Escape Studios is offering a “Camera Tracking for VFX” course. The
new online course teaches the art of mixing computer-generated
objects into real-life footage.

“Camera Tracking for VFX” covers background, workflows and best
practices in a flexible online format that includes over 12 hours of
video content. For more information, or to register, please visit
The course covers software applications PFTrack 5 and Maya Live, part
of Autodesk Maya, showing techniques that are applicable to all
software packages. A basic understanding of Maya is required, but the
course assumes zero prior knowledge of camera tracking and takes
students to an advanced level.

After completing the course, students will be well-versed in
tracking, solving and adjusting shots, as well as techniques for
manipulating footage, according to Dominic Davenport, CEO and founder
of Escape Studios. A series of accompanying online videos is provided
to clarify key lesson points, and students can experiment with
included sample footage for hands-on learning. Additionally, as part
of Escape Studios’ online learning system, immediate access to
professional feedback and communication with other users is provided
and encouraged.

“Camera Tracking for VFX” contains more than 12 hours of video
content and is available for US$299.
