Filming Tips

Filming this effect is simple. In the screenshots that accompany this article, the actor stands next to the replicator and demands his beverage. In this case, the replicator is a flat surface with a small disc in the middle, which is used as the reference point where the cup will appear.

Once you have the stage set, set the camera filming and leave it filming throughout the entire action sequence. This technique will eliminate problems caused by slight movements in the camera's position when the on/off button is pushed.

With the camera running, leave the space empty for the moment, and then get the actor to place the glass on the replicator's reference point. He or she should then remain still and silent for a moment by the replicator before giving the spoken order for the required beverage. The actor should wait around three to four seconds, and then pick up the cup and drink from it.
