Video Effects and Compositing Techniques

Module code: G5032
Level 6
15 credits in autumn teaching
Teaching method: Lecture, Laboratory
Assessment modes: Coursework

This module covers the advanced areas of video production by looking, in detail, at advanced motion-based visual effects and the compositing of real and computer generated images. Topics covered include: matte acquisition, scripting, colour correction, image manufacturing, camera tracking and compositing.

Pre-requisite

3D Modelling and Rendering

Module learning outcomes

  • Understand the process of compositing computer generated images onto live-action video.
  • Understand how to isolate live-action from a colour-matte source for compositing.
  • Generate a motion-video based graphic (e.g. title sequence) using scripting, live action video and computer generated video.
  • Produce deliverable video, to a time constraint.
