Creating a moving shot that is made up of disparate elements and looks as though it was taken all at once with a single camera is the very core of visual effects compositing. To make the effect look natural compositors also need a deep understanding of how to match color light and phenomena specific to the camera including grain and depth of field. Matching requires no special knack; for example you can learn to effectively match color even if you have trouble seeing color accurately. So join Mark Christiansen as he teaches you how to composite 2D or 3D foreground objects to a background scene with After Effects and seamlessly match light color depth of field and noise so that every element looks natural.
