Compositing is a vital part of the process in creating visual effects (VFX) for movies, TV, and animated productions. The Compositor combines elements filmed during production with Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) created by other artists to blend them together seamlessly. Compositors also fix problems in the footage that occurred during filming, and find methods to enhance VFX shots to better match the director’s vision. All of the final pieces are assembled by Compositors, who can transform a shot into something spectacular that initially was not possible.
The Advanced Visual Effects Compositing Diplomas offered only at Campus VFX is specifically designed and continuously updated to provide students with a broad variety of real-world compositing tasks to sharpen and prove their skills on a demo reel.
These are the core concepts that will be covered in our Advanced VFX Compositing programs using Foundry’s Nuke Software. Our curriculum evolves and adapts to fit Industry needs.
