    Nuke Advanced Relighting and Retexturing

    Nowadays basic lighting knowledge is a must-know for compositors, and performing CGI relighting is becoming a common task in the most exigent artistic environments. After the success of the Nuke Color Master Class, Victor Perez has returned to cmiVFX designing this course to demystify the complex process of CGI relighting in the Nuke compositing pipeline. This course contains a set of advanced techniques that will provide the knowledge and skills necessary to create film-production-level results by applying light effects to CG images in combination with live action elements. Victor will be covering everything from the fundamentals of AOV, to the lighting department, to the practical use of all the tools available in Nuke to setup an articulated script to capture the dynamics of lights, and more. This course includes all the footage necessary for following the exercises. A full animated CGI sequence with Beauty Pass, Ambient Occlusion, Normals, Positions, Camera, and many other features. The scripts Victor used for the explanations of the course are also included. Unleash the power of NukeX 7 with this complete course and improve your compositing skills to get the finest results and make a difference with the quality of your work.
