English | VP6F 782x646 | MP3 96 kbps | 875 MB
In this series of lessons we'll learn how to turn a 2d image into a 3d scene using camera projection in Maya and Nuke. By using a reference photo inside Maya and using Nuke's powerful compositing tools and 3d environment, we'll be able to create realistic scenes quickly and easily.
We'll begin this project by learning about the theories behind camera projection what makes a good image to project. We'll then set-up our camera in Maya for match moving and look at a technique to get our camera in the correct position. We'll then model the our buildings and animate a new camera. Then we'll export our Maya data and bring it in to Nuke's 3D toolset and set-up our projections. We'll finish the scene in Nuke by creating a sky dome and using it's 2d tools to create appealing effects. Finally, we'll use Maya's mental ray renderer to create realistic reflections and composite them on top of our Nuke projections to create our final composite.
Digital Tutors - Integrating Titles with Footage in After Effects
English | VP6F 782x646 | MP3 96 kbps | 375 MB
In this series of lessons we'll learn how to composite a text title into background footage. This is a common task for show openers or to add extra information into your shot.
We'll begin this project by importing our background plate and creating the text we'll integrate. Then we'll track the background plate and attach our text to the track. We'll then learn about the uses of pre-composing and how to combine various effects to make our text look more three dimensional. We'll then learn how to take elements from our background and layer them into our text to create the illusion that the text is in the scene. We'll finish by doing a quick color correction and render out our finished shot!
