I make an action(combat) short-length film and I use After Effects and 3DS MAX to edit it. I want to make a battle scene where the one guy hits another guy and the second one is thrown away like a ragdoll.Could anyone please give me some advices or guide how to do an effect like this? The following video resembles a good example of the effect that i am trying to create.
The only way i found effective is to crop the "ragdoll" guy and manipulate it by using the puppet tool (from after effects)...Also blur would hide the fake effect...
Thank you! :)
P.S.:The following 2 links are samples of the film that I am making!Hope you enjoy it!
