Description

In this volume, we'll build on the concepts covered in Volume 1. We'll start by bringing our images into NUKE, setting the project settings and moving images around within the main shot. We'll learn how to track areas of the main shot so that we have data to integrate images into the composite. We'll learn how to add elements like fire and an explosion as well as heat distortion and lens effects. We also build upon the color correction techniques that we learned in Volume 1 to take our Volume 2 project to the next level. We'll finish up this training by learning how to get our sequence out of NUKE. Software required: NUKE 8.0v1.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hello, I'm Laura with Digital-Tutors, and I'd like to welcome you to Volume 2 of the Quick Start to NUKE, a series of specially constructed courses meant to be followed in sequence and interspersed with valuable exercises to reinforce learned concepts. In this volume, we'll build on the concepts learned in Volume 1. We'll start by talking about bringing our images into NUKE, setting the project settings, and moving images around within the main shot. We learned how to track areas of the main shot so that we have data to integrate images into the composite. We'll learn how to add elements like fire and an explosion, as well as heat distortion and lens effects. We also build upon the color correction techniques that we learned in Volume 1 to take our Volume 2 project to the next level. We'll finish by learning how to get our sequence out of NUKE. These courses are designed to be taken in sequence, so we really encourage you to start with Volume 1 before continuing with this section. We also encourage you to take advantage of the assignments that follow each volume. These assignments will allow you to take what you've learned and apply those tools and techniques to your own projects. So with that, let's begin.
