FXPHD – ARN101: Introduction to Arnold
This course is targeted at anyone who may already be familiar with rendering and lighting but who wants to move over to Arnold; or just wants to know how Arnold can help in production.
Taught by Ulf Lundgren, the goal of the course is to get you up to speed in Arnold and help you understand the differences when using Arnold compared to other Render engines. Prior experiences of rendering and lighting is a plus but not necessary since this course should still help you get on your way to amazing renders.
Class 1: A brief history of Arnold and how it integrates into a production workflow and the good vs bad when comparing Arnold with other renderers.
Class 2: How to setup and render with a linear workflow using color managment in Arnold, followed by and an in depth look at all the types of lights Arnold has to offer.
Class 3: An in depth look at shading with Arnold and how to use the different types of shaders in production.
Class 4: An in depth look at render effects and settings and learn how to export ASS files to do batch rendering of sequences using kick.
Class 5: Lighting and shading of a troll. Should give you a good hands on knowledge of how to use Arnold shaders.
Class 6: Second part of the troll shading class. Rounding up and rendering.
Class 7: Workflow suggestions, camera lens shaders and explanation sample.
Class 8: Cellphone packshot rendering!
Class 9: A case study of how to do lighting and shading for live action integration. Part 2. Rendering with AOV’s and how to best use them in compositing.
Class 10: Class 10 deals with integrating 3D into live action backplates. A tracked scene is provided both for Softimage (as is preferred) as well as for Maya. This class should teach you everything needed to start adding your 3D to live action.
