View Full Version : Complex request - split frame sequence/matrix effect

I have read many threads where people were trying to accomplish a Matrix-like effect, where the camera can zoom around a frozen frame. It would be really cool if there were a way to have multiple keyframe sequences, or let keyframe sequences be set by object. This way, you could have all action stop EXCEPT the camera.

Bake the displacements and the motions, generate a second scene with the changes, do your specialfx in there.

Personally, I prefer LW as a story-telling animation program, than a special fx generator.

Check out Worley's Polk collection. It includes a bonus plugin pack, "The Henry Clay Collection" that contains a plugin called Objblur which has a "Frozen In Time" option. It's pretty darn cool because it lets you move the camera around the frozen scene with the original motion blur still in there which really enhances the freeze-time look.

I am doing somthing like that at the moment. I just saved a copy of the scene, and deleted all of the keframes appart from the one i wanted to spin around, then re did the camera work. It took some time, but works just as well, as all the settings are still there.
