Creating a Set Extension with a Digital Matte Painting

Turn your small town into a city skyline with VFX!

The challenge some filmmakers face is not being able to shoot in the exact perfect location for the story.

That may be budget limitations, it may be the story is set in a different time period, or even another planet.

So a set or a skyline may need to be edited or replaced to put the footage into the right setting.

As said in the video, VFX is about problem solving. And this is one problem we can solve with Fusion.
