For all things Autodesk Smoke and The Smoke Learning Channel
Inspired by a crazy idea, I decided to create a 6 part video series on creating a simulated optical scope. We all need to make a scope at least once but this series covers a lot of areas such as masking, tracking, animation, compositing and stylisation. Great effect at the end and pick up some cool tips along the way
A must know for anyone involved in VFX - Dealing with Lens Distortion. Learn how to remove lens distortion with a great technique and re-add the distortion back into your footage after you have finished compositing.
Two new videos added to the paint training collection! Learn to paint on panning shot using either the Paint Tool or ConnectFX Paint. Downloadable media included!

Topics include render pass compositing, colour space management, compositing in Scene Linear Colour space, compositing techniques, using extra 3D data like motion vectors for motion blur and much more!!!
