Giving Ken Burns the 3rd Degree

Unintentionally, I goaded Bob Donlon, our resident Digital Video guru to post a 3D pan and scan tutorial (AKA Ken Burns effect) on his blog. Thanks, Bob!

Out of the blue this morning, in between keeping up with the Phillies attempt to make the playoffs (wishful thinking) I was going through my bookmarks and stumbled across an excellent 3D PIcture Trick" tutorial by Daniel Brown, a former resident Digital Video chef, inspired by the amazing 2D into 3D work of Patrick Siemer.

In addition to this tutorial, there are some additional tips and trick for AE users on the Adobe Evangelists site (although mostly geared to AE 6.5 and earlier), however, if you are an avid Photoshop user, there is a copious amount of excellent info provided by Julieanne Kost, Adobe's resident Graphic Arts guru (she keeps Russell Brown on his toes).

I have a slightly different approach

and project file

Also a full length DVD that goes into using 3D lights and depth of field. Let me know if I can send any of this your way, I have several projects and samples that go beyond both Dan and Bob's tutorial (I do live in documentary-ville aka washington, DC)
