For someone new to the world of animation, especially real-time animation, the industry and what’s available can appear downright bewildering. There are a great many solutions it seems, starting with Autodesk’s wonderful, but pricey solutions, to free and shareware solutions. There are of course the most well-known and perhaps also the most popular solutions such as Autodesk’s solutions, Kinemac for the Mac and Reallusion’s iClone4. But there are plenty of other options as well.
Selective focus through the tilt of lens is often used to simulate a miniature scene. This effect (sometimes also known as dollhouse effect, tilt-shift effect, etc) can be easily obtained by using high-end cameras which allow tilting of the lens. Apart from using specialized cameras/lenses to simulate miniature effect, basic digital after treatment can give similar results and offer greater flexibility. As shown in our previous tutorial, you can easily choose the region that is sharp and the amount of blur. Furthermore, these options can be made after the actual shoot.
Cross-processing was used during the age of film cameras to give photographs a unique look. Technically it is the process of treating a film with the chemicals usually used for different type of film –like developing transparency film with C41 process. Cross-processed After Effects Preset will help you to digitally add this effect to your footage.
