this is a little tutorial about how to create a “vertigo” effect with a z-push or pull (moving the camera towards or backwards in the shot) timelapse move using after effects.
i show you this technique on a what we call it “Walklapse” timelapse which is pretty much like a stop motion move. that’s the reason for why we also call it a stop motion timelapse. some people call this technique a “Hyperlapse” which is for my taste … you know … sounds like a overhyped mainstream thingy. personally i don’t like this word. don’t know what’s so hyper on this …. it’s a camera move … nothing more or less ;) …. a big one OK …. but still a camera move :)
anyhow … here is one way how you can do a vertigo effect with such a move.
if you wanna see some more Walklapses, Stop Motion Timelapses, Hyperlapses, Freakoutlapses, Alienlapses or what so ever you wanna call these kind of shots here is our USA Trip video from 2012. :-)
here is another little quick tutorial. this time i show a method using after effects to get rid of popping birds which often appear in a timelapse shot. especially when you shoot clouds in a urban environment.
a tutorial that shows a quick method to create a “motion startrails” effect on your star or astro timelapse shots using adobe after effects and only one onboard plugin. the plugin is call “CC Time Blend FX”.
to watch some other examples of trailing stars feel free to watch our night skies video we shot on our vacation trip in the USA back in 2012.
