Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name's Conrad Olson, and welcome to my course, Time Shifting and Retiming in Nuke. I'm a visual effects compositor and I've been working on feature films since 2008. Sometimes the timing of the footage that you have to work with just isn't quite right. Perhaps the main action point happens at the wrong moment. Maybe the action's too slow to be exciting or maybe slowing it down could add some drama. In this course we're going to learn how to use different techniques in Nuke to change the timing of your footage. This will allow you to get the action happening exactly at the moment you want to tell your story or just to create some cool and dramatic effects. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include shifting your footage in time without changing the speed of it, matching your footage to changes made by the editor, speeding the footage up and creating a motion blur effect, slowing your footage down to create a slow motion effect, and cleaning up the results to get a pixel perfect image. By the end of this course you'll know how to use Nuke's retiming tools to make sure your action happens exactly when you want it to. Before beginning the course you should be familiar with the basics of Nuke. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn retiming with the Time Shifting and Retiming in Nuke course at Pluralsight.
