Lesson 9. Finishing the 3D Composite

Lesson 9. Finishing the 3D Composite

Now things are getting really interesting as you continue to combine elements. You can use 2D elements—such as text and numbers—as 3D layers in this composition. That means you can arrange them any way you like around the camera to create a compelling virtual world around the 2D movie of the actress.

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

  • Precompose and collapse 3D layers

  • Apply the Tint effect

  • Position and duplicate layers in 3D space

This lesson picks up the work you began in Lesson 8, using the same project as its basis. In that lesson, you worked with cameras, null objects, and imported camera data. In this lesson, you bring that work together with other 3D elements into a complete 3D composite that you render at the end of this lesson.

You'll work with two new 3D elements that have been prepared for you: a rings element, much like the ring image that you used to create circles in Lesson 3, and a starburst element, similar to the one you created in Lesson 4. You'll also work with four more elements that you built in Lessons 2 and 5.

This lesson takes about one hour to complete.
