Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve 17 Training – Basic Compositing

Compositing, in the simplest terms, is the part of VFX where you put multiple elements together.

This can be keying a green screen, adding a background, stitching multiple takes together, or replacing the content of a screen.

Fusion is a capable node-based compositing program so this a good place to start learning about what you can accomplish with it for compositing live-action footage.

In this video from Blackmagic Design, you’ll learn about:

  • Creating a Fusion Clip from the Edit Page to combine clips
  • Renaming Nodes
  • Using the tracker
  • Stabilizing a shot with Match Move
  • Masking with Polygon Tool
  • Transform tool
  • Resolution independence of Fusion
  • Sky replacement
  • Luma Keyer
  • Erode/Dilate Tool
  • Matte Control node
  • Garbage matte
  • Tracker modifiers
  • Blending modes for merge nodes
