Thanks Walter. I'd like to have the look of the stock footage, but with more control. Mostly, I want to add an obscuration layer (specifically a photo) in 3D so the lights can pass over and around it.
Aliasing after capturing to 10 bit

I think this is a workflow problem. My sequence is in 10 bit uncompressed because it originated on digibeta and I want to maintain the highest quality. I got footage on DVCPro50 which I took in via AJ
