One of the most common visual effects tasks is to replace an image or video in a shot with another—be it a computer screen, a picture on a wall, a bumper sticker on a car, etc. This project-oriented course walks you through the major steps of replacing screens in After Effects, including tracking a screen in mocha AE, matching the new display to the depth-of-field blur and lighting of the original shot, and then cutting out a hand obscuring the screen using the Roto Brush and Refine Edge. A bonus movie at the end of the course discusses alternative approaches, including a demonstration of using reversible stabilization in Warp Stabilizer VFX for the tracking portion of the shot.
This course was created and produced by Chris and Trish Meyer. We’re honored to host this content in our library.
