In this introductory DVD, seasoned compositor Gary Jackemuk teaches the fundamentals of compositing with an emphasis on production. Gary starts by creating a sample composite, discussing the essentials of digital formats and color space. From there, Gary illustrates the process of using mattes generated by both 3D applications and live-action plates. He discusses the details of combining and layering by looking at the mathematics behind the most frequently used operators. The DVD covers color operations, filters, transformations and various methods of generating mattes. By walking you through a few composites, Gary shows you how these techniques are applied to actual visual effects production tasks. Although Gary uses Shake to demonstrate these compositing fundamentals, the techniques are applicable to any compositing package, including Digital Fusion, Flame/Inferno and After Effects.
