How to put yourself into The Witcher

published on July 20, 2020

I've heard tales of your kind Witcher roaming the continent hey guys welcome back to another video today we're gonna be showing you how to put yourself into a trailer using a green screen and three simple steps step

One is to remove the original actor from the scene now you may not even have to do this if you find that your actor completely covers the original character then you don't have to do any painting the technique that you use for this

Completely depends on the individual shot one thing you could do is use elements from the scene that are already there and shift their position to cover up the original actor so for example in this clip duplicating the footage and

Masking out a bit of the armor then moving that layer into the correct spot depending on the motion you might have two motion track the new footage into place it might be easier to take a still of the scene and bring it into a photo

Editing program with a clone stamp tool paint the actor out then bring that back into hit film then you can just mask around the area you need to keep I did get lucky with this scene in that even though the pillar behind this guy's head

Is covered in the extended clip he actually just moves out of the way so I took a still of that and tracked it into the scene and got my clean plate without having to do any painting step two is to film your actor we're going to be using

The black magic pocket 6k camera and a 50 and a 24 millimeter lens when you film your actor it's important to get them as close to the position and size of the character in the scene as possible an incorrect camera or head

Angle will be impossible to line up if your actor is meant to be looking at something in the scene be sure to put a prop of some sort for them to focus on our eyes look different when they're focusing on something close versus far

Away even if it's in the same line of sight I had the shots up on a laptop so that I could continually reference them during filming step three is to composite your actor into the scene we have a more in-depth tutorial on chroma

Keane available in the card on-screen but the basic premise is this mask out the area you want to keep and key out the green using one of the available effects in hitfilm I'll motion track the character into the

Scene if needed then using color grading and color correction effects composite the actor into the clip I'll generally start with a curves effect to get the right amount of contrast then

Use another to get the color right we have a tutorial on curves if you're unfamiliar with how to use it if I find that the color is too strong or not the right hue I'll use the hue saturation and lightness effect to tweak it

After the color adjustments comes the light wrap effect this helps blend the color from the original trailer into the color of the new green screen footage I find that using multiple effects with various settings helps the light

Gradually increase and so look more realistic effects like lens blur and film grain can help aid in further matching the look of the two clips that's it for this tutorial let us know if you have any questions down below if

You missed the last time we did this we put ourselves in the Avengers trailer so be sure to check that out thanks for watching and we'll see you all in the next video
