The Cinematic team and I have figured out a way to salvage our footage. There was a lot of trial and error but I edited one clip (and still working on that one clip) and added leaves using photoshop brushes. Unfortunately they don’t work with After Effects so I messed with the clip in Photoshop.
After talking to the Animation team they gave me some pointers on how to make the process better and faster.
The screenshots below are WIP examples of the leaves without color grading or roses added.
