Digital Compositor - Professional Reel 004 - Aug. 2011


Prison Break – “CG Wall Crumble” – VFX Compositor

The wall crumble was done using CG elements created by a Lightwave Artist, and was tracked & composited into a post zoomed-in plate using SHAKE.

Armored – “Green Screen Extension” – VFX Compositor

This was a Green Screen Stage shot in which it needed an exterior extension, using location photography, after keying out the green screen. The shot called for a CG Enhancement to the right front fender to make it look like it had gone through a crash. Also there was distinctive sections of the shot where the green screen spill and other color spill needed rotoscoped Color Correction. The shot was composited using SHAKE and the CG element came from a Lightwave/ Maya Artist.

Prison Break – “Blue Screen Extension” – VFX Compositor

The back door of the stage was left open and so the Blue Translite was visible to the camera. There needed to be a exterior extension to show the harbor. Using location photography, the shot was composited using PHOTOSHOP and SHAKE.

The Stepfather – “Cell Phone Screen Burn” – VFX Compositor

The 'Low Battery' message was first created in PHOTOSHOP as a single frame graphic. The shot of the cell phone had to be tightly tracked in SHAKE so that the close-up of the graphic would not slide and would have the proper motion blur. Also there needed a small Color Correction to the battery symbol in the upper right corner from a full, green battery symbol to a one bar, red battery symbol.

Prison Break – “GPS Screen Burn” – VFX Compositor

GPS graphic was created, tracked and composited into the shot using SHAKE, AFTER EEFFECTS, and PHOTOSHOP.

Armored – “Telephone Numbers Paint Out” – VFX Compositor

On the two red banners, to screen left and right, there were Phone Numbers for leasing offices that were not allowed in the final film. The numbers were painted out in PHOTOSHOP and composited back in with SHAKE.

Prison Break – “Company Logo Paint Out” – VFX Compositor

In between the four men, screen center, there was a Dos Equis Sign that was not allowed to be seen in the final shot. The removal of the sign was done by creating a Clean Still in PHOTOSHOP and was composited into the shot with SHAKE.

Piranha 3D – “Whirlpool Descent Conversion” – Stereo Compositor

The Stereo 3D Conversion of Richard Dreyfuss in the boat was done using a proprietary technique while at inner-D. The technique used a Depth Map, derived from roto shapes, to drive a Displacement Function in order to create a Left and Right Eye. This process utilized applications such as NUKE, AFTER EFFECTS, MOCHA, and SILHOUETTE.
