Advanced TurbulenceFD Concepts and Projects: Propulsion [KAT]
In this video Kat shows you how to create two separate types of propulsion effects using TurbulenceFD for LightWave3D. First up, a PAC-3 Missile launcher effect is produced using a freely available model (included) of a Patriot missile battery system. Second, an afterburner effect similar to that which you would see on an F-18 combat fighter jet. Kat takes it further though by showing you how to convert TurbulenceFD's native BCF cache data file to OpenVDB so they can be used with LightWave2018's OpenVDB volume object primitive and rendering system or for use with external rendering solutions such as Octane. With the first project having a run time of almost 120 minutes and the second at approximately 45 minutes this tutorial is jammed packed with useful information for TurbulenceFD users looking to create effects beyond simple smoke or fire while remaining a "get in, get it done and get out" educational experience. Complete project files and work ups are included so you can follow along.

Fusion for LightWave Artists Vol. 5 - Curse of the Phantom Shadow [KAT]
In Fusion for LightWave Artists Vol. 5 - "Curse of the Phantom Shadow", Kelly "Kat" Myers takes you through a CG+Live action footage mixed VFX shot from the short film by Mark Ross. This tutorial is rather advanced but even first time users of Fusion can benefit from this title and the massive amount of information that Kat passes onto you while he builds out the composite in Black Magic Designs Fusion 9.02 Every LightWave artist needs to learn how to composite CG footage into a live action shot and this title is a perfect way to get into doing exactly that. But more importantly, is learning how to deal with footage that is not of the best quality, as Curse of the Phantom Shadow was shot on a first generation Panasonic Lumix GH1 Camera at 720p in 4:2:0 MPEG format on a shoe-string budget in Mark Ross' living room. This is where Rotoscoping comes in and some creative problem solving is needed. Rotoscoping is an essential skill all compositors must have in their tool belt and Kat shows you how to work with Rotosplines for masking of shot video as well as still photographic elements and where and how to make use of them correctly in matte control and keying tools. Corner positioner and lens distortion tools are also discussed as they are used in the comp in rather creative ways to compensate for the way the material was shot in order to get it to "line up" with the CG rendered portion produced in LightWave3D. On the CG elements side of the comp workflow demonstrated in full in this video title, Kat shows you how to take a single render pass from LightWave3D rendered with several basic buffers (provided through exrTrader although LW's native solution works just fine) into Fusion and create bitmap masks for use on Surface/ObjectID tagged portions of the rendered image sequence to isolate them for further independent adjustment. STOP TRYING TO GET EVERYTHING PERFECT IN CAMERA! Do it in comp! Save time by making use of LightWave's render buffer technology and Fusion's ultra-powerful compositing engine, leveraging them both to your advantage and making you a better VFX artist as a result. In this tutorial with an approximate runtime of 165 minutes, Kat takes the shot from "Zero to Hero" and you can follow along every step of the way. Provided as an optional download of just over 4GB of bonus content, the rendered image sequence, live-action blue screen footage and photographic elements as well as the Fusion Flow Comp files used to create the final shot are included. As an extra bonus, for those of you with After Effects and Optical Flares from Video Co-pilot is also provided. This is for a small final element requested by the director to finish off the shot.
TFD Advanced Concepts and Projects: Engine Fire [KAT]
Kat is back with a new installment in the TurbulenceFD Advanced Concepts and Projects Series. This time in “Project Engine Fire”, Kat shows you what goes into setting up a WWII era USAF B-25 with an engine fire effect. This is a real-world shot from the upcoming feature-film (direct-to-video) “Behind the Lines” which is currently in post-production. With a run time of approximately 105 minutes, you get all the info you need to recreate such an effect using LightWave3D (works in 2015.x and 2018.x) and TurbulenceFD from You also get the renders and the Fusion composite flows from Kat for this project so you can play with the render results instead of having to render out things on your own (which can take a wee bit of time). Don’t worry though, if you want to play around with things in LightWave3D and tweak settings and sim things for yourself, we have you covered there, too. The basic geometry and the scene files are included so you have everything you need to follow along and get the exact results you want using the provided materials as a guide! You get almost 4GB of content and learning material, ready to go for just $24.95USD

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 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, 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!

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.
