Quote from: Corporal Hicks on Oct 11, 2016, 01:01:45 PMNext week I'm going to be chatting to Alien: Covenant vfx concept artist Wayne Haag. I'm writing up some questions now but I wanted to ensure you all had the chance to submit any questions. Obviously Wayne wont be getting into any specifics about the film but if you have any non-spoilery questions you'd like to ask, now is the chance!

QuoteHe ll explain me everything about matte and backing differencesMatte paintings are created during post-production and composited into the film afterwards. Nowadays they tend to be full 3d virtual environments rather than just flat 2d images as was the case in the past. Usually where you see a greenscreen, a matte painting will later take it's place.Backings are very large prints that are placed or hung on the set during actual filming. So for example, instead of a greenscreen behind a window you now have a very large canvas print of the exterior environment. Saves the trouble of later having to composite it in and gives the actors a more believable environment to work in than those rather unimaginative greenscreens. It does have it's limits however since you can't animate it or anything fancy like that.The reason I asked Wayne about it is because he mentioned working on some image files with really crazy high resolutions and file sizes. Concept paintings and even matte paintings generally don't need to be that big unless you are going to make really huge prints out of them.
