Practice your NUKE skills and prepare for the zombie apocalypse in this NUKE Compositing tutorial. Along with the green-screen zombie clip and graveyard plate supplied in the exercise files, you’ll use NUKE’s keying, color correction, and effects tools to make a zombie rise from the grave and animate the glow of an approaching zombie hoard.

First you’ll learn how to apply a quick key with Primatte, and enhance the zombie with realistic blood, red eyes, and fangs. Then, turning to the graveyard plate, you’ll make a day-for-night color correction and add interactive lighting. Finally, you’ll composite the key, plate, and effects and finalize the shot, using color correction and a push in effect. The process is broken down into easy-to-watch five-minute videos, rich in valuable VFX production techniques from compositing guru Steve Wright.
