Very cool VFX Mr. Daigon
But there is something which you can improve in this. The shadows of 3D elements are dark and diffused but the shadow of girl is very crisp and sharp and is not visible clearly. Try to match that as it will look much better. Also in the first bullet shot, the edges of Muzzle flash footage are visible. Try to make a mask with some feather on it.

I am a keen learner and am very keen on pursuing a career in the animation industry. My artistic skills are mostly self-
taught. I have a deep knowledge base of Photoshop, Maya, Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Final Cut Pro and Sony Vegas.

Thanks for the critique Vishesh, but this was just an exercise of using the Camera Tracker in conjunction with Element to see how they performed together.

I will let you know when its a project that deserves feedback :D

No John. The footage of the green screen and the virtual set was downloaded from a wonderful site called Hollywood Camera Work. It has amazing DVDs on directorial staging, blocking and visualization techniques. As well as effects work.

The content of the course reminds me of the great directing and camera work in such shows as Law and Order and Mash.

Ooppss..!! Sorry for that Mr. Daigon :D
I am waiting for the final footage now :D

Well Hollywood camera work gives very good exercising footage. I am learning compositing these days so that I can make optimum use of their free footage. And their DVD's are just awesome. They have explained everything pretty well and some minute details for compositing. Great !!
