Page 1 : Example 1 In this example, the squirrel has soft but distinct fur. To replicate it takes a bit of time and practice but can be easily accomplished by anyone. This can be done just as well by masking but I prefer the eraser. Use a medium sized soft brush and remove all traces of the background including anything that shows through the fur.
A small soft brush should be used where the fur isnt as thick as around the face, ears and paw. It may take several strokes to accomplish each bit of fur but that adds to the more casual look of the new edge. Vary your stroke direction so that all the fur isnt unrealistically going in exactly the same direction. Have some of them cross over other hairs for a more realistic appearance.
Keep in mind also the varying length of fur that exists on different portions of the animals body. Pull the tip of each one of these hairs to a softer point. This will result in a softer more photographic look. I added a black background to make it easier to see the finished fur. Page 7 Using the same approach for background removal, a soft eraser brush or masking if you prefer, remove the existing background and all areas of fur where the old background was evident.
Keep this edge as soft as possible. I added a black background just to make the work more obvious. Use a single, quick curved stroke again keeping in mind that all hairs do not go in exactly the same direction. Page 9 Add more hair using the same technique. Its a good idea to add additional hair using separate layers for each group.
This will make it easier to smooth out the hairs later especially when they cross over each other. Most of the hairs have been stroked with the smudge tool, as in the squirrel image, with the tips tweaked to make them look more realistic. As you can see, the creation of a reasonable fur effect is fairly simple. It may seem work and time intensive but with a little practice, mostly getting comfortable with the fur strokes, it can be done in fairly short order.
Page 1 : Introduction Hello and welcome to the wonderful world of tweens!!!! Today's lesson: Motion Guides and how they make life so much easier when you're trying to animate stuff. You probably already know about the two different kinds of tweens. That's so NOT what I'm writing about! Motion tweens can be your best friend when you're animating in Flash. But if you're not familiar with motion guides then you're probably working 10 times harder than you need to. So let's take a look at Motion Tweens and Motion Guides.
Page 2: Starting Out - Symbols First of all, when you're doing motion tweens, and pretty much whenever you're working with animation in flash, you have to observe a general habit and rule. There are about a dozen reasons for this, but in the case of motion tweens it's for the sake of file size and communicating with Flash better.
So now let's take a look at an example. Page 3: Beginning A Tween Ok. I've got a gear shape on my main stage, and I've already turned it into a symbol.
I want to make it move from the left side of the stage to the right side. Of course you would.
So at this point I extend the number of frames from 1 to 24 in the Timeline and create a keyframe at the end of it, then place my gear on the other side of the stage. It's tweening! Wow, that's great! But the thrill wears off fast when you realize just how boring it is. Oh yeah! There is! Oooo look at all the goodies! You can adjust the tween type, whether or not the transition remains to scale, the "Ease" of the tween this changes the speed of the tween from beginning to end, say for example you want the gear to start out moving slowly across the stage and pick up speed faster as it reaches its destination, you would choose "Ease In.
Page 5: Settings I want my gear to roll 5 times Clockwise. I have a gear that rolls instead of slides! That's pretty neat. I'm sick of straight lines.
I'd like my gear to look like it's being pushed into the distance along an arc. How can I do this without setting a million motion tweens or going frame-by-frame? Here's where Flash really makes things easy.
I'm going to remove the tween I just made and my keyframe on frame 24 that I had for the previous example, but leave the frames. So now I have 24 untweened frames with only the first frame as a keyframe. To create a motion guide for an object: q q q Highlight the layer on which the object rests. Right-click the layer and select "Add Motion Guide.
It defaults with the same number of frames as its counterpart and the frames are blank. Now to make a guide. I said I wanted the gear to move back along an arc path. So, I'll make a simple arc using the line tool. Even though you can see the guides in the flash interface and on the stage, they will be invisible in the flash movie.
Guides are best used with lines and not shapes, but it's possible to use just about any drawing tool as a guide. Your object will just stick to the edge of a shape, but will follow a line in a more definite way.
Use the line tool, the Bezier Line tool, the pencil tool, or even the outline from the cirle or square tool will work. Experiment and check it out! Page 7: Snapping I have my arc guide now, and I have my symbol. Am I ready to tween? You'll find snapping at times to be a big inconvenience when you don't want it to run, and at times, like now, it'll be very helpful. When snapping is enabled for objects and guides, as you move an object it will naturally gravitate toward the guide in question.
Remember that. By making sure it snaps to the end, I can be pretty sure the path is going to conform to the shape of the arc in my guide layer. I wanted it to look like it was falling back, though, so I can scale the height and width of the gear to make it smaller. Page 9: Results and Properties And here's the result: Cool, right?
It gets cooler. Highlight any frame in the motion tween and then open the Properties Panel again. Now we can do all that neat stuff I wrote about up top to achieve different effects. First I went to the final keyframe again and flattened my gear's height scale. It might seem like a lot to take in but once you get a handle on these fundamentals there's a whole lot of things you can do and it only gets more and more fun.
Keep flashing, stay cool, and enjoy!
Paginated View Page 1 Theres some amazing software out there for panoramic photography. Various software packages warp, stitch and blend sequences of photos so that they ideally look like one big, high-resolution, panoramic shot.
However, getting these shots to turn out perfectly isnt easy when handholding your camera or using a normal tripod, especially when some parts of the image are fairly close to the lens. The issue is parallax, or, to rip something out of the American Heritage dictionary since Im not about to try to explain it myself, an apparent change in the direction of an object, caused by a change in observational position that provides a new line of sight.
To fix this, you need to get the camera to rotate about a specific point that is forward of the screw socket in your camera.
Building your own panoramic head for an SLR isnt too hard or expensive.
Every part here is available at a store like Home Depot. Once you get past some of the misinformation out there, the only really hard part is figuring out the dimensions. On the other hand, you cant mistakenly mess up one of the critical adjustments once youve built it, and the homemade mount is as light as a couple small pieces of wood.
Heres the unit were going to be building: My woodworking skills arent top-notch, but theres really not much need to make it look even this nice. Dont worry about appearance, just get the key measurements close and youll have a fully functional new toy.
Page 2 Before we start, we need to make a guess as to that magic rotation point mentioned previously. This is where the misinformation comes in. The point the camera must rotate about is the entrance pupil, not the nodal point as is often stated. Better yet, who cares what they call it, theres a test to figure it out.
The rotation point entrance pupil is NOT necessarily halfway down the lens. In fact, on many cameras, its not even close to that. So, whats the test to find the entrance pupil? Our mount will hold the camera sideways, but for now its easiest just to hold it horizontally.
Position two objects on a table so that they line up when viewed through your lens a couple of batteries work perfectly for this. Now pan your lens right and left as you normally would. Youll see the objects move relative to each other thats parallax. Now, lets find a better pivot point. Put the tip of the index finger of your left hand somewhere along the bottom of the barrel of the lens.
Now rotate the camera about that point. Try to hold that left hand as steady as possible cmon, youre a photographer, you got steady hands, right? Still see a shift? This photo shows the camera straight ahead, and the batteries aligned: Now the camera is turned to the side.
The alignment is quite close, but not perfect - we can see the left edge of the rear battery poking out: Page 3 Finally, lets get to the actual construction If youre using a tilt and pan head, skip it.
However, if you have a ball head, its a lot easier to include it than try to adjust the ball head every shot.
First, cut a piece of wood for the base. Make it about 5 by 4 12 cm x 10 cm. Next, cut the side. Next, the Place Along Path dialog box will pop up.
