Hi all, I want to create this effect in Maya if possible as it needed for my documentary about aliens.
An alien creature stands on a bed and whilst it is cloaked ( not visible ) I want to create the impression of it's feet in the mattress and sheets as it climbs on. The sheets will be very thin and as un-creased as possible on the live action footage. I am looking to render out these footprint type impressions and comp them onto the live action footage.
Can anybody point me in the right direction with how to achieve this. I am a compositor by trade but I know a little Maya 2011 (mental ray )from University, is this something relatively easy to achieve?
