Workflows & Knowledge From Major Studios
Our Education & Workflows is designed to save you months of developing your own.
Learn how to operate a In-Camera VFX Stage
Setup nDisplay, calibrate your configuration & take a production from Previz to On-set production using Unreal Engine & the Vp Toolkit Studio Plugin.
You can learn from anywhere, at your own pace, based on your own schedule with our MOOC (Massive Online Open Courses).
We have found this to get the best results outside of onsite training. Operators in training can work through all of the technical hurdles that come with Virtual Production setups, without falling behind in a class.
