Replace a boring sky, add that mountain into the flat landscape, or put a giant crater right next to the actor? It’s all possible with set extensions in DaVinci Resolve or Fusion Studio.
The complexity of the task varies depending on the shot. If the camera is moving, you need to do match moving or even camera tracking and build a full 3D scene. If you have actors moving in front of the set extension you may need to rotoscope.
In this tutorial, the camera remains on a tripod and there is enough space around the actor. Keeping it simple allows you to focus on integrating the new elements in the best possible way.
Color correction for matching black and white levels is the basis. In this tutorial, we even need to match green grass and use Fusion’s Hue curves for that.
Next, think about the sharpness of the foreground and background elements. A slight blur may be all you need to match your extension.
Atmospheric effects are very important and can help glue elements together. In this example, we can use the FastNoise tool to create a simple fog layer.
I am using Davinci Resolve Studio 16.1
I loaded Your Tutorial Package but if i want to use:
Shepp-stabilizizedLB.mov, Wind TurbinestabiliziedLB.mov and horses-stabilizedLB.mov an error message appears “Media offline”. Other files working well – also Originals from Pixabay are working. Can you help?
Perhaps that problem ?:
Hmm, not sure about this. Could be some bug. I tried it on Windows in 16.0. Maybe you can try to encode it into another format? Or use the Pixabay originals. If I remember correctly, I think I just did a simple stabilization on it with a tracker tool and shortened the clip a little bit.
Great tutorial! Thank you for all the time and effort you put into your tutorials. They are very helpful.
thank you for sharing this. Really interesting.
