by Brandon Ivey
I have followed your tutorials, but I still get a green glow when I follow your steps through light wrap. Before, it was a white glow on the outside of the subjects. Any ideas?

How to become a Feature Film Compositor by John Lafauce Jr.

How to become a Feature Film Compositor by John Lafauce Jr.

Have you ever wanted to contribute to building a twenty thousand man army in "Troy", make a mouse fly a plane in "Stuart Little 2", or launch a doomed luxury liner in "Titanic?" You can achieve visual feats you never dreamed possible and accomplish them all through the magic of compositing. Read this article written by John Lafauce Jr., and see... How to become a feature film compositor. A note just to clarify: this article is about high-end 2d/3d compositing for long form media such as films, where the goal is to make the work seamless, integrated and "invisible". Not to be confused with compositing for motion graphics, where the objective is to make the object or design stand out and be "visible" to the viewer.

The Other Side of GoPro's November 30, 2016 Announcement

The Other Side of GoPro's November 30, 2016 Announcement

When GoPro announced on November 30, 2016 that they would be cutting 200 full-time jobs, closing the entertainment division, and that their president would be leaving the company, the internet came alive with those who were predicting the company's demise. But there really is another side to the story and as is often the case, the loudest voices are not always the ones with the real story. In this article, Creative COW's co-founder, Ronald Lindeboom, looks at GoPro's announcement and gives his thoughts from his point of view. As Lindeboom concludes at the end of the story, "That GoPro stumbled is not surprising to me, what is surprising is that they had such a remarkable unbroken string of success until 2016."
