Introduction and Project Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Sean Amlaner. I am a senior digital compositor with experience in both 2D and 3D stereo compositing. My more recent work has been included Get Hard, Maleficent, and a number of other feature films. In this course we're going to learn how to create and composite a live action matte painting scene. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to extract live action elements using both rotoscoping and keen techniques, extract sections of digital images within Photoshop for a matte painting, integrate edges and color-correct elements in Photoshop and Nuke, and finally create a final shot composite as well as output using Nuke. By the end of the training, you'll have learned how to create a matte painting and composite it into a live action scene. I'm excited to work with Digital Tutors and share these techniques with you, so let's get started with the first lesson.
