Spider Web Sitar Asterix September 25, 2008Posted by William J. Meyer in Jack's Post-Production, Jack's Videos.
I’ve been going to town extending the terrain mentioned in the last couple blog posts. Now, every shot has its own needs in the visual effects realm, but I’ve lucked out on a batch of shots in this sequence. The original footage had these super-blah, empty, off-white skies that did nothing for the story. I’ve discovered that for the medium shots I can throw After Effects’ Extract filter on the footage, manipulate the white-point and softness, and pretty quickly acquire a good matte that even retains the finer detail in the actors’ hair. I am happily surprised.
Asterix: I guess the post title is a Hair reference.
