Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Michael Raphaelovich. I am a Matchmover Supervisor and a Compositing Lead at Cinema 1 Film & FX. My latest projects include commercials, music videos and various clients from various industries. In this course, we are going to jump deeper into matchmoving processes and we are going to learn how to use advanced methods in matchmoving and various software for matchmoving. Some of the major topics that we will be discussing in this course will include image modeling, advanced object tracking, how to deal with lens distortions and shadow-street problems. By the end of the training, you will be able to use your new set of skills to help your fellow artists and your own projects with complex matchmoving processes. I'm excited to show you these valuable tricks and techniques with fellow artists. So let's get started with the first lesson.
