    53:40 Compositing in Nuke

    Helge begins by tracking the camera and blocking scene elements in NukeX, then imports the tracked scene via FBX into Cinema 4D. Next he adds additional elements in Cinema 4D, and utilizes Physical Sky and Global Illumination to match the lighting in the original plate. Helge provides a basic introduction to the Turbulence FD plugin for Cinema 4D, which he uses to add exhaust flames to the spaceship in the shot. Finally, you’ll see how the RenderElements plugin for Cinema 4D is used to output multiple separate render layers or takes, which are then composited back onto the original plate in Nuke.

    Recorded live at IBC 2014 in Amsterdam.

  2. Check out all the new features and more on Cineversity: cineversity.com/learn/R17

    Explore the Cinema 4D Release 17 Motion Tracking workflow, with new options to compensate for Lens Distortion and evaluate tracks in a Graph View. Learn how to apply a Lens Profile within the Motion Tracker, and automatically track the footage. Evaluate these tracks in the new Motion Tracker Graph View in order to quickly identify and fix tracks that have errors. Once the 3D scene is reconstructed, you'll use the Lens Distortion Post Effect to render the 3D elements with the same distortion as the original footage.

    Learn how to create a lens profile with the C4D R17 Lens Distortion tool.
