The intoroduction is like documentary style.
I thought about contents of "The war of the world" of
H. G. Wells at first. But, it was difficult to make the movie in
a short term. So I made it like some documentary style.
Left picture is an intoroduction to the documentary style. Left
picture was made with Premire.
Countdown movie with Premire's function.
The countdown movie was made with Premire.
This movie gave an storong impression as if this image was produced
(1) Premire can generates movie including alfa channel.
(2）Composition in AfterEffects
(1 ) I took the background imege with a video camera (Hi8).
A UFO 3D-imege was free DXF data from Web.
I generated a flying scene of "UFO" with Bryce4.
Actually, Bryce4 only can make QuickTime movie without alfa channel
mask. But it can make the black and white image for making mask.
Premire is possible to generate QuickTime with alfa channel added
from black and white image.
Anyway, I wanted to make old fashioned metallic "Flyingsoucer
(UFO)" by all means.
Therefore it was necessary to add atomosphere images of real backgaound
to the surface of "UFO".
And next,I arranged the material imitated real backgaound in making
animation of "UFO"
(2) I composed UFO (with alfa mask) and the real video background
Also I arranged the size of "UFO" and motion-blur in imitated
in real shooting. See picture (1)and(2).
(3) Finally, I arrenged color and added a scratch and the dust
which seem to have stuck to a film by Premire again.
(1）Sight of behind the handrail
(２）Composition with AfterEffcts
(3) Maiking mask with Photoshop
(A red part is masking on alfa channel)
(1) and (3) Because took "UFO" as imagination from the
top of the pedestrian bridge and "UFO" went through under
the pedestrian bridge.
It was necessary for "UFO" to be seen behind the handrail
of it. In this case as a result of having made trial and error in
various ways, I began to generate only this part of the video image
with a filmstrip format in Premire. a I read also it in Photoshop
and make a mask in a freehand drawing in the alpha channel.
I composed it and "UFO" in AfterEffects again.
(2) A composition result in AfterEffects.
Because I intended to keep a date recorded to a video alive at first,
I made the mask dated the day.
However, I finally became needless in the direction and put a telop
of "NO SOUND" to cover it.
The roto-scoping was good method like in this case because the number
of frames in this scene was only 54.
(3) In the filmstrip, I made a mask in an alpha channel with Photoshop.
This scene is just an instant, but "UFO" appeared for
a moment through the handrail.
It is only this, but can show fine reality. It is very effective.

(1) Finish work of composition with Premire
(2) Coposition with AfterEffects
(3) Masking work with AfterEffects
(1) to (3) "UFO" is going to cross the other side of an
electric wire and the telephone pole, and this scene made a mask in
Because the video camera I had by my hands, movement is irregularity.
So I moved the mask and adjust size with AfterEffects.
In addition, put blur in a mask.
The thin parts such as electric wires omit a mask.
If a mask in the scene of before and after, as for the small part,
we don't know what is omitted.
I don't think there is many problems.
Because I thought about the image that I took in 8 mm film area this
time, I add conversion to the shading off and sepia-like, scratches
and the dust of the film like with Premire.
