In this set of videos we leverage 3D camera tracking data to replace a blown out sky with a higher dynamic range one.

Exercise: The videos in this section are already very much geared to a step-by-step approach and so the best class exercise would be to reproduce those steps with student footage. If tracking in After Effects and compositing in Fusion (as described in the videos), just make sure you render the final animated sky in After Effects at the exact same pixel width and height as the source footage (the footage with the sky you’re looking to replace).
