Lesson 3. Intermediate Compositing > From Robot to Robzilla

From Robot to Robzilla

Before we start this lesson, let’s have a little fun. It’s interesting how our mind can perceive an object totally differently based on perspective. You’ll see what I mean in a moment.

1.
Open Shake.

2.
Choose File > Open Script.

3.
Navigate to the Lesson02 folder and choose robot_pt1.shk, or select the script that you saved from the previous lesson, and click OK.

Your script opens up in the Node workspace.

4.
Highlight the Brightness1 node and press I to ignore it.

5.
Select the Add1 node and choose Outside from the Layer tab.

Outside places an image outside the mask of a second image. Only the mask of the second image is considered in the composite, and the color comes from the foreground image. Essentially, the mask of the second image cuts a hole in the first image.

6.
Connect Resize1 to the right input of Outside1.

7.
Double-click the Over2 node and click the Flipbook icon.

Holy Toledo! The robot looks gigantic! The cute little robot has turned into a scary Robzilla.
