I don't know if this is frowned upon in this forum (this is not meant as a thinly disguised attempt at advertising), or has been mentioned before , but I'm always curious to see what other Fusion users are doing with their compositing programme of choice. If you've got a website available for other users to view work please post the url so we can oooh and aaah over some great work.

As much as I sometimes feel like a novice compared to some of the work I've seen displayed here, I will get the ball rolling...

Yikes you may feel like a novice but your reel sure says otherwise. VERY good work indeed.

You can find the Pigs reel at Flying Pig Ranch
Hey Jules, nice idea. :mf_prop:

I'll join the novice line :)

Sometimes i feel a little out of place here with our cartoony stuff but we use Fusion on every project.

Enjoy!:

Hey,

My stuff at my website :)

Part of this is Flame though. But most of the film work is Fusion.

Cheers,
Pavle

We use Fusion both for traditional compositing as well as for evil things.

The normal production stuff can be found at www.thevisualmd.com, while the neat stuff is at www.anatomicaltravel.com/research.

We're not big on reels, as most of our work is non-traditional, like tradeshows, kiosks, museums, websites, litigation, publishing, etc.

Time to add my threepence to this topic.

This is my grading reel (I am now preparing the compositing part of it). Please say what you think.
It is aimed at people who rather now a thing or two about the subject as I am planning on using it
to look for more work.
It is less than 20MB as this is a most common limit for such creations here in Poland.
Most of those were graded in Fusion.

One day Gringo I want to be like you :)

Is the glass breaking shot from Wanted yours? If so than chapeau bas!
I watched it few times and it keeps astonishing me.

Here is mine http://www.monopix.is

Just press play :D

All this material is 99% done by me, both 2D and 3D. I started this little company called Monopix jan. 2009, the name is for a reason = single pixel and I am the only employee ;)

Thank you :)

Yes, this was the most challenging shot I made for Wanted.
I wasn't the first in trying to accomplish its visualization, but luckily, I managed to make the final hi-res :)

Amongst the pecularities of its compositing were:
  • Endeavour to cram the reflection of the bright sunset and the face into the same color range leaving sharp out-of-range highlights at the same time.
  • Constantly changing color concept for the environment (from comic book-like to greenish, then to natural-looking, then to golden etc...), which lead sometimes to re-compositing the city plate and re-rendering the reflection pass. In general, every little change I made to the 3D-character or to the environment had to be applied to their reflection/refraction as well, either using special masks, which contained reflected-refracted man and environment, or by means of complete re-renderings of these passes when the changes were so significant that they couldn't be applied otherwise.
  • Separate the DOF and motion blur of glass edges and objects the pieces reflect/refract (we had no chance to render 3D DOF and motion blur).
  • Blending between practical Mr.X and the 3D one in the moment he jumps towards the glass, which involved morphing and very precise 3D-passes compositing.
  • Turning 2D glass with a bullet hole into 3D cracks. We created a special dissolve mask on the edge of Fusion and Maya for that.
  • Seeing the same angry face which was looking from my display for many days :)

Fortunately, the Rendering TD was the correct guy for the job and by the end of our long and perilous adventure he churned out any sophisticated passes I asked for, including ones which were invented especially for this shot, like a machine gun :)

The glass simulation itself made by our R'n'D looked impressive. It's hard to say which I liked more: the final look or the simulation previews :)

Damn guys, every single site posted has work varying from the following grading system:

-Damn, that's good...
-Holy crap!
-I'm doing a Seppuku :i

In other words, everyone's work is very inspiring.

Here is my WIP website, the Reel is a rough cut and the Gallery is very incomplete, but expect updates in the coming weeks.
I need all the feedback I can get before I finalize and litter the interweb with it.
