3D Compositing

This video was made for my 3D Compositing and Visual Effects course. The background animation plate was given to us, and I modeled the car, crates, and did the animation, then composited it from render layers. I used a total of 7 layers, namely: particlePass, reflectionPass, specularPass, occlusionPass, diffuseNoShadowPass, shadowPass, backgroundPlate. In After Effects, I also had to add a mask to the shadow pass to remove the double shadows made by the car plus the background plate's building shadow.
