Animate a walking man in After Effects
This is just a quick example of what you could do with an animation in after effects.The idea came to me about a year ago so this weekend I just went to the end of the road where I live and took a still first and ran some film over one minute from the same angle and height.
I then took the still image off the camera and brought this into photoshop, here I duplicated the image and selected the pen tool and cut out the arms and legs. Next I brought these into after effects and also brought in the background film clip of one minute. I key framed the green man over 10 seconds, I also parented the arms and legs to the main body using the pan behind tool.
