New Sky Replacement

I’m pretty sure the next tutorial is going to be on advanced sky replacement.

We’re going out to film today, but here is an example on some behind the scenes footage. Notice the telephone poles on the left side still appear in front of the clouds even though they are small and nearly transparent. Using a procedural matte allows us to control the blending between foreground and backgrounds. This Matte generation can be used for so much more as well, I promise this will be a must see tutorial.

I figure it is about time to update that old tutorial with some new tricks and treats. Not even a single joke in that tutorial…

Sam Loya said he be in the tutorial but that it would cost 20M… All I had was a warm root beer, so filming begins at 4pm.

I'm Sorry Shape Layers! I love you!

At first, they seemed cool enough but after accidentally adding shape layers to my comps, instead of masks, I lashed […]
