Learning the fundamentals behind pulling a Green screen key is very important, but it can be hard to know where to start. This course, NUKE Green Screen Keying Fundamentals, will teach you how to complete a simple green screen shot and then composite it over a new background. First, you'll discover how to analyze each unique shot and which background colors work best to film on and why. Next, you'll work through each one of the major keyers inside of NUKE, learning how to refine each tool and what their strengths and weaknesses are for different types of green screens. Finally, you'll pre-process the green screen footage to create the most optimized key possible and composite it over top of a newly integrated background. When you're finished with this course, you'll not only have a completed green screen composite, but you'll also have the knowledge and skills needed to key any basic green screen image in the future. Software required: NUKE.
