Using various roto and split-screen effects we transformed a two-man SWAT team into a full squad for this demo scene. Sam Loya reprises his role as the “guy who probably gets killed”, in this exciting industrial saga.
The main goal of this scene was to film everything as if we had a dozen guys instead of just two. Don’t just shoot things that will be easy to composite later, push the limits and make the scene more dynamic.
Stay-tuned for tips on using the new Roto-Brush in AE CS5 as well as other split-screen and masking solutions that can be achieved in all versions of After Effects.
