Had to use one of my Avenger cups for this one (sold a customer my own Rig-Pro cup assembly before the weekend), was sweating the whole time, but it worked out. Hate those damn things!

Nice finished shot as normal VE but I'm intrigued, are you cutting the car out completely and placing on another background from the same shoot?

The before shot clearly isn't the one you finally used, different background position and no reflection of lights in the rear bumper etc - loving those light trails

here's a before and after rig shot I took the other night.

my rig consists of the usual avenger cups (2) with no magic arm, instead I use my tripod ball head screwed into the clamp on the end of the pole.

I like it :) only shop a little more out of the suction cups on the car hood just next to the left headlight.

All my rig-shots are composites :).

oooh, didn't notice that! probably thought it could pass off as a reflection of light, but with the before and after right there, ahah, yup, that a reflection of the cup. whoops!

good eye though, I like getting some feed back. I think most of us do. Thank you:eek:

I always thought they were! some super clean composites, definitely going to play with that kind of stuff more for fun.

any pointers on shooting so that things are consistent once they are on screen in post?

Once I get the rig where I want it, I don't move it for anything, even if I think I've got the shot wrong, it stays planted. And I do a LOT of shots with it that way, multiple polarizations, multiple shutter speeds, multiple apertures, multiple different speeds. Everything you see in my shots is REAL, it just wasn't all happening at the same time :p. Look at the shot I posted with the boom, then the other shot, you can see parts that are EXACT, untouched, straight out of the camera. That's how I like it.

Dude, it's all good, if you can't sell it let me know and I'll sell it for you! As far as the length, could be 14 or 15 feet.

Shot with a Rig-Pro 20 footer. Lots of mistakes on this one, basically a test shot, but you can see the vantage point from 20 feet, pretty killer.
