Camera Projection technique

Maybe the word Camera Projection is not strange to you, maybe you have heard and known it and this is old.But still have many people out there are looking for something like this but do not know exactly it is called to find out.

The word Camera Projection or you can call Camera Mapping , this is a really fantastic technique, this is used to turn your ordinary 2D photo into real 3D scene. That’s what you see in the sample video.

I also offer you the project file including 4 sample photos inside

And here are some examples :

    Thanks a lot it was really helpful, By the way I’ve got a quick question how would you go about trying to recreate this camera projection (
    Thanks in advance for any advise

    • Zen says:

      Ive watched the video you sent me , and I believe he used masks a lot and integrated them all. if you have a good skill in mask and blending, it’s quite easy.
      he also posted explanations right below the video.

      the background and the flour can use camera projection to settle.

      • NGEn says:

        I’ve read the explanations below the video the video as well,but the the issue I having its that I have been trying to set up the background and the floor as projection but got the background using your technique of camera projection to work but not the floor or would I need to redo the same process as you done in your tutorial about camera projection but also do you know good tutorial that could help me create something similar to the snow on that video

        Thanks again

          Oh, as you said , the camera projection was not worked for the flour right ? 1st check the “grid” for the flour of the project you are working on,without grid for the flour, the flour wont move.
          or you can pick any flour image instead and set that flour image crossed the background.
          and the snow , i recommend you to use snow footage or a plugin called “Trapcode Particular” to generate the snow effect very realistic.
