First Four Volumes of Live-Action Silhouette Animations Debut With a Business Theme
Each new themed volume of Silhouettes contains no less than 75 QuickTime movies with each clip provided in 500, 1500 and 3000 pixel resolution versions. “We’ve done the work for you in scaling these clips down, ensuring along the way that the edges and details in each clip stay clean and crisp for drag-and-drop simplicity on any type of project from HD commercials to splash screen web ads,” says Hebel. For even greater flexibility, Silhouettes’ includes both Adobe After Effects and Apple Motion Match Move projects for some of the clips in each new volume. “We strategically integrated props into certain clips to make it easy for artists to customize the Silhouettes. For example, an artist can use the tracking data in the match move templates to embed text, photos or videos directly onto a wall, sign or laptop the Silhouette character may be holding or leaning against,” says Hebel.
75 Quicktime Silhouettes clips per volume with a variety of actions and all drag-and-drop easy to use.
Shot on a green screen using a wide variety of real life actors and props, you get the fluidity of live action and realistic human motion without the complexity of color or specific facial expressions or clothing styles.
Captured at 3K resolution using a RED ONE camera, you get the highest possible professional quality clips with sharp definition and fluid motion.
Meticulously hand-rotoscoped and carefully keyed, each clip delivers crisp, clean mattes that give you a professional edge for even the simplest of projects.
Adobe After Effects and Apple Motion Match Move projects included for some clips make it easy to customize Silhouettes with your own text, photos or videos.
The 3 resolutions provided for each clip (500, 1500 and 3000 pixels) mean crisp, clean footage for drag-and-drop simplicity on any type of project, whether for an HD commercial or a splash screen ad.
