    Nice.. seems so simple once someone points it out huh?
    So can you have your CG objects orbit around your “greenscreen footage” (gsf) by placing your (gsf) in a background and foreground object at the moments you want CG to pass in front or behind? does that make sense?

      Yep, that sounds like you got it. Sometimes it will make sense to place your footage on a plane object but it’s great to know the capabilities of the FG and BG object.

        You know, I slapped myself on the head, on my way to work yesterday thinking..

        Why not just use a plane?

        hehe. thanks for the heads up.

      Your welcome. Glad you found it useful! That’s one of the very reasons I made this site. When I first started I couldn’t find any resources for VFX and C4D especially integrating live action footage. So stay tuned for more :).
