Join Steve Wright for an in-depth discussion in this video Exercise files, part of VFX Keying: Master Course.
- [Instructor] If you're a Premium Member, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. The exercise files can be found under the Downloads tab at the top of the course page. Select Exercise Files from the popup menu, where you will see two Exercise Files folders. Download the first one for the main keying course. The second one is only needed if you're doing the keyer tutorials in the Chapter 12 Appendix. Here's the Exercise Files folder downloaded to my desktop. If you open it, you'll see the folders for each chapter that contain the NUKE scripts used in the videos.
The Media folder contains all the media for the main course. The Chapter 12 keyer tutorials have their own Media folder. All of the NUKE scripts are set up with relative addressing, so NUKE will automatically connect all the media on your machine as long as you leave the NUKE scripts and media together in the Exercise Files folder. You can move the entire Exercise Files folder anywhere you want, just be sure not to move any of the files or directories outside of the folder.
If you have a Basic Membership, you don't have access to the Exercise Files, but you can still learn a lot by just watching the videos, or working with your own media. So, let's get started.
