Learning VFX? Compositing it the process of putting all your elements together.
You may have footage of an actor on a greenscreen, background footage, and foreground elements like snow.
Fusion allows you to merge all these together, create depth of field, and remove a greenscreen to put your actor in the scene.
If node-based compositing in Fusion is new to you, you’ll see an example of how the tools take on a flowchart-like appearance as you add your various elements and tools.
