+ cmiVFX cmiStudios. launches a brand new video for Eyeon's Fusion product line. The training video covers the process from converting a 2D matte painting into a 3D scene fly through. The source materials included in this video are of the highest possible quality, and are worth thousands of dollars more than the video itself. We include the source at no extra charge for cmiVFX customers. There are also several different project files demonstrating the differences between the different techniques of matte painting extraction.
3D Matte Painting Extractions are a now common process in the visual effects industry. The technique for matte paintings and 3d extraction have been around for years, but normally found in a 3d animation package like Maya, XSI, or Cinema 4D. Since version 5.0 of Eyeon's Fusion compositing application, 3d tools have been available to generate 3d style composites. With the latest release of Fusion, additional tools have been introduced in order to assist in the workflow of using 3d projections utilities such as the "Projector" and "Camera". As usual, we show several different methods for achieving your goals so that you can apply your learning to your own personal projects. We included a 2k matte painting with a solid plate and in 20 different layers to assist you with the time it takes to prepare your materials for the composites. There is no doubt about it, we created the perfect environment and digital assets to get you into this project no matter what path you decide. We have set up the projects with Fusion 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3 users in mind. We include a project file with the new PAW projection tool in 5.3, but heavily rely on the traditional tools inside of Fusion with the other variations. For more information, please - Click Here
