Description

In this series of tutorials we'll learn how to use tracker and roto nodes in NUKE to quickly create a solid matte. By using each node for their specific strength, we'll be able to achieve production-quality results much faster than using just hand keying. We'll begin this project by learning the basics of using trackers to speed up the rotoscoping process by removing camera jitter, translation, rotation, and scaling. We'll then dive into our main project where we will use a combination of trackers, roto nodes, and animation to create a clean mask for our foreground actor's face and hand. We'll learn many techniques to speed up our rotoscoping workflow and how we can use animation principles to create solid movement. Software required: NUKE 6.3v6.

Introduction and Project Overview
[Autogenerated] Hello. I'm Chris with digital tutors in this series of lessons will learn how to use tracker and rodeo notes in new too quickly. Create a solid metal by using each note for their specific strength. Will be able to achieve production quality results much faster than using just hand. King will begin this project by learning the basics of using trackers to speed up the roto scoping process by removing camera Jenner Translation rotation and scaling well, Then dive into our main project, where we will use a combination of trackers rodeo notes in animation to create a clean mask for our foreground actors face and hands. We'll learn many techniques to speed up our roto scoping workflow and how we can use animation principles to create solid movement. This series of lessons will illustrate an example of how we can combine the different masking and tracking tools together to complete our Rhoda work much faster and with a much higher degree of accuracy. So with that, let's go ahead and get started
