To what extent is this course geared toward people interested in Visual FX work? I really want to learn how to do the 3D masking and tracking so I can do serious compositions.

Fusion has been used on feature films like The Hunger Games, Dr Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy, as well as hit television shows like Empire, NCIS and American Horror Story. The Fusion Fundamentals Training is a perfect start for anyone who is interested in learning visual effects and compositing, and when you are ready to learn more advanced techniques we got it covered.

If I subscribe, do I get access to the video files being used in the tutorials so I can follow along? Or should I just grab some scrap video of my own?

Is it possible, or will it be possible to download the video tutorials on this site.  It would be really useful. I joined this site about a week ago and I'm also a member of Mixing Light and the ability to download the content and review when off-line is a really useful one.

Can you please advise.

 

Thanks
Karl

Love this format and Kevin is really clear on explaining every bits and pieces. 

I'm sure many questions will rise as soon as the topics will become more complicate

Thanks a lot for the efforts

Unfortunately, we don't offer video downloads because of distribution agreements and piracy.

In the lessons already posted you can use any video clips, but you will get access to download clips and assets in lessons where this is necessary to follow along.
