What you’ll learn in Intro to 3D Rendering Live Action VFX
Lighting and Shading a CG Object to match a real scene Using HDRIs to light an object Creating water drips on the surface of CG Using camera projections in Maya Blending multiple camera projections Using Arnold Physical Shaders Using Arnold Shaders to capture shadows and reflections on real footage Creating emission lights Setting up render passes for Nuke Compositing Creating ID mattes for secondary grading Creating a “bash comp” in Nuke to test our renders Using Arnold nodes to adjust textures Dealing with real-world scene scaling Rendering AOVs in Arnold / Maya
RequirementsHave a basic understanding of Maya’s capabilities. Have just little understanding of Arnold Have just little understanding of Nuke Have a machine with a strong enough GPU and CPU, as well as adequate RAM, for usage with Maya and Arnold software. Make sure you have adequate hard disk space for the project file and a fast enough internet connection to download it (5gb)
Photorealistic CGI may be rendered into your recorded material! Participants in this Maya/Arnold training session will learn how to blend computer-generated imagery (CG) with live action video footage.
There are sections on camera tracking, rendering and integrating HDRIs, blending multiple projections in Maya, generating realistic materials in Maya, and finishing up with rendering the right passes out for Nuke compositing, among other topics.
What is the purpose of this course?
This course is aimed for those who wish to gain a deeper understanding of the process of converting computer
generated imagery (CG) into real life. Additionally, you are acquiring the necessary know-how and methods to be able to accomplish this, while also learning more advanced approaches that you may use to your own projects in the future. The lighting component is particularly crucial since it lays the groundwork for the CG compositing aspect, which follows after lighting and is highly necessary for a high-quality final image.
Your teacher has experience working on feature films such as the following: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is a film about the life of Anakin Skywalker. Avengers: Infinity War The X-Men: Apocalypse is a film directed by Bryan Singer. The Mandalorian is a fictional character created by author Robert Jordan.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) ….and a slew of others.
First and foremost, what information do I require prior to enrolling in this course?
An understanding of Maya and Arnold at a beginning level 3. A fundamental understanding of how the hypershade and materials operate in Arnold. 1. A working familiarity of Nuke and the Nuke interface at a basic level. [This is preferable, but it is not absolutely essential. The majority of the lesson is held within Maya.]
This course is intended for the following individuals: Aspiring computer graphics artists who wish to learn how to convert computer graphics into actual video
Lighting artists, computer graphics generalists, and compositors are all needed. Students or enthusiasts in the field of visual effects
