Simulate a large crowd using live-action footage of a small group of people, 3D renders, and Photoshop artwork.
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Lee Lanier and welcome to VFX Techniques: Crowd Replication with After Effects. In this course we'll combine video footage, 3D renders and Photoshop artwork and After Effects to create a complex visual effects shot. This will turn an otherwise empty warehouse into a space filled with a large crowd. - And you can be proud of the contributions you've made in engineering, developing (applause) and manufacturing the zero loss system. - [Voiceover] I'll start by showing you how to set up an After Effects project and import image sequences.
Then I'll show you how to apply motion tracking to renders, video footage and static artwork so that all the elements follow the motion of the original camera. We'll see how the key green screen footage to place actors in the scene. This includes color greying the crowd and relighting the environment.
