Lynda.com - Wed, 01/27/2016 - 19:00
Authored By: Steve Wright

Released On: 1/28/2016

Practice your NUKE skills and prepare for the zombie apocalypse in this NUKE Compositing tutorial. Along with the green-screen zombie clip and graveyard plate supplied in the exercise files, you'll use NUKE's keying, color correction, and effects tools to make a zombie rise from the grave and animate the glow of an approaching zombie hoard.

First you'll learn how to apply a quick key with Primatte, and enhance the zombie with realistic blood, red eyes, and fangs. Then, turning to the graveyard plate, you'll make a day-for-night color correction and add interactive lighting. Finally, you'll composite the key, plate, and effects and finalize the shot, using color correction and a push in effect. The process is broken down into easy-to-watch five-minute videos, rich in valuable VFX production techniques from compositing guru Steve Wright.

Lynda.com - Wed, 01/27/2016 - 19:00
Authored By: Chad Chelius

Released On: 1/28/2016

Long documents can be difficult to design, but long, data-heavy documents are particularly daunting. Companies that produce directories, glossaries, and catalogs often choose to design them manually, copying and pasting content into an InDesign layout. But there's a better way. With InDesign and XML, your data-heavy designs can be almost effortless. By setting up an InDesign document with the correct tags, you can import XML data so that it flows into the document already formatted.

In these tutorials, Chad Chelius explains what XML is and then walks through the entire process in InDesign, from setting up the document and tagging the content, to cleaning the data and fine-tuning the layout. He also offers tips for saving your work in an InDesign template, to regenerate directories when new entries are added, update catalogs seasonally, etc. By the end of the course, you should be able to use this workflow to speed up data-heavy design jobs, big and small.
