Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Isolating the rest of the layers, part of Digital Matte Painting Essentials 5: Camera Projection in Maya.
…There are seven more layers to prepare and this is going to get repetitive,…so I'm going to fast forward through the next one, the top wall.…You'll do the same thing, load in the mask holding layer if you have one, or hand…select the top wall. Then Copy-Merge the selection out, Paste…it in place Patch the areas where the side tower is covering the wall, then select…the bottom of the layer, copy duplicate that selection down so…that the layers can meet without gap showing, and trim the layer.…
Turn the other layers on to confirm you have enough coverage.…And then turn all the other layers back on.…Next, we want to get the towers and domes out.…And on this one, I didn't correct the mask holding layers.…The reason for…that, is that any element that can be silhouetted against transparency, can be…cleanly extracted by turning off the…background layers, selecting the area you want.…Copy merged, and pasting it back in place.…Since there was nothing behind them, the towers and dome come out cleanly.…
Let's zoom in and solo the towers layer.…
