In this DVD, instructor Matt Skonicki explores plate enhancement and set extension. He starts off by going over the raw workflow with footage captures from the new Blackmagic Cinema Camera. From there he tracks the footage in Nuke and then begins rotoscoping for sky replacement using the new Nuke Planar Tracker Node. Next, he moves into 3D Projecting and does some cosmetic work on the plate by adding multiple glowing and flickering neon signs. He then finishes off the composition with Nuke’s powerful 3D scanline render engine, lighting geometry in the scene using many of Nuke’s 3D environment tools including point lights, environment lights, materials, and shaders.
This DVD is an essential master class for those looking to work in the commercial and visual effects industry, creating subtle and convincing extension work to any live action scene.
