Digital Compositing for VFX Production

Compositing is an integral part of the modern digital production process. Perhaps you can have the flexibility of shooting an interview or stand against a backdrop that can be easily changed. Maybe you’re looking to create a fully virtual set that your subject can move through and interact with. You may even be looking to create a Complex Visual Effects sequence with both practical and digital elements combined into a single seamless finished product. This course aims to introduce and develop students’ technical and aesthetic skills in digital compositing relevant to the production of digital visual effects.
