is no problem if the mouse never eclipsed the object. Can I make an animation with an object? Example: How do you put a moving dinosaur like Jurassic Park in your videos? -I don’t think a full animated dinosaur is possible. There is a google sketup plugin called “sketchy physics.” I don’t have much experience in it, but here is one video I found: www.youtube.com The science fiction video: Search “DARK SCI FI SCENE with entrance/bridge/exit & 4podcarriers” in the “Google sketchup warehouse” My Star Wars intro: www.youtube.com iMovie tutorial series: How to Remove Black Backgrounds (aka key our black backgrounds) www.youtube.com Multiple Picture in Picture in iMovie Tutorial www.youtube.com All iMovie Green Screen problems

    You can’t with just google sketchup unfortunately. Those things are beyond my current abilities. You would need a different computer program to do it well and it likely isn’t free.

    If you want an animation or any rotational camera movement, your file must be a movie file.

    I am not too knowledgeable on making these 3D objects animated. (like making a movie similar to Toy Story) You can potentially do a combination of both your ideas.
    What I do is first do all the movement in Sketchup and use the screen recording software. That video file is then imported into my movie editing software, and I treat it like any other green screen element. I hope that makes sense. Ask another question if you are still confused. 🙂

    This is amazing, so clear and helpful! I have wanted to do this for years, thanks 🙂

    OK, first thing, great video. Now, I do have a couple of questions. Is the idea here to import a 3D model, animate it and then record the animation with ur screen capture Software then import into After Effects or similar??? or are you just using Sketch up to import the model and then the screen capture tool records you moving it in different directions, import it into After Effects (or similar) and THEN animate it???? Please set me straight. Thanks Mate
