New course: Geometry Tracking and Compositing in Nuke

Our new course, taught by Kirill Pleshakov, covers two shots requiring 3D tracking of tanks, utilizing KeenTools’ GeoTracker. The goal is to put CG hatches on the tanks, which had to be removed on production for safety reasons so that the drivers could see better while driving on set.

The course begins with an easy shot to lay the foundation for the second more complex shot. In addition to geotracking and layout with GeoTracker and PinTool, the course covers shading and compositing inside of Nuke, until the shots are fully completed. In addition, there will be additional layout and geotracking to clean up clean up items on set and fix visible fake parts left on set by the production team.
