4.0 out of 5 stars A great guide for all, 12 Feb. 2002
This review is from: The Art and Science of Digital Compositing (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Computer Graphics) (Hardcover)
The digital compositor has recently received as much acknowledgement and appreciation in his work as the cameraman and director. Never before have there been so many films that have had some subtle or blatantly obvious compositing.
Although compositing is only part of the production process it is however a vast and often complex area to get to grips with. Ron Brinkman has very delicately taken the major processes of compositing and broken them down into easy to understand steps, which often go in to great depth and therefore lead to a good understanding of all the processes and techniques involved. With his great experience he has passed on some fundamental tips and examples. Sometimes I felt that there should be a few more illustrations and images to explain some of the processes but generally there are clear and precise explanations.
A world of warning, I would not recommend this book to those who do not have a basic knowledge of digital imagery. As the cover suggests, there is a degree of science involved! As a experience compositor myself, I would however recommend it as a great companion for those who want to learn or are quite experienced in compositing.
