Here, how does this one feel:
I think the reason it felt so odd was because the focal lenghts didn't match on fg and bg, this should be closer to the real thing. Also, I planar-tracked the bg rather than a two-point track I had before, then used a slight multiply expression on the output cornerpin values to fake-offset it into the z-axis.

Aren't the particles floating in the air too big ?

This is a pretty quick WIP, only started it after lunchtime today. Just been looking at it all day, so don't really know what I'm looking at anymore haha.
It's a greenscreen shot, the two versions are just one without the fire & smoke.
Things I'm aware of: the glistening eyes, some keying improvements needed, more work on the lightwrap stuff etc. Also, beware of the shit grade and vimeo's very kind darkening of videos.
But overall, how does that feel to you guys? Which version do you prefer?

In the fire version, it does have some fire casting some light on his face, just probably too much fire behind him to notice. I'll see how it feels on the fire-free version, probably try and do it a bit more nicely.
Ahh a lot of mixed opinions, but I do think I'll take the fire out. As martin said, there's a wide shot from behind him where the house is burning in front of him almost straight after, that'll be the big epic shot out of these two.
Either way, also been messing around with the camera and background placement/scale, something definitely doesn't work. Had this problem on other shots before, it's really hard to judge how a background should sit behind him when it's just the greenscreen behind on the footage haha. Tomorrow I'll drag the girlfriend out into a street, match the focal length and angle and use that as reference
Should be able to make more progress after the weekend
