New course: Background Fundamentals 2020

Background is back! We’re incredibly pleased to have a new Background Fundamentals course on offer, which seeks to provide you with information and insights on a wide range of topics. Unlike other courses, the classes are mostly stand-alone.

In this course, we look at three primary topics over five videos: on-set LED virtual production, AI machine learning and digital humans, both traditional CGI and neural rendering. This course is aimed at artists and working VFX professionals so there is little maths, but a lot of helpful advice and lessons gleaned from experience.

Taught by Dr. Mike Seymour, this course builds on one of the more popular series of courses that dates back to the inception of fxphd. As always, Mike has been fortunate to be assisted in creating these classes by some of the world’s best teams and experts.
