Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Melissa Best and welcome to my course, NUKE Green Screen Keying Building on the Fundamentals. I am a senior visual effects instructor at Vancouver Film School with over 15 years of production experience as a compositor. My most recent production role was a compositing supervisor for a feature film. This course builds upon the terminology and skills reviewed in Pluralsight's NUKE Green Screen Keying Fundamentals. Completion of the fundamentals course or already existing knowledge of keying in NUKE is suggested. Some of the major topics that we will cover include combining core and fringe mattes, keying in alternative color spaces, keying techniques and workflows for transparency, motion blur, and hair detail, despill and edge treatment, re-introducing lost details, and of course, keying templates for you to use both for production and your own personal projects. By the end of this course you'll know how to tackle challenging green screen keys and how to finesse them to take your shots through to a final composite. Before beginning this course you should be familiar with green screen keying fundamentals and basic operations inside of NUKE. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn green screen keying with the NUKE Green Screen Keying Building on the Fundamentals course at Pluralsight.
