Escape Game Rooms Offer Terrifying Scenarios A new gaming facility in B.C. offers players the chance to escape from locked rooms by solving puzzles and riddles within 45 minutes. It's certainly a different way to spend a Saturday night. Exit, located in Richmond, B.C., features four rooms with different themes including ancient Egypt and prison escape. The most terrifying has to be "laboratory escape" with its (fake) blood-splattered walls and tools. Rotoscoping with Vector Paint Lately, I have been getting hired to “supercharge” sports footage. I create the spots for our IHL hockey team, The Chicago Wolves and while their budgets are narrow, hockey footage is plentiful. Each month I sift through their video game highlights and digitize the coolest clips for some digital frolics in After Effects.

After all, the cheapest 3D camcorder on the market right now is Panasonic's $21,000 AG-3DA1, and even that requires a constellation of specialized equipment and software to deliver usable 3D footage. What's more, the gear that electronics manufacturers are just now introducing to the market to edit and play 3D content requires an almost total replacement of your existing computer and AV equipment. I don't really want to buy a new graphics card, computer screen, HDTV (which I just got, thank you very much), home theater receiver and Blu-ray player, but I do kind of like the idea of making a cheap and easy 3D action flick starring my cat. Balancing Act

I encourage you to examine the ones that I've used in these examples and to try your hand at making your own and substituting them into one of the comps. For example, try replacing the snowflakes with autumn leaves. Or just invent some weird semi-transparent blob and see what it looks like in the fountain comp. Experiment.
