Rotoscoping is the rotated projection of a sequence of usually photographed action image frames so that the artist can trace from the frame, or create an image to superimpose on it. Rotoscoping of characters or objects produce alpha mattes for VFX Compositing, Stereo Conversion or Colour Correction.
Paint and Prep work:
This involves the Digital Paint-in of missing elements or paint-out of unwanted elements. The Process helps create mattes that accurately reflect the motion of a particular object over a series of frames.
By creative sleight of hand, the Oceanstorm Films VFX dept can remove wires and markers without jitter and with proper re-graining.
Match Move :
Match moving is a cinematic technique that allows the insertion of computer graphics into live-action footage with correct position, scale, orientation, and motion relative to the photographed objects in the shot.
Compositing is the Creative process of assembling and combining filmed or rendered elements from multiple sources, to create a final life-like illusion or fantastical visual effects, delivered as a set of still or moving pictures. It combines visual elements from separate sources into single images, often to create the illusion that all those elements are parts of the same scene.
Deformation, is the process where we track the deform-able object or character’s component such as the skin, or a facial expression to match the original camera footage. This process allows the VFX element to be added onto the character’s skin or the deform-able object very accurately.
