View Full Version : ArkII Roamer Video

ArkII was a live action kids program from the 70's. I modeled the Roamer vehicle from the show and added it to a video that I shot. You can see the video here:


I also have a question/comment. Originally, I used motion blur on the vehicle renders but it complete threw the motion tracking out of alignment. Is that normal? The footage is really shaky so I'm guessing that might be a factor as well.

Great track and integration. It'd be really cool with more time and attention paid to the actual 3D object.

On the motion blur, maybe turn it down some if it's distracting or doesn't match the footage you're comping onto. Turning it all the way off normally isn't the way to go as there's almost always some motion blur in a shaky plate.

Thanks for the feedback. The model was probably not the best choice.

I think the problem is that the blur happens between frames. The object has to be at a certain location at that frame but it's center gets moved. Reducing the blur can help but then the blur may not match the footage. The images show an exaggerated example.
