Skillshare – Bringing 3D Objects Into Live Action Footage | After Effects | Cinema4D | VFX |

Hello! My name is Manning Moore! In this class, we will go over the basics of how to bring 3D elements into a 2D live action scene. We go through 3D tracking a shot, animating 3D objects and compositing all of the elements together to look realistic.

This class is aimed more towards beginner to low intermediate compositors and animators. I will be using After Effects and Cinema4D and my compositor and 3D modeling and animation software, along with Octane as a renderer. There are plenty of free programs out there that can accomplish everything that we do in this class. Blackmagic Fusion, Hitfilm and Natron are all great compositors that are free. Blender 2.8 is an amazing free 3D program as well.

Bring 3D models into live action environments!
