This is the first tutorial I’ve done for the blog, and I plan to do many more so please leave comments or messages to let me know what you think. It was done on the fly, so there are plenty of “ums” and “ahs”, and a few times I even get stumped on things. However, this tutorial will teach you both the basics as well as the mentality behind doing 3D projection timelapse setups. Even if you aren’t a compositor, as a visual filmmaker it’s good to know that you have these options in your proverbial bag of tricks and knowing what’s entailed so when you’re shooting in the field you’ll know how to shoot for post.
