So a while ago I made a flocking bird simulation using C4D and AE. Well, I wanted to take that a little further and track it into a live action scene. I shot the footage on my T2i and in post I used C4D, SynthEyes and After Effects.
Hey I have the same camera! I dig the movement but it looks kind of unnatural, I think the shape is too geometric.

Thanks for the comment, Klemen . I agree about the shape.

I agree the shape looks odd, but I haven't seen a large flock of birds in a while so I don't really know. Given the distance it's very hard to tell that the birds are actually modeled and animated, which seems unfortunate for what looks like a well made bird. The tracking and composite look good.
