Complete Training for Nuke 6

Video Description

This course assumes you know compositing and begins with the Nuke story to walk you through the user interface, how to do keyframe animation, color correction, motion tracking, multi-pass cgi composting, and bluescreen/greenscreen keying. Once you have mastered 2D compositing the subject advances to 3D compositing, a Nuke specialty. Learn how to navigate the 3D interface, import 3D geometry from Maya or other 3D apps, then add texture maps, surface attributes and lights. Finally there is a comprehensive exhibition of four classic 3D compositing workflows such as camera projection and pan-n-tile shots. Each chapter comes with all project media so you can follow along with the videos.
