P61-B Blackwidow Flyby (Breakdown)

The P61-B Flyby shot was a really interesting one. Because the footage quality was so bad, integration was really a challenge for me and i wanted to try that out.

First I converted the footage to single frames, then I did a matchmove for 3D Camera. Matchmove was quite funny and annoying at the same time, because most of the time the matchmove dont get solved. The image quality was so bad because of video compression blocks. I just picked a short sequence of the complete one that was really fine from the matchmove.

The P61-B Blackwidow is a lib model, i cleaned it up for that shot and have done new textures. For the lighting I used a basic Maya Keylight and AO indirect lighting technique. At the end i rendered out several passes and composed the stuff together.
