This lecture is hosted by Lighting & Compositing Supervisor Aaron Estrada, and takes us into the powerful Nuke Compositing tool from The Foundry. This workshop is ideal for those new to Compositing and Nuke specifically, but are eager to ramp up FAST! Aaron take us through the main components of Nuke’s user interface, and how to work most effectively with this incredibly deep toolset. After touring the UI, Aaron focuses on one of Nuke’s core strengths: Color. The foundation of Nuke’s architecture is build on Linear Color and we’ll tackle this challenging concept head on, looking at what the Linear color workflow really means to us in practical terms, and then how best to take advantage of it in our own work. Aaron will cover the essential comp tools within Nuke, focusing on the Merge node, where much of the action happens! To wrap things up, we review the concept behind Premultiplication and why it’s so important in our comping process.
