Next Steps: The lighter gravel area towards the back of the shuttle will be darkened to blend with the tarmac.
Here's a quick test of compositing a Space Shuttle rendered in Lightwave 3D to a clean plate using Adobe After Effects CC. Camera tracking was first attempted with Mocha but I settled with AE Camera Tracking as it yielded better results. This was likely due to the lack of good reference points in the scene. I used multiple pass renders including beauty, alpha, shadow and ambient occlusion to give me more flexibility when compositing.
