SIMULATING THE APPEARANCE OF RURAL ROADS

This report describes a method for making films to simulate the appearance of new transport systems in rural landscapes. The simulation films are made using the travelling matte process, which is a motion picture special effects technique. Film of an existing road of the correct standard, carrying traffic, is combined with film of the background landscape, so producing a simulation film. Two methods are briefly described, one using cine film, the other video. (TRRL)
