Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Phillip Maddock. I am 3D journalist at The Mill, London. And for most of my career, I've worked mainly in the film industry, both in London and in Mumbai, India. However, I mainly work now on TV commercials, and training other artistes. In this course, we're going to dive into some of the more advanced features of 3DEqualizer, which you may not have used before. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course, include learning how to use reference images working with your own 3DEqualizer, importing and exporting between minor and 3DEqualizer, working with lance distortion and quality control of your camera tracks. By the end of this training, you'll have learnt how to build an accurate scene in 3DEquailzer, along with learning lots of useful skills which will help you match with even your own projects. I'm excited to work with Digital-Tutors, and share these techniques with you. So let's get started with the first lesson.
