Compositing Visual Effects: Essentials for the Aspiring Artist


Steve Wright
Focal Press, $35
paperback

Steve Wright's Compositing Visual Effects is an excellent overview of the compositing world for beginners. Comprehensive and a pleasure to read, the book describes the techniques necessary to make it in the rapidly-expanding world of digital visual effects. Don't let the children on the cover fool you: this is not a kid's book. Wright delves deeply into the technicalities of this computerized cosmos, while never forgetting he is aiming the book at entry-level compositors or those wishing to better understand the digital effects domain. He covers rotoscoping, wire removal, blue/greenscreen work and more in good detail. You get a better understanding of topics such as bit depth, compression and interpolation. Wright explains real-world situations, such as the work an entry-level compositor can expect and professional workflows in compositing houses. Rating: 4
