Midweek Motivation: Age Reduction VFX – NUKE, Mocha Pro
Digital Compositor and Beauty artist Rousselos Aravantinos is at it again with another amazing age reduction visual effects demo, created with NUKE and Mocha Pro.
This time I experimented with new techniques. The goal was to preserve more fine details of the skin texture, but also not to alter the face dramatically. There are still areas needing finer retouch though! I am studying anatomy to maximize realism! Watch it at 4K!
Aravantinos used NUKE and Mocha Pro for this demo.
We highlighted Aravntinos’ 1st age reduction test in NUKE about 3 years ago. View it here, and see how he has improved.
mocha pro has the ability to track even the toughest and most problematic shots, even following objects that go off screen, become obscured by another object, or lose focus, because it tracks “pixel patterns”, not points. This same mocha technology that powers our products is also authorized our technology partners. Learn More
