I have some exciting news!!
The blog is now CompositingMentor.com
A new name accompanied with some new tutorials to christen the site.
It’s been a few months, I’ve been working hard both at work and on side projects, one of which is the daunting task of categorizing and analyzing all of the gizmos and tools on Nukepedia.com. I came up with a good workflow to check the tools, and I am going 1 category at a time, but it is pretty time consuming.
I’ve also been working on an Advanced Keying Breakdown, which I will be posting for the next month or so. It is very in depth, more than I have seen from any other keying tutorial yet. It focuses on the concepts and techniques of keying, rather than specific tools.
If you like what you have been seeing on this website, please share with others, I’d like to get these tutorials out to anyone who needs them. Thanks!
Without further adieu,
Welcome to CompositingMentor.com
My name is Tony Lyons, and I am a compositor in the VFX industry. I’ve been working in Los Angeles (and abroad) for over 3 years now. In that time I have gained a lot of knowledge that I feel I should give back to the community that has helped me.
I have put off starting a blog for quite some time. But alas! I have so many ideas, tips, gizmos, techniques, opinions, shout outs, questions, images, and notes, that I finally need a place to put them all. I hope they will find a home here on https://compositingmentor.wordpress.com. And I hope all of you find a place where you can learn and contribute as you please!
My goal is to learn as much about compositing and visual effects as humanly possible. It will take several years to accomplish, I have no doubt about that, but in the end I hope to achieve it. This blog will record my journey, as well as inspire and educate others as best I can. I would like for people to be able to follow and learn off of my site if they’d like.
I’ll end with a quote a great instructor once taught me:
“What we do for ourselves dies with us, it’s what we do for others that’s immortal.”
