To address some questions about this image from The Healer Tutorial, I’ve made the Project File available to download. You just need to replace the footage with the video file inside the actual tutorial project.
The texture has also been changed to a static mask for distribution using the Auto-Trace Tool, although the actually texture can be acquired as part of our Evolution DVD along with many other great design elements. You can see a Comparison Here.
The only difference between this composite and the tutorial is the “cut map” used was modified for a larger “hole-in-the-face” and then the PreComp was used to matte the terminator skull into the shot. There is also a shadow layer used to make the cut appear deeper. Of course this was simply for entertainment and to show other possibilities.
