Nuke 12.2 (compositing), renders out of Maya

During this project, completed in May 2020, I learned about a completely new branch of compositing with animation under the guidance of Noah Catan, the lead compositor on the film. 

All 3 of these shots were completed within about a 2 week time period in which I learned many new pipeline and compositing techniques for 3D animation. 

The most important of these techniques was the use of cryptomatte selection and edge lighting to relight and recolor the scenes, which was my main job on this project.  By using cryptomatte, I was able to select specific objects in the scene without using rotos, which saved a lot of time and created really great results.  I did also use manual feathered rotos in larger areas such as where the sunlight appears to come in through the window.
