Join Lee Lanier for an in-depth discussion in this video Integrating CG renders, part of VFX Techniques: Crowd Replication with After Effects.
One important task when integrating CG renders with live action footage is making sure that…the colors, the blurriness, and the sharpness are consistent.…In our case with the 3D industrial tubes, they don't match.…If you compare those tubes to the tubes that are originally in the scene, they look very different.…The color is off, they look more brown, also the highlights don't quite match.…In addition, they are a bit sharp, which is often the case with CG renders.…What we can do is apply various effects to try to better integrate these tubes.…
I am going to go the Tubes layer, select that then go to Effect.…The first thing we can work on is just the color.…So I'll go to Color Correction and go to Hue/Saturation.…So I can spin this color wheel here to get different colors.…We wanted more of a bluish tone, so -210 on the color wheel for the Master Hue works pretty well.…I can also adjust Saturation, so I am going to reduce that just take out a little bit of the blueness.…That's good for the color, it is more on the correct color space.…
