VFX & Chill: The Mandalorian
In this week’s episode of VFX & Chill, Seth and Hashi recreate effects from The Mandalorian! As always, their show is highly entertaining as they create VFX live. Plus, see Pedro Pascal guest stars as a hologram!
As you may know, The Mandalorian is shot in front of a giant LED screen. Seth, Michael, and Hashi explain how interactive lighting works. It runs live from a game engine during production. It’s amazing technology.
They track some faces with the latest GeoTracker for After Effects plugin. Then, they track a Mandalorian mask and Grogu head over Joel & Ellie’s heads from The Last of Us. In addition, they texture the Mandalorian helmet in Element 3D from Video Copilot. Finally, the guys composite the shot with SuperCompand finish the shot using Colorista, both included in Red Giant Complete. This is the Way.
Yes, there’s a lot going on, and you’ll learn a lot! And, if you’re a fan of Star Wars, this episode is a must-see.
