New course: Compositing in After Effects: Truck Explosion, Part 1

site news | February 28, 2020

This course, taught by Kirill Pleshakov, is focused on compositing a live action miniature explosion filmed at a scale of 1:13. The real explosions are filmed with multiple cameras from different angles, as each explosion object is destructed with one take.

In order to get two heavy R3D cameras behind the tempered glass at a proper scale for the miniature explosion, compromises are made for the lenses and position. This ends of leading to a lot of work that needs to be done in post production to deal with the imperfections of matching. This matching and manual warping of the static elements (to match the moving exploding elements) will be the main aspect of these 17 frames of challenge.
