Any idea how to achieve this "object tracking" effect?
Hey guys, I want to ask you how I could pull something like this off:
The effect starts at 1:23, and more examples of it follow from there. The effect manages to make the "camera" move around a fixed position in the frame, and it's clear that the camera wasn't rigged to said objects to make the effect. In the video you see it with: a hand strumming a guitar, a head bobbing in the crowd, a hand holding a mic, and a woman holding a mic. They are moving and the movement of the frame is centered around it.
It creates this distorted, focused moving-with-the-motion and I'm really digging it and want to play around with it for a project I'm doing.
My first instinct tells me that it could be done with a stabilizer that's been tweaked heavily to reference a moving object as it's "Stable point" (I dont know the technicalities so bear with the possibly incorrect terminology)
I've tried a number of searches online but none have gotten me to anything like this, mostly because I dont know what this effect would be called. NFS is my go-to community at the moment, so if theres another forum somewhere that might better be suited for this question, please let me know, I would also appreciate that.
