New course: Introduction to Flame, Part 1

Flame has the reputation of a mystery box. While widely used in the realm of commercials and advertising for everything from editing, vfx, grading to finishing, it has the perception to have a steep learning curve.

Taught by Christoph Zapletal, this course aims to demystify Flame and provide a solid foundation in all the different areas in which Flame can be used. Starting with media management and editing, you’ll quickly dive into the rabbit hole of node-based compositing, utilizing many tools unique to Flame.

With a balance between technical background and hands-on work, this course will introduce you to tools inside of flame that can seem overwhelming at first, but by taking it step by step you will soon be able to master this great tool. Flame for Mac OS is available on the fxphd VPN so you can follow along with the course.
