Arena Orbit Live 2015: A Walk through Prashant Shahane’s Workshop on VFX fundamentals

Trace VFX’ 3D head, Prashant Shahane’s workshop at Arena Orbit Live 2015 circled around of VFX fundamentals and Multichannel EXR compositing.

With Festivalslive.com, Prashant shares a much detailed list of the tasks that his workshop focused on, “In VFX Fundamentals, I took the attendees through the process of how to shoot green screen with help of studio light and also how to execute tracking with help of a tracking point. I explained keying in Nuke, and tracking in Boujou. After tracking, the data was exported to Autodesk Maya and in this software we showed how to place 3D element in a tracking shot.” Adds more

Further adds, “In Multichannel EXR compositing I shared how to render EXR passes from Autodesk Maya and how using different techniques you can composite them in Nuke.”

Sharing the vision behind choosing these topics for the workshop Prashant, shares, “I wanted them to experience how a VFX production pipeline works, which surely would polish their skills and help them on their future job at a studio.”

Prashant feels that students should widen their knowledge base about varied animation and vfx software, which they can use to bring out technical outputs.

Concluding the conversation, Prashant spotlights on his experience at Arena Orbit Live 2015 by saying, “It was an awesome experience. Events like this make our industry grow. It brings students from all over India under one roof and good talent’s come into picture…”
