Hey! I found a thread on making characters appear to fly that was very useful, but it was a bit old, and some of the tricks no longer work (or at least I can't get the 'ctrl z' method to work anymore). I made a test run of some of the different options, and am showcasing them here:



Now, is there any other technique that has worked for you, that you would be willing to share? I mean, my main guy in the story I want to tell is a flyer, so as many different ways of demonstrating flying characters as possible would be personally helpful.


(Oh, the twist that I hadn't seen before that I added was a camera move towards the 'fly on spot' character. Then, a background over another character's shoulder with the video as texture makes it seem as though the flyer is approaching. Just a twist on the original theme, but I think it has potential)

EDIT: Forgive the awful lighting on the third clip. In a final, I would obviously adjust that, but it exported much darker than I anticipated. Geez, get off my back, you don't know me, you don't know what I been through! ;D

Nice stuff megadots. While not strictly flying, I did come up with a way to make the cape flap about in the still flying pose (near the bottom of the post) :

Green screening works although my first attempts were not great due to my video editor but if you have a good editor and can get the lighting right green screening is "way cool" I used ziggy's method with some refinements to get better cape action and did a green screen. flight sequence that was kinda not bad.


this is the best greenscreen i have done the next one after due to a night scene was kind of meh (need pro editor tools for that)
