Fusion for LightWave Artists: Volume 4 - Curse of the Phantom Shadow
Fusion for LightWave Artists: Volume 4 - Curse of the Phantom Shadow Award winning VFX artist and CG Supervisor, Kelly "Kat" Myers is back in his latest installment in the Fusion for LightWave Artists series. This time Kat walks you through a real-world production shot from the low-budget 30+ minute short film written and directed by Mark Ross; "Curse of the Phantom Shadow" With over 396 VFX shots in the current edit of the film, the daunting challenge of completing the task at hand is met through the use of LightWave3D and Fusion! In this tutorial, Kat demonstrates how one can employ creative uses of volumetrics supplied by LightWave3D natively as well as via TurbulenceFD From Jawset.com and mix them together in Fusion 8 in a way that "sells the shot". It doesn't stop there, however! Kat also demonstrates where the use of LightWave's PRMB is essential vs. the use of Vector-Based motion blur in post, and what to do if you ever have to "mix and match" in a compositing program like Fusion. If you have enjoyed the previous installments of Fusion for LightWave artists, then you are for sure going to want to grab this title as you can follow along with Kat as he breaks down the composite that made up the final shot and continues on improving it! Kat also discusses how you can ensure that 'WYSIWYG' for input and output when working with LightWave's Linear Color Space workflow and how Fusion's LUTs should be used with sRGB rendered material. Exclusively available from Liberty3d.com, Fusion for LightWave Artists: Volume 4 - Curse of the Phantom Shadow, includes the entire render results used in the tutorial. You can practice the techniques demonstrated by Kat without having to render a single frame out of LightWave! He's done that for you and the renders are included as a secondary download aside from the tutorial video so you can watch right away as the downloads for the renders come across to you in the background if you choose!
Practical Production Techniques Vol. 10 - Project Smoke Monster [kat]
Practical Production Techniques Vol. 10 - Project Smoke Monster! Kat is back with another installment in the highly popular Practical Production Techniques series. In Volume 10, Kat walks you through an entire shot featuring a Daz3D character model, taking the asset from Daz3D into LightWave, surfacing it using the maps from the asset, setting it up with animation applied via MDD, transferring in TurbulenceFD settings from another scene, lighting the character using some nifty tricks for realism in a photographic plate and then compositing the rendered results in Fusion. With a runtime of almost 4.5 hours, this tutorial is jam-packed with lots of great tips and techniques pulled from Kat's experiences in production. The tutorial includes the rendered image files so you can follow along in the compositing process in Fusion or even AE and Nuke. You also get the scene files saved at every step along the way. Not included is the model which is a commercial asset but retails for 25 dollars on Daz3d.com and can be easily substituted for a character of your own design or any other Daz Character you may have laying about.

Fusion for LightWave Artists Part III [KAT]
In part III of Fusion for LightWave Artists, Kelly "Kat" Myers breaks new ground in the series as he walks you through a complete shot to recreate a news broadcast style "playback" element using the assets from Iron Sky. SyntheyesTrackingMany years ago, Kat worked for a company that specialized in this area of film and television effects production working with Fusion and LightWave to produce video playback that would be used on set. This tutorial goes from start to finish including the tracking in Syntheyes of a plate shot using an everyday smart phone (in this case a Samsung Galaxy Note4), prepping the resulting footage for efficient use in Layout while getting the Iron Sky Valkyrie UFOs into the shot. From there this project takes a bit of a different turn as Kat demonstrates how to track elements in 2D using Fusions precise tracking tools and how to attach masks to these tracks providing for additional control of your composite. LightWave3DISValksThe tutorial finishes off with the introduction of several effects tools that you can use to "fake" broadcast TV interference or replicate the appearance of conventional television footage. Learn how to deal with noisy "tracks" from a 3D tracking program by working with the data in Layout's graph editor while at the same time knowing what you can get away with due to the nature of the final target element. There are several tricks and tips in this tutorial that you simply will not find anywhere else covering an area of VFX creation that is rarely discussed if at all by visual effects artists. With an approximate run time of 3.7 hours, Fusion for LightWave Artists Part III is a great companion title to the previous two parts in the series. With 20 video segments and all of the content included for you to follow along, this title is a must have for LightWave artists working with Fusion in their production work flows no FusionTrackingTwomatter what the tasks you may face. Visual Effects artists are sometimes asked to do some pretty odd things and creating "playback" for on-set shooting use is one of these odd ball jobs you are going to come across.
