Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"One of the best compositing books out there... If you consider yourself an upper intermediate level user or less, I'd recommend this book. After reading it, you will understand scientifically what is going on under the hood of your favorite imaging and video apps. Highly recommended. Five Cows."

High on the reading list of top digital effects facilities such as ILM, and used as a textbook in colleges and training institutes as well, Digital Compositing for Film and Video addresses real-world problems of digital compositing with an elegant blend of theory and practical production methods.

Exclusive to this edition is an entirely new chapter devoted to CGI compositing with major sections on multi-pass and 3D compositing, a new section on stereo compositing, 7 new 3D compositing QuickTime movies on the DVD, and more.

Written by Steve Wright, a senior compositor and 2D technical director with over 70 feature films and 70 television commercials in his production credits, this book encapsulates years of production experience into an easy to read and highly informative book. Combined with the included DVD-ROM, it provides a phenomenal learning experience.

Synopsis:

This practical, hands-on guide addresses the problems and difficult choices that professional compositors face on a daily basis. You are presented with tips, techniques, and solutions for dealing with badly shot elements, color artifacts, mismatched lighting and other commonly faced compositing obstacles. Practical, in-depth lessons are featured for bluescreen matte extraction, despill operations, compositing operations, as well as color-corrections. The book is presented entirely in an application-agnostic manner, allowing you to apply lessons learned to your compositing regardless of the software application you are using.
