Venom VFX Case Study with Allan McKay – Film School

Going behind the scenes on the visual effects for the movie Venom, discussing the VFX for the film, not as an artist but as a VFX Supervisor.

Quick heads up: The ‘unedited version’ of this is located at https://vimeo.com/306717260

I’ll be playing with the format as more of these go up!

WHAT I NEED FROM YOU: Please leave a comment let me know what films you want to see next. Personally I am leaning toward Kong or Avengers: Infinity War — but I would love to get some insights from you on your favorite Marvel, sci-fi or Creature FX films! Or any others for that matter!

I think this will be fun to go behind the scenes on the discussion and I’m happy to disclose tools or techniques, and even create supporting 3d tutorials and compositing tutorials on specific shots.

This is a deep dive into deconstructing individual FX sequences and shots and the techniques and approaches used. Rather than focusing specifically on creating the CG elements as a 3DS Max tutorial, Houdini, Maya, Nuke or After Effects, we’re more focused on what matters — which is the process and though that goes into these shots and a look behind the curtain at many key insights needed for making these shots come to life.

Hi Allan, thanks for the great tutorial! One thing I had trouble with was when you set Particle Group to 1, it seemed to disable ground collision, and physX collisions. I assume I have to choose the particle group every time, but I don't see you doing that in this tutorial. Maybe this is new to later Tyflow?
