Course Overview

This is part two of the overall Nuke Compositing Workshop for those artists that want to go beyond 2D compositing and advance to 3D compositing. This online vfx training workshop dives into Nuke’s awesome 3D compositing capability and covers the several major new features introduced in Nuke 6.3.

Of course this workshop will thoroughly cover the basics like creating 3D geometric primitives, adding lights, cameras and shaders, plus texture mapping and animating geometry. The workshop then pulls it all together with several examples of classic 3D compositing workflow techniques, including the all-important camera projection.

Finally, the huge new features that were released with Nuke 6.3 will be covered. This list is long, but just a few of the highlights would be a new displacement shader that creates adaptive geometry at render time, Deep Compositing, a built-in planar tracker, and a full blown fully integrated 3D particle system. This is can’t-miss training for Nuke artists.
