In this lecture, Rob will take you through the necessary steps to dial in a composite in order to provide richness and realism required for feature film work. Using a real production shot from the film Priest, Rob will focus on the addition of small details to the composite using Nuke. As he works through the composite, Rob will layer various lighting and atmospheric effects, some which are almost unnoticeable, but can make all the difference when making the shot "feel" real versus just "looking" real.
