Hello. I know there are a million forum posts about screen replacement. This one, hopefully, is a little different.
I'm wondering how to get a more realistic composite for an HDTV screen replacement. Motion tracking I know, and it looks good. Motion blur, not a problem. My issue is things always look flat – like they've been digitally pasted on the screen. When trying to figure out why, I'm guessing it's because there's no natural luminance coming from the object. For instance, a tv that's on should be casting some light on the surface in front, etc. Subtle stuff, to integrate it into the scene.
What are some techniques you guys use to create a more realistically integrated composite? I hate how flat and pasted on my stuff looks (even if it's tracked accurately, with motion blur). Thanks all!
