Dover Studios Releases Shake: Compositing Workflow DVD

Dover Studios Releases VFX Training DVD (October 16, 2007)
DMN Newswire--2007-10-16-- Dover Studios announced the release of Shake: Compositing Workflow, their latest visual effects training DVD. Shake: Compositing Workflow is an introduction to node-based compositing for visual effects artists working in film and television. Shake is the compositing program of choice for many high-end film and television productions around the world. On this DVD visual effects artists, Andrew Hazelden and Russell Hazelden, explore the Shake user interface and the workflow used to create a composite.

Essential topics include: loading footage into a Shake script with the FileIn node, adjusting node parameters, layering images with the Over node, using RAM and disk based Flipbooks to preview composites, working with nodes and noodles, and rendering finished composites using the FileOut node.

Discover how to use Shake's powerful Primatte Keyer to process images shot on blue or green screen backgrounds. Learn how to create a "garbage matte" to improve the quality of a key. Study the illumination levels of a blue screen background by using the pixel analyzer.



Advanced topics include: using proxies to work with high resolution footage in real time, relinking missing media, customizing global parameters, viewing color channels in the Viewer and in Flipbooks, using horizontal and vertical compare modes, viewing alpha channels, creating multiple viewers, configuring the domain of definition to reduce computer processing time, and several techniques for managing media in the File Browser.
