Course Overview

Award-winning VFX professional Allan McKay returns to CGWorkshops with a new, advanced 8 week, fully mentored online training course in FumeFX.

If you’ve already had some experience blowing stuff up, this workshop is for you.  But if you haven’t used FumeFX before, don’t worry – in Week 1, Allan explains the basics of the program for you before starting out with the creation of some seriously killer fire!  Moving on through the weeks you’ll cover smoke, massive clouds and weather, fluids, ink droplets (yes, you read right, ink is huge right now) compositing in Nuke and rendering.

But it doesn’t end there. In Weeks 7 & 8 Allan puts you though his “Nuclear Blast” program, where you’ll take everything you’ve learned and put it towards an actual production shot. Allan describes this as a “realistic large scale nuclear explosion going off in the desert causing maximum destruction!”

As well as great weekly video tutroials, and a friendly closed-forum classroom environment, Allan will run regular weekly live web feedback sessions (recorded for those who can’t make it.)

Time-limited, fully-funtional student Fume FX licenses will be available for students who take this workshop.
