Previs for Free(ish)
February 13 @ 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM PST
Previsualization, or previz, is the process of visualizing the angles and camera moves you’ll be employing ahead of the actual shoot. The problem with previz is that it’s traditionally cost a LOT OF MONEY. Even for simple projects. In this webinar we’ll look at using free tools (well, some of them are “free” with Adobe Creative Cloud) to create a professional previs, complete with character animation and accurate set detailing.
• Using Sketchup to create an accurate set layout
• Creating and animating virtual actors using Adobe Fuse and Mixamo
• Bringing everything into Unreal Engine to create the scene
• Light, block, and edit the scene together using Unreal’s Level Sequencer
