I’ve combined C4d and footage before in Premiere / After Effects, but current vid is mostly animation, and I have just a few spots where I’d like to drop in greenscreened foreground character into c4d scene with animated background.
Since I’m finding C4d much quicker to work in, and most of it is animated, wondering if I can just drop the footage into c4d instead of compositing elsewhere.
I can keep both the physical greenscreen camera and the c4d virtual camera still to no perspective issues, but not clear if I would need to create a null object or plane of some kind in order to place the 2d footage within the scene.
Is there a good way to do this? Good reason NOT to do this even if it is possible? Does this necessitate instead doing the compositing elsewhere?
Also interested in perhaps doing another scene where foreground object is extruded. So, just like text can be readable from front, but extruded into z space, thinking of greenscreening person so they are visible from front, but extruded back with just black sides to match extruded text.
Anyone done this? Do edges get too messy, jump around since they are constantly changing when person moves? Better way to achieve this? Thinking of flipping them around so every time it flips, 2d character is wearing different clothes.
