Composited scenes can give video an interesting look…like right out of old sci fi/fantasy TV shows.
Composited scenes are cool, allowing you to take footage of actual human characters and place those characters against fantastic and artistic backgrounds. It’s a technique that’s become familiar to all fans of classic fantasy or sci fi shows and movies, where characters are often sent to magical worlds.
It’s super-easy to put composited scenes into your own video projects, as DMA instructor and filmmaker Damien Verrett shows you in his latest how-to.
Covered in this DMA how-to tutorial:
- How to use the Rotobrush Tool for redrawing backgrounds
- Adding blur to backgrounds to simulate depth of field
- How to “take back” lines made by the Rotobrush Tool
- Benefits of running footage through a “VHS filter”
- Creating atmospheric effects (like fog) that actually move
