Eat 3D Live Action and CG 2 – HD Video in 3D + Project Files
In this demonstration the instructor starts off by explaining the Red One camera and how it was used to capture the HD video. Then he goes into SynthEyes and explains everything needed to get a good track. Once the live footage is tracked, its on to Maya to use the camera animation with the provided 3d scene. After that he goes through rendering your scene in passes, and then compositing the elements in Combustion.
This tutorial is perfect for those who want a solid foundation on how to take HD video and incorporate it seamlessly into a 3d scene.
