Default Compositing test

I figured some time ago that I wanted to do some matchmoving and compositing, so I got statred with this cool robot model that a friend of mine had modeled and I rigged a couple of months earlier. I filmed my lawn, managed to track the camera after some troubles and then began animating. I got tired of animating after a few hours (This usually happens when I work at home).
This week I decided to finish up this little project and actually get to the point when I could do some compositing. I finished the animation, rendered it out and finally got to the part I was aiming for to begin with.
And now after a few evenings of hard work, I present to you 12 seconds of robot on my lawn.



I should do more to it, like fixing proper sun reflections and footprints on the ground, but I'm tired of this robot now and eager to move on to new things. I'm still quite satisfied with the outcome, considering it's my first actual compositing work. =3

Very awesome!!

It's really well animated, and the compositing is sweet! The lighting is a little off, as you noted, and I think fixing that could really make for a convincing effect. Maybe tint the robot a very slightly towards green to keep him from popping out from the plate. Did you use Matchmover for this?

Thank you! =D

Funny that you mention a green tint. I did render out a pass of indirect light from the grass, giving the lower parts of the robot a really sweet green reflection. It seems though that something must've happened to it when I did my final render. I didn't notice this until now.

Over all though, grading and such isn't really something that I should do since I'm partly colorblind and can have real troubles when it comes to these things.
