TY ChrisV for answering that. I also did get the idea from a friend who saw what I was doing and made the same suggestion you did. I cant tell you how much time I spent trying to move "just" the car and then fill in the rest to match.

As far as the project car, that works. I was planning on doing a tut on color changing, I have found 3 good ways to do it, but was actualy hoping someone else might contribute and have a better idea.

I think the next addition to the tut will be changing color and shaving door handles/ie making a coupe.

Quick question, just wondering if anyone here was willing to do (or try) a photoshop for me, so I have a rough idea about something I have in mind. I'll post more if there's anyone interested in a 'challenge' you may say, thanks.

I'm probably the worst person with Photoshop here, but I could give it a shot...

Alright, well I was thinking a 1988 Chevy S10 with the top removed roadster), double-hump tonneau cover, suicide doors (unless not open in pic), billet grille, clear corner headlights, Cadillac tail lights, rear roll pan, shaved tailgate handle, and a scooped hood lol.

I know that all can't be done in one view, so a view of just the rear would even be good. I also know that'll be hard, so it's alright if you can't/don't want to do it lol.

Tonneau Cover
Caddy Tails
Roll Pan

Do what you can really, I'll be thankful.

Finally finished my rotoscoping project for Media Arts (bonus marks) and found out why it was being so choppy, the camera sucked, and marked thirty second clips as two seconds...so using my sister's camera, here's what I got:

Super Pimping Video

It would help, but when converted to a filmstrip format, it took out all sound...Here's a quick tutorial (figured I should help out a bit too)...

You'll need Adobe Premiere for this...
1.) Using a stick (I wrapped it in blue tape, so it's easier to see), Record your self through any camera, and upload it to your PC. I recommend under 15-20 second, because for my PC it would take 10 minutes to open ~400 frames...

2.) Open Premiere, and start a new project. I put it at Standard 48KHz, but that's just for sound, so set it to whatever you want. Now go to File>Import. Choose your video.

3.) Drag it onto the timeline.

4.) Go to File>Export>Movie (CTRL+M)

Go to Settings..."Filetype: Filmstrip" "Range: Work Area Bar."
Go to "Video" on the side, and set it to the size you wanted (I keep it as is). I suggest putting the framerate at 14.99/15 fps, to keep the size down, but still flowing nicely.

5.) Save the file.

6.) Open it in PhotoShop (be patient, it will take a while). When it opens, should look something like this:

Save it as a .psd. (again be patient)

7.) This parts a real pain in the *** now...Make a new layer (and use only that. Select the line making tool (U), if it isn't the line making tool, right click on the button that was selected, and find it. Change the brush colour to white (R-255, G-255, B-255).

8.) Set the line weight to be about 1/3 to 1/2 of the stick (0.035 for me), and put it at anti-aliased. Zoom in to 300-400%...it's easiest at that magnification, for me at least...wherever you see the stick, paint it white. If you see it blurred, then you use the lasso tool (L), and select the entire burred area, and paint it white:


9.)When you have done this for every frame, saving it every once in a while, open your layers (F7) and go to the layer with all of the lines.

10.) Right click on it and go to blending options. Turn on Color Overlay. Set it to "Blend Mode: Normal" and click on the colour button. Set the colour you want (I used 123,0,0).

11.) For the glowing effect, turn on "Drop Shadow", "Inner Glow", "Outer Glow", and "Inner Shadow".

12.) Go back to "Inner Shadow," and click on the colour at the top, and set it to the same colour you used for the "Colour Overlay."

13.) Go to "Inner Glow" and set the small square with colour to the same colour as the previous 2 settings.

14.) Go to "Outer Glow," and set that to the same colour setting. Now, when you look below it, adjust the Spread and Size to your liking (I use 100% Spread and 5% Size)...Should look something like this:


15.) When you are satisfied, click OK, and save it again.

16.) Now, go to Layer>Flatten Image. Select the entire thing (CTRL+A) and copy it (CTRL+C). Open the original filmstrip (.flm) file, and paste it (CTRL+V)

17.) File>Save As, and save it under a different name, but where it says, "Format", go to "Filmstrip (*.FLM).

18.) We are now done with PS. Open Premiere again, and open your new filmstrip file.

19.) Drag it into the timeline. If you want to add sound, now is the time to do it. When you are finished adding sound and stuff, go to File>Export>Movie. This time you can skip the settings, and just save it.

Voila, it's done.

This can be used for other animations, but I figured Light Sabres was the easiest one (this was the way it was done in the original Star Wars, but by hand, and not PC).

Tell me if you have any questions

Just the white line part, and it was 400 frames for 22 Seconds at 15 fps.

Ok, Now we are going to add some headlights to the civic:

First, open your image of a set of highlights to copy, I choose a ferrari.

Ok, since I did not want the yellow color, I hit Cntl + Shift + U t odesaturate the pic.

Now use the magnetic lasso to grab the section you desire.



Now use Edit -> Transform -> Distort T oget it to where you want.

Now using the cloning tool or the eyedropper and brush, make everything match.


The end result:
