Students studying Visual Effects explore the various processes by which imagery is created or manipulated outside of a live action shot, including the blending of background plates or matte paintings with 3D architectural, character, or elemental assets. Course content includes lighting and filming techniques, tracking and compositing of elements, and creating both particle and dynamic effects. Utilizing industry software such as Houdini, Maya, Nuke, After Effects, Photoshop, Realflow, and more, Gnomon’s Visual Effects Animation curriculum offers students an in-depth skill set relevant to the demands of the industry.
