[Flashcoders] Fwd: Dynamically superimposing image onto video

2010-03-12 Thread kennethkawam...@gmail.com
Anyone???



Just contemplating the strategy for dynamically superimposing an image
onto a video. A good recent example is: http://en.tackfilm.se/

Any ideas to achieve this? (Just the final video rendering bit, you
can leave the file upload etc. ;)

TIA,

Kenneth

Why not just overlay a mc that contains your image on top of the video?

Yes, basically that. If it's still image it's very easy, but it's a
video - so that the perspective changes and the mask (e.g. to handle
something over-wrapping in front of the image) changes due course.

I probably need to draw the mask by hand frame by frame and control
the perspective of the image by AS. This is not going to be an easy
one... ;)

I would agree and guess that's how it's done - overlay a movie clip you
tween and distort and add objects over the top of - to match the video.

Steady camera motion when shooting initial video would create script
friendly sequence and should save a lot of time later - notes to
myself :)

If you don't mind your stream being downloaded without the required 
branding or possible news event embedded into the video, plus the added 
bandwidth overhead is not a concern, than an overlay is perfect.


If there are branding concerns, or you work for a site that would like 
to reduce bandwidth and send news events cnn style, then you will have 
to know how to modify the stream before you send it to the client.


If new events aren't required, but the branding is, then you really only 
need to do a separate encoding that includes the content.


Ads at cue point, using a number of methods, can easily be told to fire 
based on the time per frame.

For the first sentence I meant to say that applying an overlay at the 
client is fine, if you are not concerned with your stream being ripped 
without branding, possible cnn style news events, or captions being 
included.


If things need to be live and targeted you will want to do things at the 
server; otherwise, if server load is a concern, and you do not need to 
be changing graphics live, then doing it during encoding and prior to 
uploading the content to the server might be the way to go.

2010-03-12 Thread Kenneth Kawamoto
The server load is not a concern but it will not need to be live 
streaming at all, so I am planning to do the dynamic image overlay - 
triggered by cue points and animated by script with possibly 
frame-by-frame hand drawn mask - at the client side.


Thinking about it, there's no need to upload the user image to the 
server - just do everything at the client ;)
