A kind donator here (will be revealed if he agrees) shipped this product my way, to see what all the hype is all about. Now is your chance to check it out for yourself, and see if this is worth your money.

In this DVD, Instructor Matt Skonicki takes you through the entire process of compositing 2 HD Shots with 3D integration. The best part of this tutorial is it uses Autodesk Composite for compositing which ships free with Autodesk Maya 2011. Matt starts off by taking you On Location to demonstrate the capturing of the raw plate and HDRI images. From there he goes through creating the final HDRI image in Photoshop. The next chapters include detailed tracking in SynthEyes, setting up the scene in Maya, creating masks in After Effects, Animation of the 3D objects in Maya, adding particle effects, lighting, and render layers. Last, Matt composites the final scenes in Autodesk Composite. This tutorial is perfect for those who want an "Out of the Box" comprehensive tutorial on compositing 3D into your own camera footage primarily using Autodesk Maya and Composite.
