Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a lava waterfall, part of Digital Matte Painting Essentials 5: Camera Projection in Maya.
…We're getting near the finish, but the one remaining…item that needs to be animated is this lava waterfall.…To do that, I need to open up the final castle painting.…We need to isolate the lava waterfall.…Let's zoom in a bit and marquee around it. And copy it out.…Create a new Photoshop document,…and let's make this a little wider than the copied waterfall, 300 pixels'll do.…We were viewing the waterfall at an angle in the painting, so after we distort it to…fit this wider format it'll be more like the original waterfall viewed straight-on.…
I'll save this waterfallflat.jpg to the exercise files for premium…members in case you want to try this out yourself.…Let's go back into After Effects and drag in…the waterfall, and drag it into its own comp.…First we're going to animate the waterfall using displacement This is an alternative…to using video footage, and I'll show you that option also in a minute.…Make a new solid and rather than making this comp size,…let's make this huge, so we can move it like falling lava.…
