Advances in technology and the increasing use of 3D in film mean compositing software has had to adapt quickly and effectively to meet ever increasing demands. The result is deep compositing, a technique which gives a perception of depth in addition to the usual color and opacity channels.
Why do you need to learn it? Because Deep images can be composited like regular images, but the depth component makes it easier to determine the layering order. Deep images have that information for themselves and need no user input. Edge artifacts are reduced as transparent pixels have more data to work with. It's a technique that's being adopted by studios around the world because of the high-quality results it produces.
And there is no better person to learn it from than Mariana Acuna. In her role at The Foundry, she trains studios all over North and South America in all aspects of compositing in Nuke, but particularly in deep.
If you're an intermediate Nuke users who wants to expand your skillset to include the new possibilities offered by deep compositing, this six week online CGWorkshop is for you. Mariana begins with a basic overview of deep compositing: movies where it's been used, applications which support deep data, it's pros and cons. Over the six week teaching period, she'll take you through techniques for creating, reading, rendering and comping deep images. Each week there's an assignment to complete, and you'll receive feedback both via the private classroom forum and live weekly webinars where you'll connect with Mariana and your classmates to review work and discuss issues (these are always recorded for those who can't make it.)
All images and shots will be provided, plus Mariana will give you a sneak-peek at Nuke 8 which comes out soon.
Don't miss this chance to learn from one of The Foundry's own training team.
