What you will learn
In this series of lessons we will learn how to use MatchMover to track an object as if it was our scene, then finish the shot with Maya and Composite. Using MatchMover we can find the movements of a real life object and move a 3D object to match. We will begin this project by manually tracking our sequence in MatchMover and exporting it for use in Maya. We will then take our solved camera into our Maya scene and move our object into place. We will then learn how to capture our 3D environment reflections and create some helpful matte layers. Once we have rendered our Maya sequence, we will learn how to combine all of our images in Composite. We will learn about processing our background footage to capture traveling mattes, as well as many different ways to combine our various mattes to create effects. We will finish by adding a silhouette and color correcting our images.
