Introduction and Project Overview
Hello everyone, my name is Michael Raphaelovich. I'm a freelance visual effects artist, and my specialty is visual effects matchmoving and compositing. My latest work includes commercials, music videos, and other courses for Digital-Tutors. In this course we're going to dive deep into PFDepth. With a combined workflow between PFTrack and PFDepth, we will be able to track footage, bring the data into PFDepth, and then work on separating the layers that will eventually help us with setting up the proper Z-Depth maps. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to deal with footage in PFTrack, bringing the track information to PFDepth, how to separate clean and deal with the Z-Depth layers, and how to work with the stereo render and stereo tools. Before we get started, Digital-Tutors would like to thank Dissolve and the contributor Pro Baxter for their video that was used in this series of lessons. You can access this video and thousands of others at Dissolve. com. I'm excited to work with Digital-Tutors, and share these new techniques and features with you. So let's get started with the first lesson.
