Digital Compositing for Film and Video is a hands-on, practical,
how-to guide that addresses the problems and difficult choices
faced by the professional compositor in real-life situations. It
presents techniques, tricks, and solutions for dealing with badly
shot elements, coloration artifacts, and mismatched lighting that
bedevil actual compositors working on real shots. Readers are
offered in-depth practical methods for matte extraction, despill
procedures, compositing operations, and color correction--the "meat
and potatoes" of all digital effects. Compositing is the artistic
blending of several disparate elements from a variety of sources
into a single image while making all the component elements appear
to be in the same light space and shot with the same camera. When
confronted with a bad composite any observer will recognize that
something is wrong--the artist will know what is causing the
problem, and the technician will know how to fix it. A good
compositor must be both an artist and a technician. Written by a
senior compositor with over ten years' experience in both feature
film and broadcast television, this book offers a broad range of
alternative solutions that will save hours of fiddling with
composites trying to get them to look right when the basic tools
aren't working. A companion CD-ROM provides examples of the many
topics covered in this book.
