Overview: Composite 3 different images using live or cg elements.
CG on Live
For this image, I found an architectural interior shot online and I wanted to composite a cg clock onto the wall. The left wall had a lot of empty space and a light coming from the top which made it seem like it should have something on it.
I modeled and rendered a pendulum clock in blender using this base image.
And aligned and lit it using Blender’s Cycles renderer with 5000 samples.
I also did a shadow pass in Blender by cropping out a section of the original picture and using it as a normal map.
UV mapped it to a plane right behind the clock to simulate the roughness of the wall and rendered a shadow pass.
Here is the final image with all of the elements combined and color corrected.
Live on CG
For this image, I found an image of a comedian in front of a green screen
And modeled a stage in Blender
Then a made a matte
Then I combined, color corrected, eroded the edge, blurred both the foreground and background to get this final image
Live on Live
For this image, I used a concert as a base image
I found this goofy green screen image
Created the matte
Then color corrected, scaled, translated, eroded the edge and blurred to get this final image
