Currently we are working on a segment of the movie where the Sarco, Jared's ship, is chased by the Empire and eventually crashes on the planet below. We have about 50 GB of video to composite into this 22 second scene. There are several layers to be imported and adjusted prior to compositing. The planet is a layer. The ships are two layers each, keylight and fill light renders from Lightwave. The picture shows a composite of the planet, TIE fighter, and the Sarco. The exposure, brightness, and contrast are adjusted on each layer and then blended. The nebula background and blaster bolts are left to be added to the shot.
