What is Nuke compositing in VFX?:
At ZICA Animation Borivali, Mumbai, students delve into advanced compositing techniques using Nuke. Compositing, the amalgamation of two or more images to form a single cohesive picture, is a cornerstone of visual storytelling. It occurs either on-set, within the camera, or during post-production. A quintessential example is weather forecasting, where a weatherman stands before a green screen, overlaid with weather details. Popular compositing methods include CGI integration, matting for seamless layering, multiple exposure for dynamic visuals, and blue or green screen technology for versatile background replacement. Additionally, physical compositing and front or rear projection techniques enrich the toolkit for creating captivating visual narratives.Enquire Now !
