In this tutorial, you’ll hit the ground running by learning the process of nodal compositing as you add a title with a background over a video clip, then animate the title using both keyframes and a modifier. You’ll also learn about the image processing pipeline and how to best move between the Edit page and the Fusion page.
Restore or Remove Objects
Once you have a solid grasp of Fusion’s text tools, you’ll move into the realm of visual effects by combining a planar tracker with paint tools to repair the cracked facade of a building. The fundamentals you learn in this lesson can be applied to almost any situation where an object needs to be removed from a shot.
Another common effects task is screen replacement, and you’ll learn how to approach a shaky hand-held shot using Fusion’s powerful Delta Keyer in conjunction with trackers and animated masks, before jumping into the Color Page to color correct the composited image.
Create High-Quality Green Screen Composites
You’ll learn important tradeoffs between speed and flexibility when it comes to maximizing image resolution before tackling a challenging green screen shot. You’ll learn how to work with matte controls; improve hair detail and animate holdout and garbage mattes to create a convincing final composite.
