Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Preparing the file for After Effects, part of Digital Matte Painting 5: Camera Projection in Maya.
…Next, we want to add the moving footage of the waves to our camera projection.…I included that footage called plates.mov in the course…materials for the first section of the course, but I'm…going to also include it for everyone to use, premium…and monthly members, in the materials for this section also.…Let's open it up and take a look at it. It's a beautiful Caribbean coastline,…and doesn't look very much like the ocean of lava in this current project.…You need to tone it in After Effects, then write the moving footage out as…a series of sequential TIFFs for Maya to use, then add it to the camera projection.…
While we're at it, we can also add a…dramatic moving sky and move the smoke from the volcanoes.…The way we got the dramatic look of the background…was by toning the plate in Photoshop.…And luckily, Photoshop and After Effects talk to each other nicely.…So we can bring our file into After Effects and…reuse some of the effects we used to tone the plate.…We'll need to prepare a special version of the file…
