Rizzolo Bros Circus

Compositing | Tracking | Modeling | Lighting & Texturing

Compositing exercise for integrating 3D elements in a live shot. I made a circus scene with day-to-night effect. Initially my idea was to make a nighscene only but after testing out daylight color correction I couldn’t decide which one to finish so I went for the transition.

SkillsThe footage was tracked with PF Track using mainly user tracks. I modeled and unwrapped the scene in 3DS Max, lighting and texturing were done in Maya (rendered with Arnold). Afterwards I merged the render passes in Fusion and I replaced the sky by keying the blue sky that was present in the initial shot. Color corrections were also done in Fusion. The day-to-night effect and editing was done in Premiere.
