Andrew, is there any way you could provide some advice on how to do the shot tracking you did in mocha using the new Camera tracker that is built into CS6? I would really appreciate some advice! Thanks!

If you wanted, you could also adjust the brightness and make it slightly darker once the explosion goes off as if the camera is compensating for the exposure

Hey andrew, this tutorial has been very helpful but i got a problem..

WHENEVER I TRY DO DROP THE STOCK FOOTAGE, IT LOOKS VERY CLEAR, LIKE IT HAS 30% OPACITY

I TRY DUPLICATING THE FOOTAGE BUT IT DOESNT LOOK NATURAL, IT LOOKS VERY FAKE

I HOPE YOU GET MY MESSAGE
