WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
Compositing is the combining of visual elements into a single image. From major films to car commercials, nearly all professional modern video contains composited elements.
Rotoscoping is the creation of mattes for elements on a live-action plate, preparing it to be composited over another background.
Greenscreens (or bluescreens) are used to insert background elements into a live action shot. Whether characters are on an alien world or just on a rooftop, greenscreens are ubiquitous in film.
Camera tracking, or match moving, is a technique that allows the insertion of computer graphics into live-action footage with correct position, scale, orientation, and motion relative to the photographed objects in the shot.
Nuke is a node-based digital compositing application developed by The Foundry, and used for film and television post-production. It is the industry standard compositing software.
