Tracking-comping Essay

Hello Artists,

I did a while ago but never showed here. Its a simple test of tracking and addition of 3d on top of live action. The model is my wife, Caroline.

Softwares used:

PFTRACK - amazing to track 3d geometry.
Zbrush - for the hole in the forehead
Digital Fusion - comping the passes and addition of grain.
XSI - for everything else.

The link for the Quicktime, click on image:



Thanks a lot for viewing guys.

Mario

Hello Guys,

SILVERWING, Thanks a lot man. it is short indeed Ive been doing a lot of those lil tests with live action so I focus on setup rather than rendertime but its a lot of fun. thanks a bunch

FOANE, Thank you very much!!
I recorded the footage in a dv cam, put it into digital fusion for a bit of treatment and then exported the footage to xsi. then i built a simple mesh for the head based in the first frame and sent it to pftrack.. there i tracked the geometry into the footage and sent it back to xsi. Next step was to light it to match the environment and then sent off to Zbrush for a bit of detailing. then it was DF again for comping the passes and adding a matching grain.

Thanks a lot for viewing this mates

saludos

Mario
