Description

In this series of lessons, we'll learn how to use Composite to reassemble our Maya render passes and integrate them with our background plates. Using composite to assemble our final render gives us an incredible amount of creative control over the final look of our shot. We'll begin this project by importing our render passes from Maya. From there, we will do some basic compositing. We'll then begin troubleshooting our shot and using a variety of tools and techniques to integrate our elements. We'll also learn how to fix issues in our background plate using masks, keyers, and other tools. During this shot, we will be animating various elements to tell the director's story. Finally, we'll finish the shot by using warping and filtering tools to create an ending for our 'Infiltrator' shot. Software required: Composite 2011 and up.
