From blocking out the initial previsualization and then moving onto fracturing geometry and prepping the effects, we then go through creating realistic explosions the dynamics, missiles, smoke, sparks, fire, every single effect needed as well as all of the additional dynamic fracturing and coregraphing our shots to get the specific desire effects we want.
This is by far the most comprehensive training material out there that will go through the entire process of being an FX Technical Diretor on a movie and tackling all of the aspects you would in real life and on a real Hollywood film production!
* Over 8 Hours and 13 Videos of Training Tutorial Videos!
* Intense training going through real production pipelines and processes, everything you need to get you up to speed with how to create visual effects for Hollywood movies using all of the techniques and approaches that FX Technical Directors use day to day at most leading Visual Effects Studios and to get the best results.
* Recorded at HD 1080P - crystal clear video at High Resolution
* Intense Fume FX Training both creating fireballs and explosions, pyroclastic smoke, thick dust and procedural impact effects, Missile Trails and dozens of other effects covered here!
* Crash course into using Thinking Particles, we move heavily into how Thinking Particles works in real production proven techniques, as well as advanced fracturing, procedural and secondary effects, as well as getting complete control from your dynamic simulations.
* Using Fume FX and Thinking Particles together to create various destructive effects! As well as X-Mesh and various other tools to make your scenes cached, fast and interactive.
* Gain a better understanding of what's going on 'under the hood' in Fume, Thinking Particles and most of the leading tools used in the industry! So you can better use them for your FX purposes and get that 'specific result' you're after
"This DVD is designed to be the secret weapon all FX TD's should have, not only when initially grasping new features and mastering Fume & Thinking Particles, but also something to refer back to constantly during production as a secret manual on how to kick ass in the production workplace."
