Hey guys,

I'm still trying to crack the multi cam projection thing.

Here's the test files that i'm working with:


I feel so close but i still can't seem to get it right.

Notice in frame 1 the odd grey shape in the shadows, and the last frame speaks for itself, i'm trying to mask this part out.

Hope someone can take a look and point me in the right direction

Cheers - Dave.

Really like the use of the lower levels, works well, though a little distorted.

On a final note, remember to try and be as photo-realistic as possible, also note the ratio/size needs to be more appropriate to matte painting

Good luck - Dave.

Hey Dave thanks for the feedback .....just want to clarify some of ur suggessions...what do u mean by 'just have an open wall' do u mean not have any architectre n just the caves rock face? Also what is the ratio/size of a matte I not know wat it is.

Hi thanks,

Greenhouse I'll be updating shortly. I've had two things i had to get sorted over the last week, one's well and truely sorted and the second, an issue with my website is in the process of getting resolved.

Once my websites back up and running in the next few days i'll be steaming my way back on track


By open wall i mean literally take it away, only the right side that is Only a suggestion though. The ratio/size of matte varies but something around the following widescreen formats is recommended:

2048 x 1107 (1.85:1 ratio)

2048 x 871 - (2.35:1 ratio)

Though sometimes i've heard people saying they prefer to see full-ap at 2048 x 1556 for portfolios and demo reels.

Cheers -Dave.

oh ....so is it k if i have it verticle? Im guessing not...but do let me know 'coz then my composition will have to change

I think it is not a problem to let it vertical as long as in step 4 u'll do a vertical pan at 16:9 ratio- from top to bottom or reverse.

awesome. I think that a water element and this architecture really work well together.
