I'm using the text-to-speech animation program Plotagon to film a short film and would like a special effect for this scene. If there's anyone who could do this for me, let me know here or in a private message.

This robot will use an "Eye Phone" to video call someone, meaning the image of the person will be projected from his eye. The two images are below, first the robot, and then the phone call recipient who's image needs to be projected.

Like I said it's a video call, so it needs to be a moving image with dialogue playing and all. If anyone would be able and willing to do this for me, let me know! Private message me or email at leolaw95@gmail if interested or for more details.

Thanks in advance! Smile

Hi,

do you mean something like an image from a projector?

Some lights flowing from the eye to project a 3d image of the other person, is that right?

I guess you can try this in Sony Vegas, but it will require some skill to make it look right!

Yeah, that's about what I'm looking for. I want to have one scene overlayed top of another (the overlayed one of course being much smaller) with the projector effect, and it would switch between the hologram and the scene with the real person. It's a bit hard to explain.

Here's an extremely crude "diagram" of what I'm essentially looking for (excuse this, I do not know how to draw with a mouse at all lol)

If I had Sony Vegas, or some sort of tool to do this effect myself I would, I'm working with very limited and basic software and don't have the money to invest in upgrades. That's why I was hoping someone could help me with it. I'm sure it takes a lot of skill and work to pull this kind of effect off, but I'm not looking for cinematic quality, just as long as it resembles what I'm going for I'll be happy with. It can be a very cheesy effect, that may even be preferred since it would go well with the tone of the short film overall.

Well, in that case send me both clips and I'll try to mix them into a single piece with the desired effect, but trust me it won't look even "crude" mellado, much worse.

Upload the videos into a platform such as Mega or Mediafire, then email or private message me. I think through the forum it's OK

Just so everybody knows, I'm getting help towards making this happen! I do want to thank Dibujante for offering to help, but my good friend Mike over at TMU offered his help and even seems excited to work on it! I will still credit Dibu in the special thanks just for taking the time to offer his assistance! Smile
