Have a client that wants some shots done tomorrow and I'm thinking about rigging, even though they'll be demoing the car as well. I figured I could try and get some really clean rig drift shots too..

Anyone have any examples I can get my head around?

I'm looking around, don't see a lot.

I think it will be easier to do all the work in post than to worry about rigging it...

Steve Demmitt has done a few, you might try giving him a call.

PS - be sure to call the driver a Pikey. He'll like it smile.gif

result:



after all thoughts- if it'd be done in the daytime, with quicker shuttrspeed, and mounted on other surface than the shaky bonnet, focused correctly, didn't leave the camera strap i think it might work smile.gif if no, then + 2 more poles try again tongue.gif that's my plan tongue.gif

Holy crap Maciek, thats some huge trust! Imagine you could have gotten some dust/dirt on the road to give you a better sense of which side of the car is moving.

Go on mackey - you put it on flickr, so you might as well post it here (and explain how you did it while you're at it!)

Let's just say I decided to be very brave with my gear this time around.

I might make a post on my site in the coming weeks on it. Haven't decided yet (it's not rocket science to figure out, but I've got other things to handle first).

Rolling burnout with other shots comped to help with sharpness?
