Fusion - Digital Matte Painting [jh]There’s a lot of training out there on how to use software and techniques to get a job in the industry. But what about how to create your own effects that you would use inside your own movies? Welcome to the start of the Low-Budget VFX Series. In this first video, you’ll learn how to create professional matte paintings you can actually do yourself without spending massive amounts of time. Its a mindset that gets drilled in here called “get it done…”. You’ll learn how to use what you have available including 3D, Photoshop techniques, free image resources and more. You’ll also learn how to quickly break down photos, cut them up and build out a base, work in 3D elements and blend them seamlessly. Finally, you’ll see how to take that painting you just made and get it ready to take into your favorite compositing program. Over 4 hours of training. (includes video in WMV 720p and all project files)
Fusion VFX - 3D Matte Compositing [jh]We continue where we left off on our matte creation and take it inside Fusion where we turn it into a fully functioning shot. We’ll take the layers we created in Photoshop and split them up into 3D space and add in our camera. We’ll then add in cherry blossom sequences we rendered out in Lightwave and learn how to comp them in including defocus and vector motion blur. (Includes video in WMV 720p and all project files)
Eyeon Fusion 2D and 3D Particles [jh]Eyeon Fusion has one of the best particle systems out there. Both among compositing and 3D applications. Learn how to quickly harness its power in both 2D compositing as well as in a 3D environment. You’ll learn how to create particle effects similar to the music video Red – Ordinary World including creating particles from an image sequence, moving and shaping them and working around processing issues to get the job done as fast as possible. 3D particles in this video are a lot of fun. Not only will we be messing with particles in a 3D space but we’re also going to pull FBX objects right in from Lightwave, camera info and a textures. We’re then going to get that stuff generating particles AND interacting with them. Did I mention that’s all right inside Fusion? (Includes video in WMV 720p and all project files).
Fusion VFX - Shooting and Compositing Green Screen [jh]Low-Budget VFX Series: Shooting and Compositing Greenscreen We wrap up our first series with not just how to key and composite greenscreen in Fusion, but how to shoot it in our garage too! We cover how to setup your screen, properly light it and light your subject. We get into all the things you need to know to get started including noise, color temperature, contrast ratios and matching the shot with the matte. Inside Fusion we go over keying, rotoscoping and blending the footage into the shot to get some beautiful touches on our scene and bring it to life. (Includes video in WMV 720p and all project files).
