The Industry's New Workflow Paradigm – 3D Compositing

A panel discusses the evolving workflows having a profound effect on the work of all 3D animators as well as 2D departments who now do the "finish work" like never before using Flame, Combustion, Toxik, and Nuke.

Monday, 7 December 2009


  • Steve Wright, Master Trainer - Visual effects compositing, Nuke and Shake
  • Damian Allen, President of Pixerati LLC - Visual effects design and pipeline consultant

Speakers will explore and explain this new trend in visual effects that incorporates 3D geometry, lights, and cameras in addition to the usual 2D images into the final compositing of a shot. This new workflow paradigm profoundly affects both the 3D and 2D departments as the compositor now does much more of the "finish work" using 3D-capable compositing programs such as Flame, Combustion, Toxik, and Nuke.

Sponsored by Nuke.
