ok here what i want i want to create an effect of a hot turblent atmosphere obviously more distortion further away from teh camera

but i want some actors int eh foreground with minimal distortion jstua s you would iamgine

is there anyway dfx can recognise depth in real video footage

or am i goin to have to use a load of front projection planes with the footage mapped onto them at the aproxiamte right distances from teh camera and export with the depth info from that?

and jsut to reitterate dfx+ can create a hot tublent atmosphere type effect?

Check out my tip on for how to do a turbulent heat haze.

I would also reccomend just trying a key first, and see if that will allow you to extract the actors and place them on top.
