Special effect from XXX:State of the Union
Posted: 01 May 2005 08:56 PM
Ok, I haven't seen this movie, but when I was at the
movie Sahara, sitting through 1/2 a dozen previews,
I noticed this special effect. I don't think this is really
all that close to the real deal...but I only caught
a glimpse, and we are working with certain limitations.

I call it crumble, but my son says I digitized him. In the
movie...they are erasing his identity. This has 3 variations
of the same effect.

ps
No, I don't spend all my time at the movies...maybe twice a year.
The card is a photo of some junk they sent me in the mail, which
clearly states on the back "This is not an actual credit card". Since
they mailed it to me unsolicited...I would say it's fair game.

Excellent - how did you make the card spin in 3d?

Thanks Chris.

I think I gave you perspective3 before, and perspective4
zooms in as it spins. Since these are effects, you could apply
Rotate Perspective 3 AND then Rotate CC(counter clockwise)
to get a twisting effect.(order matters) And since the background
is all black...you can use the black chromakey transition
to overlay the rotating image an any other image you want.
