Chapter 8. Compositing Images

Chapter 8. Compositing Images

The Stage in Figure 8.1 shows a gigantic pumpkin sitting in a field. Needless to say, there are no pumpkins quite that large—the image was faked by taking a photo of a pumpkin, removing its background, and placing it in front of a photo of a field to give the appearance of a unified whole. The technique of combining one or more foreground images with one or more background images in this way is called compositing.

Figure 8.1. This gigantic pumpkin, superimposed against a field, is an example of compositing.
