Complete Training for Nuke 6 from Class on Demand is a comprehensive course in compositing visual effects with Nuke, the world leader in compositing. This course assumes that you know compositing and starts you at the beginning of the Nuke story to walk you through the user interface, how to do keyframe animation, color correction, motion tracking, multi-pass cgi composting, and bluescreen/greenscreen keying.
Once you have mastered 2D compositing the subject advances to 3D compositing, a Nuke specialty. Learn how to navigate the 3D interface, import 3D geometry from Maya or other 3D apps, then add texture maps, surface attributes and lights. Finally, there is a comprehensive exhibition of four classic 3D compositing workflows such as camera projection and pan-n-tile shots. Each chapter comes with all project media so you can follow along with the videos.
