This effect deals with retiming two halves of a tricky shot so that dirt charges can be composited in with a realistic tempo. We’ll then move on to precomposing the dirt on top and masking out a hole to make it appear that you’re jumping into it.

This totally violates the 180 degree rule. The second shot should’ve been flipped.
180-degree rule, or “not crossing the line.” This means that if a viewer is introduced to a space in which person A is on the right and person B is on the left, the camera should not rotate beyond 180 degrees, because that would invert the relative positions of person A and B (person A would suddenly appear on the left and person B on the right).
I totally agree, I was confused too at first sight!
I noticed this too, confused me and I had to watch back because I noticed something wasn’t right. The whole concept is perfect, but that little bit pushes it out.
Yeah, you’re absolutely right. I never went to film school and I filmed this a year ago so I never knew about the 180 degree rule until after I filmed it. I didn’t mention that in the tutorial simply because I forgot to actually say something about it.
Hello, i write this question in every your tutorial :(, what camera do you use for this footage?
Try the Canon 7d or Sony HD Cam, but really expensive…. me i use a litlle cam hd.
There is part in the duel scene where you had your hands on fire… are you going to make a tut on that one? Thanks in advance.
great tutorial as we might not have footage where we have to edit the mask like you did for the first 9 minutes but it gives people another way to fix footage then having to re-film
Enjoyed the series – an interesting view. This portion, however, seemed to be the weakest of the series. Besides the 180 flip which wasn’t accounted for (one of the two sections needs a horizontal flip), merely masking the actors arms as it thrusts through a wall of upwardly exploding particles doesn’t work. Remember from your high school physics class, you need to account for the reaction of the vertical vectors of the particles to the horizontal vectors of the arms along the thrust line.
Also, as you requested comments and critiques, you could loose the intro’s. I get it that you may want your minute of fame; but, if that’s the case, actually have something to say which is germaine to the tut. You obviously were “winging it” just to have it there — and, believe me, it did nothing to improve your credibility.
These problems aside, the series was worth the watching and your skill and facility with video editing speaks of hundreds of hours of experience.
Ahh I feel silly for not doing that!!! I just now realized! Especially after I thought up this shot with that specific criterion as the main piece of the effect! And yes, I certainly do remember my high school physics, I hold a degree in Engineering after all ;). Hence why I find that particularly embarrassing.
And of course! I definitely welcome comments! I see your opinion about the intros and understand your point. My reasoning was that on a video 30 minutes long, 20 seconds or so couldn’t hurt. That and I didn’t know what to say that wouldn’t be better off said in the tut itself walking through the make up of each shot. And of course partly so that I could get my face out there, but I’m definitely hoping it leads to more than a mere minute of fame. I’m going to spend the next year trying to see if my short videos can get a decent audience on youtube. If not? Well then I will have known that I have tried.
I cant watch this tutorial. Why you delited it? НЕLP . Sorry my English is bad. http://ae.tutsplus.com/tutorials/vfx/burst-through-the-earths-surface-in-style/
