For each scene at least 2 images are rendered : a background (statics elements like the wall, landscape), a foreground (moving elements like the men, machine).

Summarized in two words, the next step is just an addition of two different layers using their alpha channel.
This time saving technique has been used up to 5 different times (levels) for
the most complex situation of compositing.

A + B = C
