11:35 Week Four Project: Compositing with Masks
Vocabulary Alert: Compositing
Compositing is bringing two or more picture elements together to make a single image.
Compositing can be done with video by combining still images, graphics and video along with color corrections, special effects, etc… to create a seamless composite.
Using Pexels, or some of the images you have been shooting with your camera. Create your very own composite adding masks and animation.
This is a chance to experiment and playaround with the mask properties. I’ll circle around to help.
