So, I'm not 100% sure this is the correct place for this but I know After Effects has definitely got to be a step in the process somewhere.
I'm wanting to add CG wings to a person in some footage. I know enough of 3DS Max to model the wings and I'm pretty proficient in After Effects.
Similar to this... I know there is a level of practical effects to this too but this is similar to what I'm trying to achieve.
My question is, what is the basic process for doing something like that, and what programs would be used in addition to After Effects?
