Just the tip: White balance, scale and focus reference card for easy compositing

Here’s a short tutorial and giveaway of a digital (and physical) asset I use to help me composite greenscreened actors and CGI elements into a physical scene. This tutorial covers using the reference cards in Adobe After Effects, Video Copilot Element 3D and the included Lumetri Color, Camera Lens Blur and Match Grain effects.

I demonstrate how to composite the free Star Wars BB-8 model from VC’s Star Pack into a regular shot.

Expression used to roll BB-8:

diameter=100;

pi=Math.PI;

circumference=diameter*pi;

rot=360/circumference;

Xpos=thisComp.layer(“Element NULL”).transform.position[0]*-1;
scalePercent=thisComp.layer(“Element NULL”).transform.scale[0]/100;
rot*Xpos/scalePercent





Here you'll find a bunch of tutorials for using After Effects (mainly). I have a YouTube channel, called ShiveringCactus (long story - not funny anymore) where I post the videos.
