I am working on a visual FX shot where I must place a CGI character behind an object in a shot where blue screen was not used. Is there software that can do this for me so that I don’t have to go frame by frame. There is some 30,000 frames!
If you’r going to have a CGI character, than I assume that you have some short of 3D animation software. If the object that you need to put the CGI behind is stationary, than you could set up a non-rendered object, that is the shape of the in-video object, so that when you composit in video, the rendered CGI eliments would be blocked out by the non rendered object, and it should intermingle pretty cleanly.
