AE to Nuke: 01 Basic Sky Replacement

For the assets to follow along yourself, go to the following link and select “project”:

It’s a good Idea to deinterlace the video and to convert the .mov provided into an image sequence, and I will tell you guys how to do that in the next video.

This is my first tutorial, I am sure I will get better as I go along, but please let me know some feedback.  Too fast? too slow? to boring?  etc.  I’d be glad to hear.  Thanks and I look forward to posting more videos.

Cheers,

First Blog Post: An Brief Introduction

Introduction

Hello all!

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:

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.”
