Description

In this series of lessons, we will learn how to use MatchMover to track an object as if it was our scene, then finish the shot with Maya and Composite. Using MatchMover we can find the movements of a real life object and move a 3D object to match. We will begin this project by manually tracking our sequence in MatchMover and exporting it for use in Maya. We will then take our solved camera into our Maya scene and move our object into place. We will then learn how to capture our 3D environment reflections and create some helpful matte layers. Once we have rendered our Maya sequence, we will learn how to combine all of our images in Composite. We will learn about processing our background footage to capture traveling mattes, as well as many different ways to combine our various mattes to create effects. We will finish by adding a silhouette and color correcting our images. Software required: MatchMover and Composite 2011.

Introduction and Project Overview
[Autogenerated] Hello, I'm Chris with digital tutors. Autodesk authorized publisher in the series of Lessons will learn how to use match movers to track an object as if it was our scene. Then finish the shot with Maya and composite. Using match mover, we confined the movements of a real life object and move a three d object to match. We'll begin this project by Manly tracking our sequence in match mover and exploiting it for use in mine will then take our solved camera into our Miocene and move our object into place. Well, then learn how to capture our three D environment reflections and create some helpful Matt Layers. Once we've rendered, our sequence will learn how to combine all of our images. In composite, we'll learn about processing our background footage to capture travelling. Mattes, as well as many different ways to combine our mats to create effects, will finish by adding a silhouette and color correcting our image. This series of lessons will illustrate an example how match mover can be used to track really life objects and how to finish the object replacement process. Using my and composite, this will allow us to add three D to realize objects and create an appealing composite. So with that, let's go ahead and get started
