Workflow was: Stop-motion with an actual crawfish, shot on a Dragonframe rig -> image sequence -> laser printed onto cardstock (10 images per page) -> hand-colored with alcohol inks -> scanned -> made back into image sequence -> composited and mixed with color-corrected original footage.
Curious is anyone has go-to tricks compositing with stop-motion footage shot on a solid background? I don't have the best green screen setup at home. I've found that I get better results shooting on a bright white background, then stacking effects: 1) blast out the whites with some combination of brightness/contrast and selective color settings 2) invert channels 3) use Unmult to kill the (now solid black) background 4) invert channels back to positive. Doesn't work in all situations, but it did here since my final backgrounds were mostly black anyway.
