A common VFX task is screen replacement.
Sometimes the elements seen on a computer, phone, or TV screen in a movie aren’t done while it’s shooting.
Or the lighting conditions might actually make it hard to get good quality recording of the screen or subjects.
Either way, replacing a screen is a pretty simple task. Even if your camera is moving.
The planar tracker tool within Fusion has a ton of settings that allows you to do most of the work directly in one node, if you want to.
