In this week's fxpodcast we discuss linear workflow. We geek out with 3D guru Master Zap of Mental Images about linear compositing workflow: separating fact from fiction, and discuss just how viable it is to set up a correct linear pipeline.
Why is linear compositing valuable?
Feature film compositing is nearly always 'linear' ironically - given the files are normally log ( ! ) but in the world of video and HD often multipass compositing and compositing is often done incorrectly leading to a series of hacks, fudges, and workarounds to make images look right. Zap and Mike discuss the issue and flag ways to set up a correct pipeline.
