Throughout these lessons, we'll delve into the non-destructive paint workflow examples inside of NUKE. A non-destructive workflow allows each artist to keep all work inside of NUKE. It also speeds up last minute plate changes or revisions to the plate without painting fixes on top of fixes. So in this course, we cover a few examples of destructive paint workflows and more favorable ways to optimize shots. In turn, these techniques will strengthen your paint skills and your eye for detail. Software required: NUKE 8.0.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Melissa Best. I'm a compositing supervisor at Generate, and also a visual effects industry mentor at Vancouver Film School. My latest projects include Insurgent, Jupiter Ascending, Maleficent, and Godzilla. In this course, we're going to learn advanced clean plate techniques in a nondestructive workflow. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course will include learning how to complete clean plates and clean plate fixes solely inside of the NUKE environment, completing clean plates in a nondestructive workflow, clean plate techniques to match lighting and focus changes, compiling multiple clean plate techniques, and tricks and techniques that you can apply to your own shots. By the end of training, you'll be able to complete advance clean plate techniques while retaining as much native plate information as possible. I'm excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these techniques with you, so sign in, or sign up, and let's get started.
