The big transition | We look for the common ground | From layers to nodes
In this tutorial, we take an introductory look at node based compositing from the perspective of an After Effects user. If you are someone who has lots of experience with After Effects, and wants to get into using a program like Shake, Nuke, or Fusion, this will help you get on the right track.
In Part one of this tutorial, we take a look at the differences in importing footage in After Effects VS. a node based compositing application (in this case Fusion 5).
We also cover:
• Working with footage with different frame rates
• Working with footage with Straight VS. Post Multiplied alphas, and explaining the difference
• Removing fields
• Setting pixel aspect ratios
• Looping your footage
