Learn how to composite 2D or 3D foreground objects to a background scene with After Effects and seamlessly match light, color, depth of field, and noise, so that every element looks natural.
- Hi, I'm Mark Christiansen, and I'm going to share with you a passion of mine, which is visual effects compositing in Adobe After Effects. This is a skill that I built up over my career, working on small projects and big feature films, and most often working right in After Effects. This introductory course restores a little bit of the fun into fundamentals, with shots that exemplify matching elements to a scene, whether 2-D or 3-D compositing. We'll take into account the way that a camera creates a moving image, including light, grain and depth of field, along with in-depth, color-matching techniques that frankly are gonna rock your world.
