Real-World Techniques for Multipass Compositing in After Effects : We’ll get an exclusive look at the creative process and reasoning behind compositing using render elements from V-Ray in Maya and the physical renderer in CINEMA 4D. We’ll learn how to get the most out of them in an After Effects linear space compositing pipeline using proven advanced techniques from professional, real world scenarios. By the end of this After Effects training, you’ll have a range of new tips and tricks to be able to use in your own projects.
Software required : After Effects CC 2014, Maya 2015, Vray 3.0 and Cinema 4D R16
