What is Compositing?
What is 2D? What do compositors do? Compositing has been around for over a hundred years and predates computers in filmmaking. In this webinar, our Senior VFX tutor, Allar Kaasik, will introduce the wonderful world of compositing and you will learn the basic principles behind compositing and how the modern VFX industry cannot exist without 2D departments.
Compositing in TV
Our compositing tutors, Sokratis Synitos and Klaudija Cermak, tell us about their experiences of creating high-end Visual Effects for TV. VFX is no longer the playground of just Hollywood films, as streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime require quality VFX done at scale. Hear from our industry veteran tutors on how the work on TV differs from film and what makes it exciting!
2D relighting hacks
In this specialist webinar our Senior VFX Tutor, Allar Kaasik, will demonstrate how to add extra realism to compositing shots by improving lighting in 2D. You will learn the principles of how lighting and shading are calculated in 3D and how we could use some of those techniques when working with only 2D footage.
