Digital Compositing


Digital compositing is nothing but a simple process of integrating the images from several multiple sources into a single, which is seamless as a whole. A list of techniques and methods are available for the digital compositing. There are several digital compositing tools such as paint programs, color correction utilities, morphing tools, matte-extraction software, and general-purpose compositing packages. The digital compositing is of two types such as node-based compositing and layer based compositing.

First, the node based compositing represent an entire composite such as tree graph linking the entire media objects and including the effects in a procedural map etc. This type of compositing automatically allows the flexibility and modification of the parameters are also included. The main function of the Node-based compositing packages is to handle the key framing, layer-based compositing packages etc. The layer-based compositing represents each media object in a composite as a separate layer in a unique manner without any complications. This type of compositing is well suited for both two dimensional and three-dimensional effects, which are used in the motion graphics. The usual process of scaling, retouching and color correction of the images is also included in this digital compositing.
