About the Book:

Compositing Visual Effects is an introductory book on digital compositing for visual effects that is designed specifically for newcomers to the industry. This book is digital compositing lite, designed to be fun and easy to read, yet full of essential concepts and terminology for those new to the industry, students looking to understand what role compositing plays in visual effects, or production professionals like directors and DP's that just want to understand what digital compositing is all about because it affects their productions. Eminently readable and highly informative.

This revised and updated second edition Compositing Visual Effects has been updated to include chapters on 3D and stereo compositing, planar tracking and digital capture as well as an in-depth look at how a VFX shot is produced from its inception to getting the shot’s final approval from the VFX supervisor. You can now have a look inside the world of VFX with interviews from the film’s Director, the cinematographer, the 3D Animator and the VFX Compositor.
