Foundry invites you to their event

Foundry Webinar: Pulling a rabbit out of Nuke Vol.2

About this event

With more than 65 credits on IMDB, veteran Lead Compositor Jan Burda from Mackevision will use this talk to reveal his favourite compositing magic tricks in Nuke, whilst giving some insight into his work.

Jan says: “I like the word ‘Bildglück’ (in German, ‘image luck’). It describes the sudden, unexpected achievement of an effect you hadn’t planned that occurs due to a wrong connection. This is part of my job I really like that I’d be happy to share. It’s about the creative and playful use of Nuke: the fun and love of working in compositing.”

Jan will be presenting using the standard Nuke toolset, without scripting. Some of the fascinating points covered will include:

  • Hidden magic in the Noise Node
  • Using Idistort and VectorBlur in a different way
  • Understanding other crafts in film to help improve your own work
