"It's NOT Matte Painting" is a series of composite tutorials. Using Photoshops ability to open video, these compositing tutorials go through imports, edits, and composites the video only using Photoshop. I believe one of the reasons this series of tutorials were so successful is because they were very simple and easy to follow. Even though there are plenty of matte painting tutorials online, there are very few that cater to the novice or the beginner.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course has been designed for the beginner in Photoshop, students, independent film makers, and hobbyists alike. Each step is call out, and shortcut keys are visually shown.

A little about me…

Hi, my name is Tony Ross, owner and creator of TonyTeach[dot]com and Big Block Books. I am an animator and software trainer, and I also like to dabble in music, and creative writing.

My specialty in software training, is taking complex applications, and breaking them down into simple steps that even a beginner, or novice can follow. With over 2 decades of experience, my tutorials have been featured on Creative Cow, Adobe, Toon Boom, GoMediazine, Infinite Skills, O’Reilly, and I am also a Lynda[dot]com author.

In teaching, and in life, I try and follow this mantra…

Keep it simple, make it perfect; If you don't have the time to make it perfect, rethink the idea. - Tony Ross
