This week I thought I would share a variety of selection tricks I used often in my compositing work and right here on Master FX Training. How something is selected depends on the type of image and subject you are trying to extract, so I have have here about a half dozen common scenarios I often run into and the techniques I have developed for each.
What you will learn:
• Luminance Based Selections
• Channel Tricks
• Quick Selection and Refine Edge
• Layer Mask Tricks
• and much more!
