WIP: animation/compositing project



This is another in a series of process-oriented projects I'm developing for the new demo reel.

This particular one started its life as a rotoscoping/match-moving animation project (the original animation can be found here). I decided to expand the scope to include compositing, lighting and texturing; although the primary focus is rendering the character and background separately and combining in post.

As this develops further, I'll be posting the other portions of the process.

Great stuff! I loved the look and feel of everything, I especially enjoyed the guy sitting in the chair with the drawings on the wall.Let’s face it: roto scoping is a drag. You can put countless hours of work into cutting elements out from even a few seconds of your footage, and it comes out badly more often than it doesn’t. You want to scream and rip out your hair, not to mention kill the guy who shot the footage and said “We’ll fix it in post.”But don’t sweat it. We’ve got you covered! VFX and composting expert Pete O’Connell shows you advanced techniques for rotoscoping in After Effects that will change the way you think about one of the most challenging tasks for any compositor. Pete uses his unique style to show you the tricks he’s picked up and created for big-budget Hollywood features including Stranger Than Fiction, The Fountain, Just Like Heaven, Across the Universe, Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, and the highly acclaimed.
