Description

In today's current versions of compositing software, you'll find a decent set of stereo-based toolsets that allow the compositor to perform both 2D and 3D-based compositing roles. Understanding how to not only utilize the tools out-of-the-box, but also to create simple stereo-based toolsets within Nuke will allow the compositor to fully immerse themselves in what stereo truly means for stereo-based compositing. In this course, Nuke Stereoscopic Compositing and Conversion, you'll learn how to create and remove stereoscopic imagery within a shot. First, you'll dive into the ins and outs of Stereoscopic 3D, its workflow, how it relates to human vision, and additionally key stereo-related phrases. Next, you'll learn how to build a simple stereo convergence tool, along with a more complex stereo conversion tool. Finally, you'll explore testing how to make changes to pre-existing stereoscopic imagery utilizing two different methods. By the end of this course, you'll have the necessary knowledge to survive within a stereo-based compositing pipeline. Software required: NUKE 10.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Sean Amlaner, and welcome to my course, NUKE Stereoscopic Compositing and Conversion. I am a senior compositor and senior artist instructor working in the post-production visual effects side of the film industry. In this course, we are going to learn how to create and remove stereoscopic imagery within a shot. Some of the major topics that we will cover include discussing stereoscopic 3D and how it relates to human vision, along with how to set up an overall basic stereo workflow within Nuke, talking about key stereo-related phrases, such as convergence, depth maps, offset, interocular separation, and interaxial separation, build a simple stereo convergence tool, as well as a more complex stereo conversion tool, test how to make changes to pre-existing stereoscopic imagery using two different methods. By the end of this course, you'll know how to survive within a stereo-based compositing pipeline. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the basics of compositing, as well as a firm understanding of how a 2D Nuke-based workflow should function. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn stereoscopic compositing with the NUKE Stereoscopic Compositing and Conversion course, at Pluralsight.
