In the course, tasks include clean-up, 3D compositing, and problem solving. Kirill will guide you through finishing this shot after the 3D is rendered, starting with a walkthrough, cleaning up the scene, and final compositing the 3D signs. Various clean-up techniques are covered in order to prepare the clean plate for the compositing. Kirill shares several 3D multi-pass compositing methods to integrate the signboards of the shops on the street wall.
The supplied footage may be used for learning and, with the permission of Kirill (contact information is in the course), you may use your final composite on your reel.
