(If this fits better in a different category let me know, it’s kinda animation but also not so yea😅)
o/ I got this video here: https://youtu.be/Gzve2hpLeqc?t=40 and I just adore the effect in the corus’ where those neon lines follow the dancers feet and hand moves, so i’m trying to recreate it to understand the fundamentals of it and see if it’s in the realm of possibilities for me to hook up to my VR livestreams later on.
What i’ve got so far is a video of someone dancing (Not from the video linked above, so I could chroma key it and combine it later), then tracked the feet and hands and made the trackers into empties in a 3D scene. And hooked some light balls to the empties. And then lastly set up an armature between one hand and foot with some IK so it bends kinda like in the video.
- I’m unsure on how to attach the light lines to the bones
- And on how to recurse the lines with offsets. Maybe array modifiers? Feel like there’d be a better way though
- And to a lesser extend how to have faces fade in and out, but that’s for much later anyways
