Hello everyone!!It’s my new video training “FUN WITH ROTOSCOPING(Level-1). It will be my first training series for this blog.I was working on this training from last couples of month.And finally its about to end and soon i’ll release this training for all my subscribers and followers and specially for those who are new to this visual effect field.
Rotoscoping is always a tedious and hard working task for everyone and nobody wants to do that but the fact is when you’re working on any kind of vfx shot you need this technique to complete the shot.keeping this thing is in my mind i decided to make a video training for beginner those want to become a visual effects artist and want to learn rotoscoping from scratch.I tried to add some fun elements to the training because i don’t want to cover all the principles and production techniques in a boring way.
Coming Soon – FUN WITH ROTOSCOPING(Level-1). specially for beginners *THIS TRAINING WILL BE FREE

I always wondering that why everyone is always fascinated with visual elements including me.But the main reason for this is the unique style and techniques which impress us visually and here’s the example of most fascinating thing for me as a visualiser called “Cinemagraph”
The term “cinemagraph” was introduced by U.S. photographers Kevin Burg and Jamie Beck, who used the technique to animate their fashion and news photographs beginning in early 2011.
I first noticed this kinda thing when i watched harry portter series they used this thing which looks very amazing at screen i can say very “FASCINATING”
Thanks to the artist’s who introduced this thing to us. Cheers for them
Ended with my recent vfxshot film “KEEPSMILE” for creativeminds2017 competition. Again we have 90sec to showcase our film making & VFX techniques. It took approx one an a half month for completing this 90sec vfx film.Hopefully again we win in this category.Soon i’ll post the breakdown,storyboard and hole process how we did it.
Till then Play with Visual effects #vfxforever #keepsmile:D
That Year was 2010 when i decided to compile all my small idea’s together into a reel which you can say my first so called “SHOWREEL” because in our field if you don’t have anything to show that means you are wasting your time here you need to change your taste.
For freelancing ,official job and society respect only one thing is required which is your reel & portfolio.i did lots of Rnd work before making my first reel .i asked google “how to make a good reel?” and i got some blog those were saying that your reel length should be in between 1 min to 2 min maximum. although i was very confuse because i had lots of experiments which i have done for my VFX & Filmmaking. But after reading the blog on google i decided to add some of my best footage’s on my first reel. I knew that my video quality was not too good but i just wanted to show my visual experience on small duration. Yes it was not easy but i tried so much for it.Then finally i made this reel.It took one month for final compilation.After rendering i wanted to see the response of my mentors and friends for my reel.and i got the positive response from their side.But it was now the END
Soon i received the best comment from someone who was taking my interview for his company names “PI studio,Hyderabad” they wanted 5 junior compositors and motion designers for their company.while i was showing my reel to him and my reel intro was began he paused the video and said who did this title sequence at the beginning .I said “Sir,I did this on 3ds max and after effects” then he said to me” Are you ready to re locate” i said ” Why not Sir”and i got the job as a junior compositor in Hyderabad.:DDDDD
I shared this incident with you all because i wanted to tell you that always believe on your works and experiments. no matter how small and silly it was… carry on experimenting new things
“BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND YOU CAN DO UNBELIEVABLE THINGS”
whenever i have free time i do this thing because motion design is something which i love the most after VFX and film-making.I created this GIF animation just to refine my animation principles which we used to apply on our motion works.and if i get the opportunity to share this thing to anyone i always start with this practice .i thought if you want to create good motion design for professional world you need to focus on only one thing which is “Graph Editor“no matter which tool you guys are using because animation principles n graph editor would be same. and Gif animation is best way so far on 2d medium. But the real question is how to do this thing at initial level ? So friends if you really want to do any thing you just require one thing which is the zeal of doing that thing desperately . By profession i am not dealing with motion design but whenever i get time i do some graph editor practice by making this kind of GIF animation in after effects which gives me idea to observe more deeply, every time i just give myself a task to create 3-4 sec GIF animation clips on different 2 Themes may be sometime it will be text falling or some time it’s shape morphing or maybe any small logo animation.when you play on little ideas & concepts it always give you a new dimensions of thinking and make your mind more creative.Because you making it spontaneously .always starts with small exercises like ball animation,pendulum exercise etc. and remember that TIME & SPACE is everything in animation.there are plenty animation books n resources are available online but i think start with this book of animation called ” The Animator’s Survival Kit- by Richard williams and “Time for animation”
Go and make your own GIF animation and upload it online on www.Giphy.com and share with your friends on social media
Here is the my recent vfx film for one competition created on very short period of time but still won first prize in vfx category.This clip was influenced with one of my favorite film “Kungfu Hustle” i tried to re create that gun shot scene in my way.i planned this scene on one small room with dark lighting condition and shot this film in approx 1 hours .Before i do my shooting i created a rough story board and done some pre -visualization work for the shot which gave me good idea to shot this low budget film.when you don’t have good resources for your movie always do good Rnd work for the movie and plan your movie according to your resources which will gives you the flexibility for do best things.the camera which i used to shot this film was “nikon-D7000′ and that time i only had one lens which was 35mm prime f/1.8. so i planned this shot on prim lens which was again a challenge for me to create any movie through prime lens and i did it,then i moved to vfx and compositing work and change the look n feel of my shot i wanted. Although it was a student competition i learn a lot like always during the process “CHEERS FOR MY TEAM” that’s why i love my teaching profession. hope this blog post will boost your mind to do good and small things on visual communication industry.
“YOUR SMALL TRICK CAN MAKE SOMEONE’S MOVIE BETTER”
In it’s most basic form a matte is an image that tells a second image where to be opaque and where to be transparent. Sometimes this opacity information comes in the form of an “alpha channel”. In this special instance, the transparency information is embedded inside the matte image in question. So, a RGB image, with an embedded alpha channel, actually has 4-channels, not just three: RGBA (Red, Green, Blue and Alpha). The alpha channel embedded in the one file can be used to dictate the transparency in another file. So let’s talk about mattes and alpha channels. Specifically, luma mattes and alpha mattes—what’s the difference? And why would you need to invert a matte?
When you assign a luma matte to your subject image, you are telling the subject to use the lightness values of the matte image as it’s source of transparency. Typically, the areas of the matte that are perfectly white will cause the subject to be completely opaque: 100% visible. Conversely, areas of the matte that are completely black force the opposite: those areas of the subject will disappear completely. Then, if areas of the matte are gray, there will be partial transparency in these areas of the subject.
An action is a series of tasks that you play back on a single file or a batch of files—menu commands, panel options, tool actions, and so on. For example, you can create an action that changes the size of an image, applies an effect to the image, and then saves the file in the desired format.
Actions can include steps that let you perform tasks that cannot be recorded (for example, using a painting tool). Actions can also include modal controls that let you enter values in a dialog box while playing an action.
In Photoshop, actions are the basis for droplets, which are small applications that automatically process all files that are dragged onto their icon.
Photoshop and Illustrator come with predefined actions installed that help you perform common tasks. You can use these actions as is, customize them to meet your needs, or create new actions. Actions are stored in sets to help you organize them.
You can record, edit, customize, and batch-process actions, and you can manage groups of actions by working with action sets.
