Matchmoving is the art of matching CG elements to live-action footage. When done right, it’s invisible -- hence, not glamorous. (Making it a great way to break into the effects industry.) Already a pro? Chances are you’ll be called upon to matchmove at least once in a while, and it’s easy to get in over your head. Now, one of the field’s leading experts teaches all you need to know to do it right: concepts, software, workflow, troubleshooting, and more.
Straight from leading matchmoves on Hellboy, Tim Dobbert illuminates everything from 2D tracking and 3D calibration to set prep and matchamation.
