Course Description

"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.
