What’s Matte Painting ? How does it work and digital matte paiting?
Well, matte painting is not what I do, but I thought you should know about it a little bit.
It’s widely use in film, movie, music video, even in the cinematic shots of big budget video games.
Matte painting has its roots in still photography. In the mid-19th century, photographers began using double-exposure techniques to composite two distinct images into one photograph. In the Victorian era, so-called spirit photography captured the imagination of the masses. In these photos, ghostly apparitions seemed to mingle with the living. They were, in reality, simple darkroom tricks, or what we now call special effects.
