An in-depth look into using fusion to clean up aerial shots.

This tutorial also covers techniques that allow for easy retouching & overlays onto any type of moving clip. This is aimed at people who actively work on shots integrating CG into real footage. No advanced knowledge of Fusion is required, but some awareness of compositing is essential.
