Nuke for 3D Artists Episode 3 - Multipass compositing




Episode 3 in Nuke for 3D artists covers how to create a basic multipass composite (in this case from V-Ray) in Nuke.  In a future episode we will be covering how to put together a far more complex multipass composite that allows a deeper level of control in post.

I've also started a weekly video blog that will cover development on the series and a few other things. Apologies for the sound in this one as I was using my camera on board mic instead of my good condenser.

Nuke for 3D Artists - Starting a new YouTube Series





Here's the 1st two videos in a brand new YouTube series I'm doing Called 'Nuke for 3D Artists'. Its aim is to show some cool things that can save 3D people a LOT of time re-rendering or setting up.

These first two have been put up together as the 1st on the shuffle node is required knowledge for the 2nd one.  The 2nd one shows how you can change the lighting in a 3D scene without re-rendering in post by the uses of light select passes.  It always surprises me how many people don't use these for setting up their lighting!!

Videos will be uploaded each Monday and Wednesday at around 3pm (With the next 6 already recorded, edited and ready to roll).  The videos will be a mix of short specific subjects and more project orientated ones ramping up in complexity as time goes.

Please pass the word around where you can online as there's no point me doing this series if no bastard is watching them lol.  Its been a couple of years since I recorded any tutorials at all, and to be honest I've been meaning to record these for the last...oh...2 years. But work and real life have been so busy I never got around to it until now.

Please note I'm doing these in a personal capacity only, and they are done for or with anyone I work for.

Concept Art


I've been messing around with some concept art to relax this week on an evening. I figured as there's very little I can show from my 'day job' that I may as well upload a couple of them here. (Has it really been October last year last time I updated this blog????!)

New Painting - The Green Skull


Here's a painting I've been wanting to get around to doing for a while that I painted yesterday afternoon.  I haven't been painting as much as I'd like of late and thought it was by far time I did another one.
