At the end of the SowetoShorts Promo, client wanted a shot of a BIG ass plane taking off. We couldn’t get clearance to do this at OR Tambo or even Lanseria so I filmed some clouds as a background plate with a 5D, tracked the shot in Mocha Pro & added the Airbus A380 in After Effects CS6 using Element 3D. (The OBJ of the Airbus was available for free on-line.) Using the tracking data I was able to add the lens flare with Video Copilot’s Optical Flares by assigning a flare to a light source in the scene. This is the ungraded “clean” version of the comp.
