Pool Distraction

I've had this image in my folder for quite some time - finally got around to it.

It might look the same as other things I've done, but it's actually really different in how it approaches shadows in After Effects. I used two sliders to control everything and everything changed appropriately, in addition the shadows were rigged off the actual cutout layers so adjusting them would automatically update all 3 shadows layers per cutout. I learned quite a bit in what to do and what not to do; definitely had to back track a lot.

With this test, and a couple other bizarre little things I've been testing, a different script is now in super pre-production. The idea I'm going to go with is to not use reshape and instead force the user to use liquify. The intermediary step seems to be causing a lot of questions with new people and the reason for using reshape has outlived its use if I can get shadows involved. I can't say it will replace J&G, since it's purpose is slightly different.

Two versions: Extended scene and just BE versions.

This was the first time I've worked with 4K footage while using Re:flex, it definitely hurts the computer. I'm sorry for the jump cuts in the extended version, but to get it to make sense it kind of required it. If you watch the source video the jump cuts are really jarring, so I did what I could to tone them down without causing some position changes during cuts. The 4K really saved me in the end with the shadows, I took too many shortcuts, but after resizing you can't really see them.

Another age swap thing!

I spent a long time transitioning the ages in Photoshop and wanted a way to show off the details, but I think that ended up being more of a distraction.

There is a whole image set with pictures like these and I wanted to make a whole story, but after the time it took to adjust just one image I lost interest. So use your imagination!

Trying out not using gfycat, but purely imgur. Not that I have anything against gfycat, I'm just lazy.

I made a faster version (listed above) if the slow version is too slow for you.

I just wanted to play with the frills on the bottom - everything else I got pretty lazy about.
