- [Voiceover] Hello, my name is Mark Lefitz and welcome to Photorealistic Lighting with Maya and Nuke. In this course I'm going to be guiding you through the essential tools, techniques and workflow to effectively light, render and composite a CG object. In this case, a futuristic vehicle to a photographic plate. I'll start by discussing image based lighting, including HDRI image creation and manipulation. Next, we'll jump into Maya to explore shading, lighting and rendering.
In Nuke we'll look at how to use our output passes to render our final composite. Finally, we'll put some finishing touches in Photoshop. So let's get lighting with Photorealistic Lighting with Maya and Nuke.
