Lesson 8. Beginning the 3D Composite

Lesson 8. Beginning the 3D Composite

Sophisticated camera work with advanced technical capabilities requires sophisticated software when you work with the captured footage. Adobe After Effects can do the job—and so can you, with a little careful planning and many skills you've already mastered as you've worked through this book.

In this lesson you'll learn to do the following:

  • Import and use camera footage and data

  • Use various 3D views

  • Animate a still image (hexagon) in 3D space

  • Add and use composition-time markers

  • Apply Fast Blur and Echo effects

  • Use the Hue/Saturation effect to color-correct a layer

  • Use the Linear Wipe effect to reveal a layer

In this chapter, you'll work primarily with live-action footage of an actress, captured by a motion-control camera. You'll add a virtual camera layer to the composition and apply settings to match those of the actual camera used to film the footage. By re-creating the physical camera movement in the camera layer, you can place the actress in a virtual world so that later you can surround her with graphics. Fasten your seat belts…here you go.

This lesson takes about one hour to complete.
