Many people start their careers in the film visual effects industry by working in tracking and matchmove. In this brand new, fully mentored 8 week CGWorkshop, 10 year matchmove veteran Francis Camacho will take you through the tracking process using 3D Equalizer.
You’ll start at the basics – walking through the 3DEqualizer UI, looking at setup-preferences, screen layouts and different modes. Francis will then work with you on a provided shot – on workflow setup and 2D and 3D solves for both auto and manual tracking. You’ll learn how to set this shot up for exportation into Maya and Nuke, discover the importance of lens distortion data and lens grids. You’ll solve a green screen shot, uncover the secrets of successful object tracking, solve pre-viz data before moving on to more advanced techniques in the final weeks.
The whole way, Francis and your classmates will work with you, giving you personal feedback on your shots in a closed forum-style classroom.
“Matchmoving in 3DEqualizer” CGWorkshop by Ben Swinbanks (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, and upcoming Pan and Tarzan) will guide you on your way to mastering this essential tool.
