TUTORIAL: Camera Projection in NukeX

Camera Projection Tutorial Timelapse for NukeX

A Timelapse Camera Projection Tutorial for Nuke

The time has come, I have decided to put together a tutorial. It was spurred on by this post, in reference to a timelapse shot being animated with a camera in post. The funny thing is that I’ve used this specific technique on my reel opener a few years back. In this tutorial I will be supplying you with the same source footage I’m using as well as the started and finished Nuke scripts. Contextually speaking, I think it’s really helpful to follow along actively – that means downloading the footage I’m using and doing the work yourself at the same time.

This is the first tutorial I’ve done for the blog, and I plan to do many more so please leave comments or messages to let me know what you think. It was done on the fly, so there are plenty of “ums” and “ahs”, and a few times I even get stumped on things. However, this tutorial will teach you both the basics as well as the mentality behind doing 3D projection timelapse setups. Even if you aren’t a compositor, as a visual filmmaker it’s good to know that you have these options in your proverbial bag of tricks and knowing what’s entailed so when you’re shooting in the field you’ll know how to shoot for post.

If you’d like to download the footage and project files I’ve used, get them at the bottom of this post. 

So without further ado, the tutorial: Read more

Patryk Kizny at LookyCreative posted a video showing their method of animating a camera move through a static timelapse shot. Check out the video here:

This is a technique I’ve been using for years, so maybe I could throw together a tutorial for you guys. Whaddya say?
