How to Create a Pen Camera in Adobe After Effects

first_imgLearn how you can place your camera’s point of view on the tip of a pen (or anything) in After Effects with this video tutorial.Top image via Galymzhan Abdugalimov.As cameras have gotten smaller (without sacrificing quality), filmmakers have begun finding creative ways to use them that would have been impossible before. An example is the 5D Mk II on the barrel of a rifle in Act of Valor or a 7D on the edge of a shovel in Breaking Bad.Image via AMC.While cameras have become small enough to attach to tools, we may still be a few years out from seeing a camera that can actually film from the POV of a pen at broadcast quality. However, you can still pull off this trick in post-production with only a few simple steps.Before we jump into the tutorial, if you know that you’re going to apply this effect when you’re filming, you want to make sure you have a clear shot of the pen tip, and to make sure that it stays in focus so we can track it more easily in post-production. You also want to film at the highest resolution possible, as the shot will end up cropped after we apply the camera layer. Most importantly, make sure to frame the pen so it looks like the camera is on top of it to some extent. The MethodCreate a new composition with the footage, and find when the pen first touches the paper and when it stops touching it.If the tracker panel isn’t open, go to Window and select Tracker.Then hit Track Motion, and you’ll see the layer window.Set your track point at the nib or tip of the pen, and then hit analyze forward. The tracker may have a bit of trouble following the tip because when the ink hits the paper, the pen moves away — sometimes the tracker thinks that the black ink is the pen tip. If your tracking point loses focus, go back and manually adjust the tracking.When you have successfully tracked the movement, create a new null object, make sure that it’s the target, and hit apply.We are then going to add a new camera layer (the default setting is fine), and we’re going to parent the camera layer to the null object. To create the magic, we then turn our pen clip into a 3D layer by clicking this icon.We now have the camera following the tip of the pen as if it were attached to the pen itself. However, we also have a video clip that jumps around the composition and shows a lot of negative space.As I said, it is better to film in 4k if you can because we can simply change the composition to 1080p and crop out the negative space. If you don’t have the option of shooting in 4K, try to frame your shot with a bit of open space, so you can increase the scale of the clip without losing too much of the pen.There we go. A simple but very cool technique.last_img read more

Why Salesmanship Matters

first_imgYour dream client doesn’t have any way to know whether your company is better than your competitor’s. Nor are they likely to look for objective information to discern the differences. Trying to gain an advantage by starting with your company is ineffective because it doesn’t provide any real, actionable insights your dream client can use to decide.Level 1 is a ZeroYou believe that your product or service or solution is markedly better than your competitors. They believe that theirs is better. Both of you spend time trying to differentiate from your competitors in some meaningful way, including trying to tie what you sell to any preferences your dream client discloses. Remember, your dream client has no objective way to determine which of your solutions would better serve them, having never experienced either. You don’t help by providing them with information they can find on a website or sell sheet.Proof Providing isn’t ProofMaybe you provide your prospective client with references, people at companies that will vouch that you are an excellent partner. Your competitor may also provide a similar list, neither of you being so short-sighted as to provide any names and numbers of people who might say something that harm’s your chances of winning their business. What you believe to be proof isn’t strong evidence that your dream client should buy from you.You Are the ExperienceWhat, then, does your dream client have to go on when deciding whether to buy from you or your competitor?First, they have the experience of working with you throughout the process. They are getting an idea of who has the best idea about why they need to change, how they need to change, and what’s important to them. They also get a feel for what it is going to be like to work with you and your company, whether you are collaborative, whether you can be trusted, and how you are going to respond to challenges.Second, because deciding to buy from you is going to be visible to a lot of people on their team, they are gauging whether you are going to be acceptable—or better still, impressive—to the people you are going to interact with inside their company. Not only do you need to help them build consensus around change and the right solution, you are also being vetted to see whether the system is going to reject you.You are the element of your company that your dream client is going to have the most experience with before they make a decision to buy from you or your competitor. Even if they use a spreadsheet to pretend that they are making an objective decision based on measurable criteria, you are a large part of their decision. This means you have to up your game as it pertains to creating a preference to work with you and your company.You are, now more than ever, one of the largest components of the value proposition.last_img read more

Application for England coaching role was laughed at says Flintoff

first_imgManchester: Former Ashes-winning all rounder Andrew Flintoff said he once applied for the England head coach role in 2014 but claims his email was dismissed as a joke. “A few years ago I applied for the England coaching job — we were getting beat, I was in the office and thought, ‘I’m going to apply'”, Flintoff told BBC’s Test Match Special during the fourth test at Old Trafford on Friday. “I wrote an email for the interview, a month passed and I’d heard nothing. I chased it up, then I got a phone call saying they thought it was somebody taking the mick.” Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhFlintoff’s England career earned him cult status. The highlight came with his series-winning contributions with bat and ball during the thrilling 2005 Ashes at home to Australia. He was captain in 2006-07 when Australia inflicted emphatic revenge with a 5-0 hammering but was also part of the 2009 Ashes winning side. His off-field antics also made headlines, particularly at the 2007 World Cup in West Indies when he reportedly had to be rescued after falling off a pedalo following a night out — an incident that saw him stripped of the vice-captaincy and fined.

Nissans directors say governance reforms to bring job cuts

YOKOHAMA, Japan — The executives charged with strengthening governance at Nissan are saying extensive job cuts are coming, designed to drive a recovery at the Japanese automaker.Nissan’s brand image has been battered by a scandal over alleged financial misconduct by its former chairman, Carlos Ghosn.Motoo Nagai, a former banker and new outside director overseeing audits, told reporters Wednesday that the job cuts will be under a new “jump” recovery plan.

Worlds smallest countries step up to plate for UN AIDS campaign

At a luncheon in New York this week, representatives of the four governments confirmed to UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Executive Director Ann Veneman a $140,000 donation ($35,000 from each), marking the first time they have pooled resources to support the agency and the first time that Monaco and San Marino have become government donors to the agency through earmarked funds.Monaco, the smallest of the four, only measures 1.95 square kilometres, just three times the size of the Washington Mall, the wide promenade leading from the United States Capitol towards the Washington Monument obelisk, and has a population of about 32,000. By contrast, Gabon covers more than 267, 000 square kilometres with a population of some 1.4 million. The contribution is the first donation to UNICEF’s Unite for Children, Unite Against AIDS campaign that is specifically ear-marked for Gabon.Gabon is stepping up its efforts to address the severe impact of HIV/AIDS on children and recently created a Ministry for AIDS.Unite for Children, Unite Against AIDS is a global partnership campaign to alert the world to the fact that children are missing from the global AIDS agenda. It provides a platform for urgent and sustained programmes, advocacy and fundraising to limit the impact of HIV/AIDS on children and help halt the spread of the disease. Convened by UNICEF and involving partners from every sector of the global community, the campaign outlines a child-based approach to holding the world to its promises to reverse the spread of HIV/AIDS. It offers mechanisms for a faster and stronger response by all those who can make a difference from the community level up. read more

Malaysian leader issues call at UN for better understanding of Muslim humiliation

Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, addressing the second day of the General Assembly’s annual debate, said this humiliation “is the root cause for the loss of trust and confidence between the Muslim world on one side and the Judeo-Christian civilization on the other side.”He said it was particularly dispiriting that the greatest discord in the world exists between the followers of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, “who had in fact shared a common beginning, which was the religion of Abraham.”Mr. Badawi called on all sides to strive harder to take part in sincere dialogue, instead of pre-judging the position of certain countries as “evil” or engaging in name-calling.He then focused on the Middle East, where he said recent events across the region – from Palestine and Lebanon to Iraq and Afghanistan – have “helped make what may once have been extremist opinions part of the Muslim mainstream. The Muslim world certainly sees all these as a complicity to humiliate Muslim countries and Muslim societies.”Citing the ongoing occupation of the Palestinian territories and the armed conflict with Hizbollah in Iran, he said “the actions of Israel in the Middle East are being supported, either openly or tacitly, supposedly in defence of the Judeo-Christian tradition against the spread of radical militant Islam, thus legitimizing all of its actions, no matter how brutal.”Maumoon Abdul Gayoom, the President of Maldives, also voiced dismay at “a resurgence of the vilification of Islam and Muslims,” stressing that the religion preaches moderation and not extremism.During his speech, Mr. Gayoom also took up the subject of economic development, noting that recent progress means the Indian Ocean island chain is poised to leave behind its status as a ‘least developed country.’The Maldivian leader said these economic advances have occurred at the same time as “a major political transformation” across the archipelago, especially in the areas of human rights, media freedom and judicial reform.Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa devoted much of his address to the continuing conflict between Government forces and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), which he said “has been terrorizing our people for over two decades.”Mr. Rajapaksa said his Government was willing to talk to the LTTE, either directly or through an intermediary, to try to find a solution to the conflict through dialogue instead of military action.Acknowledging that some of the concerns of minorities in Sri Lanka have “deep roots,” the President said a consultative process has begun to develop constitutional proposals to meet those concerns. read more

Qatar clinch semifinal together with Spain France and Poland

← Previous Story BOOM, BOOM, Salinas – Chilean star scored 29 goals for 24 hours Next Story → Marco Oneto about Chilean handball future: Our master plan – to be on level of Argentina and Brazil For the first time since 2005, when Tunisia made historical success, non-European team are qualified for the semi-finals of the World Championship. Qatar will play for the final against Poland, after Valero Rivera boys beat Germany 26:24…That will be the first couple of semi-final on Friday 18.30 local time, while in the second match will face France against Spain.Croatia vs Poland 22:24 (10:12)A greater will to win and goalkeeper Slawomir Szmal were the keys for the third Polish ticket to a World Championship semi-final since 2007. Croatia did not manage to maintain an intermediate three-goal lead.The first half was largely even, while Poland had the better finish, ahead by two goals. Then the Croats turned the tide, producing a 6:1 series to lead 16:13. Poland struck back, retaking the lead ten minutes before the final buzzer. Still nothing was decided and the Croats even seemed to be on the winners’ way when Zlatko Horvat netted in for a 21:20 lead. But it would be short-lived.Thanks to three unanswered strikes by Chrapkowski, Syprzak and their top scorer Mariusz Jurkiewicz and two spectacular Szmal saves, Poland stormed into the semi-final.Qatar vs Germany 26:24 (18:14)The incredible success story of hosts Qatar continues with their unlikely journey now taking them to the final four. Tonight it was thanks largely to the saves by their goalkeeper duo Danijel Saric and Goran Stojanovic, who pulled the German teeth.The 1:0 start was the Germans’ first and only lead. Shortly after the hosts took full control, forging ahead to leads of 6:3, 13:7 and 16:9. While Zarko Markovic was nearly unstoppable on offence, the Germans also missed too many clear opportunities to change the game’s momentum. But they showed strong morale and character in the second half, narrowing a seven-goal deficit to 19:20.Again Saric, Markovic (six goals in total) and top scorer Rafael Capote (eight goals) took full responsibility, saving the lead for Qatar and supported by the frantic fans on the stands.Germany could not reduce the gap to less than two goals and left the field empty-handed. Their top scorer was Uwe Gensheimer with five goals, while their best player was goalkeeper Silvio Heinevetter with 11 saves.Denmark vs Spain 24:25 (11:11)In this rematch of the 2013 World Championship final (won by Spain 35:19), a last-second goal by Joan Canellas decided the most exciting thriller of the quarter-finals. The two sides were even for 60 minutes, taking turns with the lead. And just as the fans were preparing to see extra-time, Cannelas found a gap to score the winning goal with two seconds remaining.No team managed to force ahead to more than a two-goal difference through the entire 60 minutes.The outstanding player of the match was Spanish wing Valero Rivera junior who scored 10 goals from 11 attempts. And like his father Valero sen., will play in the semi-final.Slovenia vs France 23:32 (10:18)Here, the first 13 minutes had already decided the unequal encounter. Thanks to the saves by goalkeeper Thierry Omeyer (18 in total) and the needle-pin counter attacks, France were ahead 7:1 and led 18:10 at the break. When the lead hit double figures for the first time at 20:10, the deal was sealed.Slovenia, a semi-finalist in 2013, reduced the margin briefly at 20:24, which only forced France into once again taking the match seriously.Luka Zvizej (Slovenia) and Daniel Narcisse (France) were the top scorers with six goals each. read more

Avengers Endgame postcredit scene explained Spoilers

first_imgAvengers: Endgame posterTwitterAvengers: Endgame movie will release worldwide on April 26. Ahead of its worldwide release, the movie was released in China and fans were left in shock to see that there was no mid-credit or post-credit scenes in the feature. However, there was something else and here we are going to discuss that for all of you.Major spoiler for Avengers: Endgame:The mid-credit and post-credit sequences have become a tradition in Marvel movies. Usually, viewers leave the theaters whenever the end credits start to roll but not the Marvel fans. When an MCU movie ends, fans stick to their seats to enjoy the mid-credit and post-credit sequences. Almost all the times, these mid-credit and post-credit sequences reveal what to expect from the next feature film.For example, in the 2018 release Avengers: Infinity War’s post-credit sequence, we saw Nick Fury sending an SOS to Captain Marvel. This gave us something to look forward to in the following months. Whereas, the mid-credit sequence of Captain Marvel showed Carol Danvers coming back to planet Earth to join the Avengers in their fight against Mad Titan Thanos.But Marvel fans will be disappointed after learning that there are no mid-credit or post-credit sequence in Avengers: Endgame movie. Tom Holland on the poster of Avengers: EndgameInstagramAs we all know, Avengers: Endgame is finally bringing closure to the ongoing Marvel’s phase 3. There were reports that Spider-Man: Far From Home will actually be the end of Phase 3 so fans will be hoping to see something in the end.To the fans’ surprise, when the Avengers: Endgame will release this weekend, they will find an audio stinger at the end, when the Marvel logo appears. The metal hitting metal sounds may suggest that it is Tony Stark who is actually forging his first Iron Man armor — the one he made in the very first Iron Man movie. As of now, that metal hitting metal sound is open to interpretation and fans can even come up with their own theories about it.As of now, we can simply wait for Kevin Feige or other Marvel head to spill the beans about the Avengers: Endgame post-credit scenes. Avengers: Endgame movie has already broken several box-office records in India and China. Movie experts are predicting that it will earn $1 billion within the first week only.last_img read more
