Cloud Fly-Through Video from 3D Composite of 4 Photos

Planet5D picked up the below video (crafted by Jeff Farmer) in Apple Motion using a 3D composite of 4 still images of clouds captured with a Canon Rebel T2i.

This is a great little technique that’s doable with basic 3D compositing skills in Motion or After Effects, or any other editor that gives you access to z-space adjustments. ┬áThe great thing about working with still images in 3D composites is the ability to reframe the massive images for delivery at 1920 x 1080 resolution. ┬áThe T2i delivers a 5K still image, so there’s a lot of room to work with or only to use a portion of the image for no loss of quality in an HD video.

If you are interested to learn more about this kind of work, there’s a great tutorial on some very basic 3D compositing at VideoCopilot.net.

Looks beautiful except for the fact that the planet should not get bigger as the camera flies through the clouds unless the planet is close enough to fly through too.
