In this tutorial, we will cover how to create a live-action shot with 3D elements. We will learn video shooting techniques; how to add 3D objects into live footage; animation, lighting, and rendering for the project in Maya; and compositing in NUKE. First, we will start with important settings of the DSLR Camera, and then we will take our footage to Maya, where we will add 3D elements into our footage. After that, we'll animate lighting and rendering in passes. We will then take these 3D passes in NUKE and start compositing. In compositing, we will learn how to use 3D passes to get realistic effects. Finally, we'll cover rotoscoping, masking, and color correction in NUKE. Software required: Maya 2013, NUKE.
Introduction and Project Overview Hi, my name is Rajiv Sharma. I am the effects technical director at HQVFX. I've worked in production for six years doing the video effects for feature films, TV shows, and commercials. I've worked on many features films. Some of these are Resident Evil: Afterlife, Happy Feet 2, The Three Musketeers and Lego movies. In this course we will learn something video shooting techniques, how to add CG objects, plate plates in Maya, and composting of 3D render with live action plate in NUKE. First, we will start with Canon DSLR video functions and also look at EOS utility software Then we will jump into Maya and start working on 3D animation, lighting, rendering, of CG card. And finally, we will composite all 3D render passes in NUKE. So with that, let's go ahead and get started.
