Animators love to reanimate scenes of their favourite shows, bringing a twist of their own style in it.
The artist in this case wanted her animation to appear in a real life setting even combining the clay animation with it, but didn’t know how to do it. That’s where I come in.
I offered her solutions to save her main animation in alpha channels and for the clay animation to take pictures of it in a green background, she agreed and sent me the following mp4 files each including their own character set to appear in the scene.
I bring all the files to After Effects and begin the composition process. I had difficulty with the robot and the little ball man file as there were two distinctive green coloured backgrounds for the keylight to register. In order to fix this I brought these files to Photoshop and selected the subjects, and began painting with one green colour. This process took around 10 minutes.
