Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up, part of After Effects and mocha AE: Screen Replacement.
…We finished the screen tracking portion of this course.…Now we need to move on to the rotor…scooping portion of this course where we need to…cut out a copy of this actor's hands and…put them in front of our brand new data screen.…To do that, we're going to use the…rotor brush and refine edge tool inside AfterEffects.…Whenever your doing a composite like this you need a second copy of your background…plate because you need to put a foreground copy in front of your new screen.…
In this case, just our hands.…So I'm going to select the laptop layer, command or…control D to duplicate it and drag a duplicate on top.…Second, rotor brush needs to be done in the layer panel.…So I'm going to double click this layer to open up the…layer pane and this is where I'll see the rotor brush-specific user interface.…I'm going to drag my panel a little bit taller just…so I can see more of the image inside this frame.…Okay, the next thing we need to…do is study this piece of footage to…decide, how we need to rotoscope those hands.…
