Jet Fighter Visual Effects Build
This visual effects sequence presented features a meticulously crafted fighter jet, where the pilot was initially filmed against a green screen backdrop. Subsequently, I constructed the aircraft and its surrounding environment by adeptly integrating a collection of images. The wings were extracted from one particular image, then skillfully adapted within the 3D space of Adobe After Effects. Meanwhile, the fuselage was sourced from a separate image of a fighter jet, and the seat was ingeniously repurposed from an image of a roller coaster. Additionally, the sky backdrop and the Heads-Up Display (H.U.D.) graphics were obtained from Production Crate and were carefully modified to fit the scene. The final composition was assembled and rendered in After Effects, culminating in a seamless and dynamic visual effects shot.
