In this DVD, Instructor Matt Skonicki takes you through the full “gamut” of compositing a CG monster into a live action scene using Maya and NUKEX. Matt starts off talking about color management and giving an overview of what will be covered. He then goes into NUKEX and talks about its color space, interface, and other things needed to know before using it. Matt goes on to talk about lens distortion and then goes into tracking 5 different shot scenarios using the camera tracker in NUKEX. He then takes the solve into Maya, sets everything up, and then talks a bit about the monsters rig, materials, and animation. Matt then introduces Vray and talks about rendering with Vray and Vray RT, and setting up basic IBL. After the lighting is done he goes into rendering with render layers and then brings the layeres into NUKEX to composite. Inside NUKEX he adds a lens flare, chromatic aberration, granularity, roto masks, tracking, tweaks, and finalizing the piece.
