In this PFDepth tutorial, we'll take our first steps by learning how to transform your 2D footage into 3D. We'll dive into the basic tools that show you how to turn your footage from 2D to 3D and we'll also explore different methods to do so. We'll work with anaglyphic glasses and learn how to setup the provided shots properly. By the end of this PFDepth training, you'll be comfortable enough in the software to start tackling your own projects. Software required: PFDepth 2015.1.1.
Introduction and Project Overview Hello everyone. My name is Michael Raphaelovich. I'm a freelance visual effects artist and my specialty is visual effects match moving and compositing. My latest work include commercials, music videos, and other courses for Digital-Tutors. In this course we are going to take our first step in PFDepth. PFDepth is a unique software that is solely dedicated to convert 2D footage into 3D and you can also track footage in it. Since this software is from the Pixel Farm it shares some tracking tools that you might find in PFTrack. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to navigate in the software's unique interface, how to create different depth layers, how to use Stereo Render Node and why it is important to have a good pair of anaglyphic glasses and how to work with z-depth maps that were exported from Maya. PFDepth is a great software to use as a 3D conversion tool. 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.
