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.
