Tired Of Roto! Show Me Some Depth Map Generators
Posted 01 December 2013 - 12:02 PM
Shots are all still with no panning and we have two subjects talking to each other against landscape. Shot does indeed look flat.
Anyway I have no desire to roto this nor I can track a shot to generate depth map so I was wondering if someone knows some affordable solution to generate proxy depth maps. I know there is some haze plugin for Photoshop that removes haze on landscapes and it can also generate a depth map but its for single frame. Well maybe it works with Photoshop video I have to try. I have no access to Silhouette S3D either.
Is there way to do this in Fusion maybe? I never tried.

if shots are still with no panning....it's probably possible to create a difference matte combined from various frames....so at least your moving actors are auto roto'd
then I would be tempted to piece together some proxy geometry and using matte's for trees ect to get some depth values from fusion 3d scene....then add a depth blur or some fog
to really add some depth you could have some 3d particles floating in the background as pollen ect
also grading can add some depth cues....usually warm up the foreground a bit and cool off the background

as a rule if i have any influence on the shooting...or shoot myself...I try to remember to shoot a clean plate on locked off shots just in case something like this comes up
