Playing with Fire

Continuing on with visual effects for my Video Portfolio page where I am seeking freelance work in video design, editing and production - this relatively short clip at 1m10s length took much longer than a minute to create.

It took a couple of days to figure out how to navigate 3D software to do tracking of elements in a video and then to assign a 3D rendered fire effect to the moving object in the scene. In addition to human effort time, there was considerable computational processing which took several hours to track the "fire torch" in the video, render the 3D fire effect, composite the scene with final video production in video editing software.

The learning exercise and the resulting videos are well worth the time investment.
