    Default How do you tell the focal length, of cartoon characters?

    Basically I have a project, where I have to put an animated cartoon character into a video, next to an actor, and have them interact. However, when shooting the actor, I want to match the focal lengths. But when looking at a cartoon, how do I tell what the focal length that the cartoon is drawn at, since it's a cartoon character? What I mean is, the amount of barrel distortion in the cartoon, so the live actor, can be captured at the same amount of distortion.

    It's a lot easier for me to tell focal lengths on human shapes, but in cartoon's, it's much more difficult for me. Does anyone have any advice on how to go about this?

    LOL
    Did you ever see barrel distortion in a cartoon?
    Just match the size of the cartoon to its surroundings.

    This why you fail: you think you are asking clever questions, but this is idiocy coming from a tendancy to micro manage every little detail without having oversight on priorities.
