Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve 17 Training – 3D Compositing in Fusion

For compositing a shot where the camera moves, being able to track it in 3D space is a big help.

Fusion allows you to handle complex tasks such as tracking a moving camera, and placing objects in 3D space while combining it with your 2D footage.

This is an especially fun lesson involving pirates and a pirate ship!
