Re: VFX Hacks

I know you don't believe us when we say this, but I'm gonna say it again, I learn more from an hour of you rambling at a mic than I did in the entirety most of classes in film school.

Also, for shits and/or giggles, cause you were talking about our shooting location... this is the raw plate.

So I'm gonna call it a win that nothing about the painting itself was odd enough to at least verbally call out.

Re: VFX Hacks

Yeah, Teague just showed us why he IS a VFX artist. It's the insane attention to detail, and experience that tells him how the shot should look like.
I wasn't planning on watching the walkthrough all the way through, but I did, and I'm glad I did. Kinda makes me want to go back into VFX, because it's calming and fun to change a shot so dramatically, without anyone ever noticing you did.

Hat's off.

EDIT:

BDA, I'll say this much. I didn't notice anything off about the plate, apart from the colouring and the things Teague pointed out, but at no point did I think it was tampered with at all, so good job.

Re: VFX Hacks

Watching this evening, I can see why there were some spiteful words for Adobe earlier today.

Edit: BDA, when Teague found the concrete parking thing, I went back to the plate shot you posted. I just glanced before and saw the background replacement of it, but now I see how much you added to the buildings, wow. Nice job on the matte, sir.

Re: VFX Hacks

Great stuff Teague, it always boils down to what the lights doing with these shots, if you can figure that out, you are laughing smile

Re: VFX Hacks

If anyone's curious, this is where the shot eventually wound up. Not the final grading, but roughly what it'll be.

There's still a million details I'd love to add, but I have the rest of the short to make so y'know, gotta move on.
