It happens—the footage you’re required to work with is a bit sub-par. This may be due to budget restrictions, time limitations, miscommunication, on-set accidents, old film or video technologies, or naiveté in the realm of visual effect shooting. Nevertheless, you, the visual effects compositor, are tasked to make the shot work. While most visual effects compositing books and tutorials cover common workflows and the specifics of a particular software package, Advanced Visual Effects Compositing: Techniques for Working with Problematic Footage concentrates on visual effects problem-solving. Thanks to advances in digital compositing, there is a solution for every problem that arises, no matter how daunting.
