Workbench Set Extension
24 June 2011

The goal for this locked-off greenscreen VFX shot was to create photoreal CG assets in Maya that extend the set behind the workbench. I also wanted to enhance the character in the shot by removing his left pinky and ring fingers, a result of his previous misdoings. A scar tissue patch created in Photoshop was then tracked & warped into place using Nuke.

Sci-Fi Wristband
04 February 2011

Inspired by the trailer for Jon Favreau's "Cowboys & Aliens" film, I created a short VFX shot using greenscreen elements filmed on my Canon 550D/T2i, a photograph I took while on honeymoon in Venice and a multipass CG render out of Maya's mental ray.

Stereo Blocks 2D to 3D Conversion
11 September 2010

This anaglyph stereoscopic video was created from 2D footage that was converted to 3D using PFTrack, Maya and Nuke. After the footage was matchmoved in PFTrack, I used Maya to set up the stereo cameras and render out new views for the Left & Right eyes. I added some new CG foreground elements to enhance the feeling of scene depth with added parallax. Nuke was used to composite the elements, do colour corrections and create depth of field using a Z-depth pass rendered out of Maya.

This image is a Maya Software render created during the first part of the Escape Studios online training course entitled "Advanced Shading with Maya & Mental Ray". Escape Studios provides the geometry & textures and they work you through creating the shading networks for all the various materials. I'm quite enjoying working in the Hypershade and learning more about the utilitiy nodes, projections, and layered shaders.
