Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Digital Matte Painting Essentials 1: Concept.
If you are a premium member of the lynda.com online training library, you have access to the files used in this demonstration, to the exercise files tab, to the right of the table of contents tab on the lynda.com website. Each section has its own folder, but I would recommend downloading all of the exercise files to your desktop before you start, since some of the chapters will refer to the resources first used in another section. If you are a monthly or annual member of lynda.com, you still have access to the original plate I will be using for this demonstration, along with the footage that your final castle will be composited into.
