These exercises are designed to teach the essential elements of Autodesk’s powerful family of compositing and effects products including Autodesk® Flame®, Autodesk® Flint® and Autodesk® Flare® software.
For simplicity, all modules refer to Autodesk® Flame® but will apply to all products except where noted.
The Flame Essentials contains exercises, followed by interface overviews.
*Follow the exercises to get practical experience using the software.
Footage for the exercises is provided at the beginning of each exercise as a Flame archive file.
* Watch the overviews to learn more about the Flame user interface and functionalities.
These overviews are meant to walk you through the interface and therefore no footage is provided.

• Start a project and restore a Flame archive.
• Build effects using Batch procedural environment.
• Composite a scene using techniques including color correction, keying, text, tracking and masks.
• Create complex composites and animations within the 3D environment of the Action module.
