Face replacement in Nuke...

These are my notes from my nuke class with Damian Allen. Face replacement with Nuke 1. Left pics -> Source face, Right Pics -> Target face 2. Add Tracker node -> Put a tracker node on his chin’s jewel and two other trackers on his eye ends. How to run tracking Get one track on his chin’s jewel – The target is very clear so we can run tracking at once.    For tracking on man’s eye areas – The model is blinking between fr 38 to fr 55. Run tracking frame by frame till he blinks Use clear_fwd or clear_bkwd ( the top right corner ) to avoid the eye area. Hold command + grab the tracker box, move away from the eye area to the eyebrows. click clear_offset  move the track point back to current tracker position ( after he blinks) continue tracking, when he blinks, repeat it the same way. 3. I have made three tracks for the target face.   4. Create a Corner Pin2D Click to From in Corner Pin2D – copy the value from track1 ( Screen Lf eye ) to from4 – Tip:  select the track you want then put the curser to the right side bar, you see the curser changed to hand shape then drag and drop to the CornerPin2d “from4” in this case. copy rest of them.  When pairing up the Tracker with the CornerPin it is wise to ensure that the position of the Tracking points and the CornerPin points correspond with each other (default is anti-clockwise from bottom left).  I only create 3 tracks and we have 4 corners to fill. We need to add some expression on from 1 and from2 from1 x: Tracker1.tracks.3.track_x-50 Y: Tracker1.tracks.3.track_y from2 x: Tracker1.tracks.3.track_x+50 Y: Tracker1.tracks.3.track_y In the CornerPin from tab press copy to. This will copy...

Foreground Compositing in Nuke...

Foreground Compositing in Nuke 1. Background and Foreground Images. Background : an actual scale, Foreground: 1:4 scale 2. Extract the green channel from the foreground. Add Grade node : It is easier to extract the green channel. Use a color picker to get values on the whitepoint and blackpoint on the grade node. Press this icon and you can grab a color from whatever is in your viewer. Following are so helpful keys commends. Command click in the viewer window to sample a pixel point within it. Command + Option will sample the color from the image before the current operation. If you don’t do this it will sample live from the viewer windows ‘’post adjustment’’. Shift combined with any combination of these key strokes will draw a marquee around a sample area. Beware: When you have finished with the color picker press it again to disengage it or it will continue to sample.  3.  Add KeyLight (I called this CoreKlight) node to extract the green channel. Get the screen color value and adjust the tuning. 4. Extract the rest of the foreground besides the stair. Add Grade, Erode (fast) and blur. For the RotoPaint ->I added a blur node / value 3 Then connect this to the Edge KeyLight Then add In node – The matte has been created. 5. Add Key mix to...

Questioning the Food We Eat...

Questioning the Food We Eat   This is my personal story of how looking at the food I eat has helped me to improve my health.  I am a computer animation artist working on movies and living in Los Angeles. I’ve been working pretty much non stop for the last 11 years in 3 different countries. Like most people, I’ve spent most of my time at work and on other “high” priority things in life.  And unfortunately, I wasn’t able to give much attention to my health. I generally didn’t have any serious problems with my health and I always felt that I was relevantly healthier than most. Therefore questioning what I eat everyday didn’t get my attention. Since I’ve left home, I’ve eaten whenever and whatever is available. Like most of people in modern society, we squeeze our meal times in during our working hours. I developed my own  way of my cooking. Whatever I eat should not take more than 15 min to prepare. It has to be quick to cook and also delicious. Because of this, most of the time, I just ate some kind of convenient food or pre-made food.  3 months ago, I finally had time to take a break from work. On my first day from not working in June 2013, my body wanted to get up at 7 AM as usual and get ready to go to work. My brain had to tell my body: “No work to go to today!”. How funny that the body remembers it’s daily routine. My high blood pressure pill The first thing I do in the morning is take my high blood pressure pill.  Obviously I had too much time to kill. That morning, I was staring at the bottle for a while. It says Lisinopril 7.5...
