Creating a simple plate
on Mar 14, 2012 at 6:47:24 am

I have a video footage (almost static shot) where a rounded wall of a building is to be placed a plate on carriyng texts like Dept of physics...

I have other department's plate like Department of "Chemical & Biochemical processing"...and that is over a straight wall.

Can anybody give me any idea?

--- Hi there --- hard to tell without seeing the job but suggest something like this .........

1 ) --- take a good close up shot of plate on straight wall to make sure texture etc matches

2 ) change lettering in photoshop

3 ) insert as a 3d layer into AE and bend in 3D space to match curve on wall ( do not know how to do this myself but there will be a way - mostly I use Flint )

4 ) track plate to movement in shot or stabilise shot if static shot is preferred

5 ) colour correct as required to match shot / lighting using animated matte if recessary.

6 ) add grain if required to match shot

7 ) burr if required to match shot

8 ) soften matte edges as required so that plate does not look stuck on

9 ) add shdow to match that observed on shot in part 1 ( to match lighting on curved wall -- et voila -- job done....

--- thats my tuppence worth --- probably not too difficult though mihht need a wee bit of care to make sure its seemless.

-------ll the best --
