Hi, my name is Alvaro, I've been working a personal project in which I try to remake the True Detective opening titles using the Sons of Anarchy theme.
Im stuck with this particular shot, and I need some backup with it. How would you achieve this or something close? I dont get how the double exposure is used there, also though about a full 3d projection using 3 main layers (ground, footage and clouds).
Thanks in advance!
I'd use a duplicated layer of the sky shot, using it as a luma matte or a luma inverted matte of the person. You'll probably have some masking to do on the person as well, and you'll want to tweak the matte with the Levels effect, and probably tweak its opacity, too.
What about the movement of the shot, would you composite everything and then project it into 3D space? or just animating scale/position? Im not much into 3D projection inside AE, I use Nuke/Maya for that.
