I have some basic questions on compositing, based on a few example shots below, and would like to use these to help guide my learning.
(above)In this first shot there are various UI elements super imposed over the footage I assume this is just basic compositing yes?
This shot (below) I am a little more uncertain about. The background behind the actor pixellates. Is this done via a mask of some sort kept around the actor, while applying an effect such as mosaic to the background possibly?
Thanks for your help and feedback.
Layers... That's it.
Roto or green screen the actor, apply effects to the background layer and add the foreground layers above the actor layer. Nothing to it but to do it.
If you work your way through the getting-started resources here, you'll get your specific questions addressed, since the first few items include two videos (by me) that show how to do such selective application of effects:
