In this series of lessons, we'll learn how to get started using the compositing software Toxik. Using Toxik we can quickly color correct, mask, composite or animate still images and image sequences. We'll begin this project by learning the basic composition creation process, learning how to move around the Toxik user interface, begin compositing images together and render out our finished material. We'll then move into the common uses of Toxik such as Color Correction, Garbage Masks, blending Modes, and Animation. Toxik 2010 introduces some workflow changes that make it easier and quicker to use. We'll also learn about the Tool Options panel and how to use Presets inside of Toxik. Software required: Toxik 2010 and up.
