The concept of compositing was born at the end of the 19th century, with artists such as George Méliès.
It was then developed by technical innovators such as Petro Vlahos.
These early pioneers and their techniques still influence the way we work in compositing today!
At WLAB we now use digital compositing software to combine multiple source images, such as digital matte paintings, full CG environments, CG creatures, and live action plates to produce a credible and photorealistic final image.
Compositing is one of the last stages of post-production; hence, a compositor is one of the last people to touch a scene before it reaches the movie screens.
