Introduction to Flame Workshop

Los Angeles

Address: 7715 Sunset Blvd., Hollywood, Dede Allen Seminar Room


10am – 5pm, Sat. - Sun., June 23 - 24

Attendees will be working on an iMac. The workshop capacity is limited to 10 people. 

Autodesk® Flame software connects editing and visual FX by integrating familiar editing tools and node-based compositing directly into the timeline. Save time from complex multi-application workflows by having all the tools you need at your fingertips so you can focus on being creative.
The 2-day class provides an introduction to working with Autodesk® Flame and includes demonstration and hands-on exercises in editing, color correction, compositing, and animating in 3D space. It is designed for students who have knowledge of film or television-practices, but are novices to Autodesk Flame product family.

Understanding of the project workflow in Flame:
At the end of day 1 of the course, the editor will be able to create projects in Flame, import source material, edit a sequence, add segment based FX and output to file.

At the end of day 2 of the course, the editor will be able to understand and create node-based effects inside the Smoke timeline.
