Join Mark Lefitz for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Photorealistic Lighting with Maya and Nuke (2012).
It is worth mentioning that when it comes to standard Maya and Nuke…operations, I will work with the assumption that you have a basic working…knowledge of these applications.…If you are new to 3D, Maya, and compositing, I would suggest you check out some…of the essential training courses here at Lynda.com.…A basic working knowledge of photography is also helpful. Here are some…additional courses you might want to view.…All these skills are helpful, but they are by no means essential for you to…follow along and understand this course.…
I will briefly go over some of the more important principles as we proceed…with the course.…
