This is Dave from Video –Fx-University.TK and this tutorial is a requested tutorial and basically what it is, is how to create an explosion behind a character. Now these two versions of this tutorial, there is an easy one and there is a hard one. And we start off of this, the tutorial first. Just get an idea of how to do it. So if I just got this photo, import, import file and I tell you what, I might import folder, okay. Now we got a folder in here for just open that up. Now for just put our background down, into the composition. See that we have got our background here.
Now this background was a something I liked to put together in Broise. I think I really do not have the time to do this properly with our cameras so I just made this little background, a bit of ground, a bit of sky and a sun. And this is what we are going to use for our first easy tutorial. Now, first off, we go to our stuntman, put your cheese or you put. On top the background. There he is. As you can see, that will simulate a green screen background. So first off, we have to reflect King and key light, take the eye dropper. Get rid of the green and there he is standing in front of the sun in the background. So if we just do a quick rerun preview we will se what we come back with.
Okay, guy, you see he stands and he gets thrown back. Now what we are going to do is put the explosion in front of him. So I have got to my project folder. And I got an explosion here. So I am going to place that on top. Okay. So the transfer most to at and move this forward to the foot where he starts to jump back, so just about there. We are going to move footage right on top of it. Just spliced it, size in front of him. As you can see, it does not do good at the moment because the explosion is in front of him. But we want that those explosions behind him. So if you grab this layer and put it down between the stuntman and the background, and there you have it, the explosion is now in front of him. So the explosion froze him back.
So that is basically at for this tutorial. It is very, very simple, very easy to do. It is basically a way to demonstrate on how to create on how to create an explosion using layers and I cronicate the green screen background. But if you want this project file, complete with the footage involved and you can get that from the website at Video-Fx-University.tk. And now I am going to move on to the second part of this tutorial on how to do it without a green screen. And this is going to be a little bit harder and a little bit time consuming. So see you for the next tutorial.
