was a very straightforward matchmove in Boujou using only Auto Features
(and a quick pass to delete jittery tracks in places where the waves
splash against the rocks) with elements composited in Shake.
smoke is created from an nParticles Hardware Render in Maya with
the colour variation and finishing touches done in Shake. The ship
is a simple 2D card rendered in Maya from the matchmove camera and
there is a bit of Shake rotoscoping done on the rock outrcop that
passes through the forground.
coastline footage is a "Daily Free Clip" from Artbeats,
sometimes good footage to practice tracking & comp.
