Description

In this series of tutorials we are going to composite a stylized post-apocalyptic environment shot. We will set up an environment scene in NUKE's 3D space with our matte painting asset. To bring it to life, we will add footage and elements to our shot and also create atmospherics with NUKE's particle system. We will venture briefly into After Effects to use the Optical Flares plug-in to create lens flare elements. We will also look at camera effects like bloom, lens distortion, vignette, and chromatic aberration. Finally, we will go over some tips for finishing off your shot. The main purpose of this tutorial will be to discuss and show some basic compositing workflows, but also to look at some specific tips and techniques to help you take an environment or set extension shot from start to finish. Software required: NUKEX 7.0 V6, After Effects CS5, Optical Flares Plug-In.
