Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – как ставят свет настоящие композеры
Victor Perez. NUKE™ guru
Вашему вниманию предлагается уникальная возможность подсмотреть, как же на самом деле работают взрослые композеры на взрослых проектах. И это не будет рассказ о проекте в целом, это будет детальный мастеркласс о том, как происходит работа с конкретными шотами из Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, а еще точнее, как происходит работа со светом в сложном композитинге на примере конкретных сцен в программе NUKE.
Это будет также полезно всем, кто работает со светом в любых инструментах и занимается композицией, освещением и работой с камерами.
Все кто замотивирован, читаем дальше оригинал.
Compositing Macro Structures: A Rouge One Case Study
Synthesising Complex Light Physics at a Large Scale into Simple Nuke Script Structures
The art of compositing consists in merging two or more images making them look like they have been shot at the same time with the same camera and lenses, under the same lighting conditions. Applying the physics of light in a photorealistic environment could not always be synthesised in simple formulas or fixed structures due to the complexity of the light phenomena but understanding the journey a ray of light has taken from its source to get to your screen could lead to a more scientific analysis of the image merge process to replicate and emulate the qualities and artefacts of light. In order to log the events in the lifetime of a specific ray of light Victor Perez proposes a Mind Mapping Analysis Structure to translate the physics of light into mathematical operations within Foundry® NUKE’s nodal-based compositor. An articulated system of observation to guide compositing artists in the fantastic odyssey into the invisible.
During his Master Class Victor will showcase a few of his latest compositing works, including Academy Award nominated Rouge One: A Star Wars Story to illustrate the concepts of compositing macro structures, and applying this excellence to any image, with any scale, at any budget level.
