Topic: How do you make the inside of Sniper Scope and have animation.

I'd like to make a Sniper Scope looking at a minifigure but I'd like to have animation going
on at the same time.
How do I do this?

Re: How do you make the inside of Sniper Scope and have animation.

make a layer with a scope, and put the footage behind it.

Which program can do overlays?

mini/lol  foolish child, that is more work than you need to do. You don't have to do overlays, you can just greenscreen it in.

Re: How do you make the inside of Sniper Scope and have animation.

1. Make black image with transparent center in GIMP as top layer.
2. Get frame from your film as background layer
3. Save image as new one combining both layers.
4. ???
5. PROFIT!

But yeah if you use editing software that can chromakey it would be easier to make a "sniper scope" picture with like a purple centre, then key out the purple in the editing software.

You wouldn't even have to use editing software, you could download CineGobs Color Keyer (FREE!!!!!) and use that, because it works a LOT better than most editing software.

I'm sorry, but how is chromakeying easier? Go into GIMP, draw your scope, and save it as a .PNG image with a transparent center. Then put your desired animated footage on video track one, the scope image on track two, and stretch it out to the desired length. Done. The only time that keying might be useful is if your video editor can only handle one video track *cough*WMM*cough*.

Or you could be all old school and get some black card, make a hole in it and stick it in front of your camera.
