VFX Techniques introduces common yet critical visual effects techniques that are used in film and television shows on a regular basis. This installment shows how to build complex composites with Adobe After Effects and mocha, where motion graphics are mapped to live-action footage of an actor. Author Lee Lanier starts by combining rotoscoping and effects to digitally apply makeup to an actor to disguise motion tracking marks. Then discover how to transfer footage into mocha and generate planar tracking data that you can use to motion track graphics to the moving face of the actor. Plus, learn how to build and adjust motion graphics to create the look of a virtual tattoo and a pair of holographic heads-up glasses.
Before we get started, I'd like to show you a preview of the major steps we will be taking throughout this course. I'll start by showing you how to use rotoscoping and effects to create digital makeup. And then, we motion-track the tattoo art and how it follows the face. Then, I'll show you how to create a heads-up display as if it were a pair of high-tech virtual glasses of some type. We'll use additional effects and animation to create the armature and some light effects, and we'll be doing some color-grading to integrate everything. The goal is to add a floating heads-up display and electronic tattoo to the face of an actress.
