Ludovic Iochem returns for a new course to keep sharing digital matte painting and environment tips and techniques on a bigger project, from the matchmove, to the compositing of the CG Environment. In this new course, we'll push the technique to the 2.5D Environment and will learn how to create a CG Environment, from a Matchmove Camera, to the 2.5D Script in Nuke, through the layout in Maya and DMP in Photoshop. This is the third part in our series on digital matte painting by Iochem.
