Final Product What You'll Be Creating
Set extension and/or CG integration with live action footage is a key aspect of Visual Effects work, and it’s our job as CG artists to ensure that we use a suitable workflow for the job at hand. In this detailed 3-day Premium tutorial series, Alvaro Castañeda shows us one possible workflow, moving from PFTrack for tracking, to Maya for modelling, texturing and rendering, and then compositing the result in Maya Composite, having used AE along the way! ‘The Skateshop’ is an unmissable tutorial for anyone looking to get into VFX.

Breakdown of Day 1
Today we’ll start by processing the footage into something we can use throughout the whole process. We’ll then track the footage, and finish by importing it into our 3D application to help us build our 3D models.
