Summary: This quick tutorial helps get your feet wet with 2D compositing in Blender. We start with doing a simple one-point-track in the motion tracking section of Blender. Then using the import images as planes add-on, we parent a death star image to our track. After that, its a simple matter of compositing the image with our footage, and adding some masks to increase realism. Enjoy!
In this quick VFX tutorial, use Blender's video sequence editor to do some fancy editing. After some quick masking work, combine everything together to create the illusion of using The Force. All done in Blender! Throw this effect in your short film or use it along side of Light it Up. May The Force be with you!
