Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video What is compositing?, part of After Effects CC 2019 Essential Training: Motion Graphics.
- [Instructor] What is compositing?…Loosely, it's the combining of two or more visual elements…As an example, compositing in its simplest form…is placing one image on top of another,…like adding a layer of text onto a picture…or drawing a goofy mustache on a selfie.…Building up smaller components like text, still images,…and live-action footage to create a more complex composition…is often the end goal that could not be achieved otherwise.…Here we'll take a look at an overview of some…of the key concepts and terminology associated…with compositing and how they fit…within the realm of motion graphics.…
So here are some key concepts.…We have mattes, rotoscoping, keying,…blending modes, and tracking.…Mattes are used to isolate one portion of an image.…It essentially cuts out the portion of a picture…that you want to use or throw away.…In AfterAffects, mattes can be generated a number of ways,…including creating a mask directly on a layer…or by having one layer reference…the transparency of another.…That's a method called track matting.…
