Course Overview

Award-winning VFX professional Allan McKay returns to CGWorkshops with his advanced 8 week, fully mentored online training course in FumeFX.

If you've already had some experience blowing stuff up, this workshop is for you. But if you haven't used FumeFX before, don't worry. In Week one, Allan explains the basics of the program for you before starting out with the creation of some seriously killer fire.  Moving through the weeks you will learn about smoke, massive clouds and weather, fluids, ink droplets (yes, you read right, ink is huge right now) compositing in Nuke and rendering.

But it doesn't end there. In Weeks seven and eight Allan puts you though his "Nuclear Blast" program, where you'll take everything you've learned and put it into an actual production shot. Allan describes this as a "realistic large scale nuclear explosion going off in the desert causing maximum destruction!"

As well as great weekly video tutroials, and a friendly forum classroom environment, Allan will run regular weekly live web feedback sessions where you will be personally mentored (recorded for those who can't make it.)

A time-limited, fully-funtional student Fume FX licensee will be available for students who take this workshop.

"Allan you are a great mentor, very available and supportive. You provided exactly what I needed to get going in FumeFX and continue on. I'm feeling now more professional with FumeFX. A lot of technics and tips with maxscript help me in company where I'm working." - Adrien Rollet, student, March 2014.
