Motion Track Fire Composite TEST in After Effects + Mocha AE
A simple test of compositing fire (from Action Essentials 2 by VideoCoPilot.net) into a handheld shot using Adobe After Effects.
The shot was tracked using Mocha - I could have used the Foundry Camera Tracker but I didn't feel it was necessary, and besides - I love Mocha!
I created some heat haze distortion and reactive lighting on the ground to blend the composited fire elements into the scene a bit better...mainly because the live action footage was very washed out as I just grabbed a quick shot without adjusting exposure or bothering to put a ND filter on!
