I enjoy watching this tutorial. I'm going to work on doing one also. I like how the shadow was done on the ground.
very very useful tutorial

hello Eran.
this tutorial is very useful to make invisible predator,ghost or magician. I think this effect is used very frequently in movies, so we needed it .
Thanks, keep it up!

very cool.
in response to an earlier comment, the way you add an alpha channel to the video file is very simple.
once you have your comp in the render que, click on the output module. the default is "lossless."
under the video options, set the depth to "millions of colors+"
this will preserve the alpha channel.

Regarding Fantastic 4, I don't know if they used AE, but the principles are the same with any effects software.

mocha AE Planar Tracker for Absolute Beginners

mocha AE Planar Tracker for Absolute Beginners

Want to learn how to create advanced visual effects? Learn how to use mocha AE to track your shot and add advanced visual effects to live action footage inside Adobe After Effects. mocha can help you track shots that would be hard to track using traditional 2D point or feature trackers because it is a PLANAR TRACKER. A planar tracker uses planes and textures to track as opposed to points or groups of pixels. This allows the tracker to stay on track even if your shot contains motion blur or a very shallow depth of field. mocha AE comes included with Adobe After Effects and is available since CS3 and there is no reason for you not to use this awesome tool to make it easier for you to track your shot, replace screens or rotoscope!
