Short test of free-standing magnifier lens effect to get a macro close up of the Time Frog's clock eyeverks.
Christine and I made this brief test to see what the lens could do during animation. It enabled us to get an extreme close-up of the eye that my FZ-50's 50mm lens could not on its own.
I mistakenly left the eye flap open on the side for a few frames and decided to try editing out the mistake with PS in post rather than delete the frames. I used the rubber stamp tool on the offending frames and the edits show badly. If/when I need to fix something again, I'll use a clean plate erase technique, like in rig removal, instead. The rubber stamping looks as though it's animated because each frame was cleaned-up differently.
I plan to hang a black curtain between myself and the set so that my reflection won't be seen in the Frog's other eye.
This clip was action batched:
- resized to 1280
- worn texture added as a soft light blend mode
- color shifted in green and cyan (hue (-) and saturation (+))
