erm.. one from today...



Stupid Minis...


ha yeah, minis are hard because that area is the only area you can really put the suction cups, how are you getting on with this one?

Nice job dude!

Quick question: Why do you guys always put your rigs on the bonnet? I've only once ever attached the rig to the bonnet (it also happened to be a soft-top car). The rest of the time, the roof is always so much easier!


thanks! my pole isnt long or sturdy enough for the roof, how long is your pole Seethegrim?

QUOTE(Dragos @ Jan 25 2010, 05:12 AM) *
it gives you more extension. On the roof you need a longer rig smile.gif


yeah mines only 10ft

QUOTE(GFWilliams @ Jan 25 2010, 05:37 AM) *
Also, bonnets tend to be stronger, so more likely to hold the weight of the rig without leaving a mark.. (apart from 911s)


911's leave a mark?

Depends on the car manufacturer. The black R35 GTR I shot left rings in the clear because the paint is so soft... oops.

The owners didn't tell us till after we did rigs the paint is soft.

Here is the finished rig shot:

Not perfect, but I'm happy smile.gif

911s seem to have very thin bonnets, so don't like having a heavy rig on them.. I didn't do any damage as I checked before I put it on, but I ended up putting it on the windscreen/rear window instead..

If these are your "hard" to remove reflections, I'd love to see your "easy" ones lol. Like Don said, wait until you have a car that's entirely carbon fiber... then you'll have some fun! lmao.

Also happened to me on a black R35 GT-R, luckily it was a press-demo... tongue.gif

holy................ unsure.gif

I didn't realize that everything was CF like that. If I shot that image, i'd probably give up and throw the CF card (and my external drive) off my 3rd story balcony into the passing metro train below.


..... which is probably why I don't have a rig!

I've done a video of how I edited my scooby rig shot (sped up as I couldn't find a mic to commentate and it gets boring otherwise!)

Yeah, nice one George. I still skipped most of the vid to the interesting parts, but good to see different methods for doing the same thing.

Why don't you feather your paths?

I do a lot of the times, but feathering is consistent across the whole path, whereas camera shake usually increases with relative distance. I just think there is a lot more control with the blur tool.

@ George: great movie: thanks for sharing!
Yeah I have a few more rig shots that I think by myself I will never clean the rig out ,lol. Must say that CS4 is a good improvement for cleaning out a rig!

This is why I always do. My friends rig I use isn't that long and makes the car super distorted when I do it from the roof. When I get money to make a rig I'm gonna make it long as fuck lol.
