Upgrade your Nuke Skills

Have been using Nuke for a while but don't know how to make those Composites look amazing?

This course will help you polish up your skills and become a better Compositor in just six weeks.


What You will Learn

The goal of Compositing Bootcamp is to push your skills in each area and build a very strong foundation.


Compositing is art of combining all the visual elements into a single image. We will cover all the basic subjects that are required to create a strong composite.


Rotoscoping is the creation of mattes for elements on a live-action plate, preparing it to be composited over another background.


Rotopaint is the process to remove unwanted artifacts and reconstruct the background. It is also used to digitally correct a render or composite and do beauty fixes on the actors.


Greenscreens (or bluescreens) are used to insert background elements into a live action shot. You can put the actors in an entirely different world by just extracting them from a scene using different keying techniques.

Camera Tracking

Camera tracking, or match moving, is a technique that allows the insertion of computer graphics into live-action footage with correct position, scale, orientation, and motion relative to the photographed objects in the shot.

CG Integration

Whether its Giant Robots or Massive Sea Monsters, Compositing is required to put these 3D elements into real-world footage to make them believable.
