Lesson 12. Advanced Compositing > FileIn the Source Material

FileIn the Source Material

1.
Open Shake.

2.
FileIn the coke_comp.1-109#.iff, frame.1-109#.iff, neon.0001.iff, and trailer.1-109#.iff files from the Lesson12 folder.

View the final composite.

3.
Find the coke_comp clip and load it into the Viewer.

4.
In the Globals tab, set the timeRange to 1-109.

5.
Click the Flipbook icon and play the clip once it is loaded.

The neon sign and its reflection were added to the moving shot of the trailer.

6.
Repeat the previous steps to play the trailer and frame clips.

7.
Double-click the neon clip to load it into the Viewer.

These are your elements. The one-frame neon sign clip will have to be tracked onto the trailer background plate, while the frame clip will act as a minor reflective element for the sign.

8.
Close all open flipbooks.

Before you assemble all these elements into a MultiPlane node with imported 3D tracking data, they will need to be prepped. To start with, you will want to create a glow for the neon sign. Because a glow effect is something that you could use on more than one occasion, you will create a reusable glow macro.
