I’m excited to announce that I will be presenting a talk on “The Math of Comp” as part of the “Meet the Masters” Compositing event at SparkFX this year. Register here to be sure you don’t miss out!

The Math of Comp aims to share knowledge that will deepen your technical understanding of Nuke, as we talk about some of the fundamentals behind what Nuke’s tools are actually doing to the pixels in your images. We’ll cover the math of how the Grade node works, followed by a demonstration of how different methods of matching blacks affect your images differently. Next, we’ll take a look at the transform node, and how transforming an image filters its pixels, while touching on why node concatenation is important. Finally, we’ll look at how data on a pixel level can help us do pretty interesting things in a flexible way using ST Maps.

Additionally, my talented colleagues will be presenting talks under the umbrella “From v001 to Done”, discussing some of the essential soft skills you need to have as an artist working in VFX, how to assemble your show efficiently, as well as how to polish & add optical finesse to your shots.

My talk will be streaming March 4th 2021, and will be followed up with a panel on March 6th, 2021.
