Digital Compositing

This was a project undertaken in my second year at Staffordshire University. We were given some templates to download including the back plate and an animation of a robot and we were given a tutorial on how to create the original composition of the robot appearing from behind the structure seen in the foreground. 

We were then asked to use our own knowledge to advance the piece and adapt it in whichever way we saw fit. I chose to create a day to night conversion and add a city skyline into the background.

This project was the first time I had used Nuke as a compositing tool.


Below is a breakdown of the parts of the project that I created after taking over from the tutorial.
