Tools to match one foreign part into an image (?)

i just want to make sure, that when i try to put, like a person into a totally different background, i don't forget any obvious tools.
(assuming that at least the perspective and the lightning is pretty close. adding shadows to the floor e.g. are just mandatory)

- hue/satuaration
- selective color
- curves
- levels
- shadow/highlights
- highpass
- d&b
- transform tools (warp, free t, liquify)

these are the tools i right now think of, when taking care of my intruder.

what did i forget?

don't quote me but it seems like he corrected the masking on the full video but it has been awhile since I've seen it.

Re: Tools to match one foreign part into an image

Heh heh. I never used "match color" for what it's intended to be used for. I used to use it to change the color of a shirt (or whatever) to match a color swatch. It works pretty well (as long as your mask is not sloppy) Now I use B&W in CS3 for the same thing... matching to a color swatch. (Also not what it's intended for). You can make great alpha masks w/B&W too, BTW.

Hi

Well one of the most important things in my opinion is that you match the blur level.

sometimes you need to apply just a tad (0,3 pixels) gaussian blur to make the images match 100 %.

ya your so right...even tho i kinda hate this step...cause if one part is so super crisp it's always a harsh sacrifice blurring it for the sake of the final composition
