Continuing our “Tips and Tricks for Nuke” series, Hugo Léveillé builds upon the two previous courses (Part 1 and Part 2), showing useful production tricks that you can apply in your scripts. These tips are as short as 5 minutes to some over 45 minutes and are aimed to help you in your everyday compositing. Check out this and all of our other offerings on our course listing page.
Hugo Léveillé is currently head of compositing at Mels studios in Montreal. With over 10 years of VFX experiences, he also shares his work time by creating and integrating pipeline tools for Nuke.
