More from the author

Hey guys, my name is Alexander Eriksson , welcome to my course on, Digital Makeup in NUKE.

I am a VFX Compositor, and I have worked for many major studios around the world such asIndustrial Light & Magic, MPC, Framestore, Double Negative and The Mill.

All of the work I do in movies require the highest degree of photo realism. Often to a degree of what is even beyond the real, such as making actors complexions look picture perfect every time.

In this course I will introduce you to some techniques that I personally use to retouch skin and other types of beauty work, such as that seen in fashion commercials and Hollywood features.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  • 2D tracking and working with camera grain
  • Retouching imperfections and other problem areas
  • Smoothing out wrinkles and skin textures
  • Covering Effective ways of integrating foreground and background images
By the end of the course, you’ll know how to easily remove skin imperfections, smooth wrinkles and even know how to apply image elements such as scars and tattoos onto the skin with a realistic result

But before you move on, make sure you have a basic understanding of compositing in Nuke since we will be going through some more advanced topics in this course.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn retouching with the Digital Makeup in NUKE course, at Pluralsight.
