Blender SFX Workshop DVD 'Greenscreen Nightmare!' Released


blender_sfx_workshop_logo.jpgRemember the 'Color Difference Keying with Nodes' by David Weese? Well, David has now produced an hour long DVD teaching you the secrets of successful keying.

David writes:

This is a "look over the artists shoulder" approach. While newbies will benefit, this video series assumes basic knowledge of the Blender interface. Each volume will focus on a real world production challenge.Our goal and slogan is "Do your work better. Do better work". We believe digging deeper, thinking outside the box, and being practical can help everyone do amazing work with Blender.

Volume one is called "Greenscreen Nightmare", and focuses on Blender's Node Based Compositor as we tackle a really tough greenscreen shot that requires knowledge of color difference keying, garbage matting, spill removal, and even 2D tracking.

Best Regards

Dave Weese

The looks sweet - check out the detail page containing an excerpt of the video. We'll try to get a review of the DVD posted asap.
The 1-hour long DVD is priced at $39.99 and you can order it online (duh ;-).

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. there more Blender DVD tutorials around ? Where can we find information about that titles? When will Blender release those Animation DVD they recorded with Bassam ?

  2. I'm really not trying to troll here, but is all that really necessary to key that out? You may have to mix your keying types up a bit in AE, but I've had to key worse footage than that, and I think the results come out better. Hell, i think the results of a bad roto come out better IMHO.
