Russ Gautier details the camera mapping workflow Perception used to map footage on the inside of the Marvel Studios logo. Russ shows a script to quickly create Object Buffers from individual objects (see the attached version of CV-Add to Object Buffer within the CV-OM Tools package). The object buffers are combined with 3D data from C4D within After Effects, and after the footage is aligned the After Effects output is reprojected within Cinema 4D to add reflections and global illumination.

Russ next shows a technique used in a FUI element for Batman v Superman - combining multiple C4D renders in After Effects with a Colorama effect animated via a modulo expression.
