TUTORIALS

OpenEXR formats are extremely useful when they are utilized in the most effective way. In this week's tutorial, Sebastian Siggerud is back to show us how to use multi-channel OpenEXR passes in Nuke, while also teaching how to turn a 2D background into a 3D scene.

We wanted to show our Fusion (software) users a few tips and tricks to adding explosion stock footage in your scene. Our instructor lectures on best practices of making an asteroid smash into the ground and causing an explosion to occur.

We are going to use the same background plate and VFX clips from last weeks camera shake tutorial and dive into 5 steps to compositing our explosions and exploding debris stock footage in After Effects. These professional techniques will bring your VFX compositing game to the next level. And honestly, who doesn't want to improve on their editing skills?

Now that you VFX shot is tracked, has the most depth possible, and looks realistic, it's time to embrace your inner wiggle and add a camera shake effect. Adding camera shake provides so many different advantages that can translate in almost every project. One of those advantages being that it takes your shot to the next level and makes it believable.

We are getting away from After Effects this week and diving into Nuke, a node-based digital compositing application. Our instructor, Anthony Thomas, will take you through how to best utilize our Aerial Explosions into a shot he created specifically for this tutorial.
