Smoke 2013 Ext 1 Demos based on the short film named Fit It In Post created by Jeremy Hunt.
This is a video tutorial for Smoke 2013 Ext 1 focusing on one shot from a short film named "Fit It In Post" created by Jeremy Hunt. In this shot a man is walking through an alley when a giant 3D text object appears in front of him and he collides with the floating text. Some of the workflows and tools covered are 3D composting, keying, masking, tracking, 3D text, lighting, shadows and painting. The total running time is 1 hour and 45 minutes. I hope you find it helpful. I you want to view the full film Fix It In Post I have included the video at the bottom of the tutorial videos.
Rob O'Neill and Nicky Liddell will show how the powerful creative tool set of Autodesk Smoke 2013 was used to finish budget-conscious retail commercials for Opel and Bayer.
This is a video tutorial focusing on short cuts and hot keys used while creating a rough cut and creative edit in Smoke 2013. Using menus and buttons to perform edits, trims, etc works but I feel it is a slow workflow and decreases your creative flow while you are trying to tell your story with your creative edit. Knowing the short cuts and performing dynamic edits will make you a more efficient editor. I also discuss workflow and tips about Smoke 2013 and it’s UI. The entire duration of the tutorial is about 1 1/2 hours but I have broken the tutorial into 12 videos with the longest video being 13 minutes. I recommend watching all of them in a row if possible and then later revisiting them as needed. Just for reference I was using Smoke 2013 Pre-Release 5 during the capturing of this tutorial. I hope you enjoy them and learn from them. Ken LaRue
IBC 2012 was a great success for Autodesk and Smoke 2013 was a big hit at the convention and at the SuperMeet Sunday Night. Plus I have a challenge for you. If you want to learn how to use Smoke to pull a great key even from some really bad green screen footage here is a way to do just that and have fun! Check out the Scruffy Smoke challenge.
