In this complete tutorial, we will take you through the process of creating a CG Street Race shot, using a background footage plate and various 3D elements. We will start by preparing the footage for use in tracking the camera movement. We will then track the footage using Boujou tracking software. Once tracked, we will take the 3D camera data into 3D Studio Max and create a basic proxy scene and animation. We will then import hi res 3D car models into 3D and link them to our proxy animation. We will also light the scene to help blend the 3D assets into the BG footage. Once the 3D assets are ready, we will render out the elements using multipass rendering and bring them into After Effects for compositing the shot. You will learn how to layer multipass renders and how to use layer modes for the various elements. Then we wil apply various post production treatments including post-motion blur, color correction and audio. Once you have stepped through the entire process, you will be left with a believable CG shot, for use in your showreel or projects….
