In this NUKE course, we'll look at how we composited all of the rendered passes from the CG shots together with a few live action shots. The goal of this fast-paced tutorial is to give you insight into how we solved problems on the fly and resolved those messy fix it in post types of issues. We're not going to go step-by-step through the compositing of all these assets but instead, we'll take a high level overview of the overall process to learn the key techniques and workflows that were involved to create the finished composite. Since this isn't going to be step-by-step, we'd recommend you have good knowledge of NUKE as well as the compositing process. By the end of this NUKE training, you'll have an understanding of how the compositing process was done for this project. Software Required: NUKEX 9.0.

Introduction and Project Overview Hi, I'm Laura and I'll be your guide in this series of tutorials. In this specific course, we're going to look at we use Nuke to composite all of the rendered passes, and a few live action shots, that this entire production pipeline has been building up to. The goal of this fast-paced course is to give you insight into how we solve problems on the fly and resolve those messy fix it in post types of issues. There's no time to re-render and that's where we, compositors, start working our magic. Now, we're not going to go step-by-step through the compositing of all of these assets, but instead take a high-level overview of all the overall comp process and the key techniques and workflows, that were involved to create the finished composite. Since this is not going to go step-by-step, I recommend that you have a good knowledge of Nuke, as well as the compositing process. So, it may be beneficial to first check out the quick start to Nuke, if you're just beginning. I can't wait to show you this amazing project, so let's jump in and talk about the overview of the whole node tree, and how it's broken down into organized bitesize chunks.
