Session 4: Matte Painting

Learn how to create a proffesional looking matte painting.  For use in After Effects. Software used is photoshop cs4. However the basics color correcting and perspective alignment can be applied to any program. I highly recommend you read this tutorial and many other on matte painting if you are going to be doing alot of visual effects. Its one of the harder concepts to grasp since it doesn't involve alot of technical work but rather more intuative modification of things. It's really up to you, the more time and detail you put in the better it will be. Anyways have fun :) .... And happy valentines day.. wait, yes its 1 am, ok happy valentines day!
