Engineer Jem Stansfield looks back through the Horizon archives to find out how scientists have come to understand and manipulate the materials that built the modern world. Whether it's uncovering new materials or finding fresh uses for those we've known about for centuries, each breakthrough offers a tantalising glimpse of the holy grail of materials science - a substance that's cheap to produce and has the potential to change our world. Jem explores how a series of extraordinary advances have done just that - from superconductors to the silicon revolution.

Genre: Video Training

In this course we will learn how to get started using the compositing software Fusion. Using Fusion we can quickly composite and create visual effects using a node-based workflow which allows us to easily tweak any part of the composition. We'll begin this project by learning the basics of importing images and moving around in the Fusion user interface. We'll then cover some basic compositing, masking, transforming, and color correction. We'll finish with a project to composite a 3d render and create an interesting animated wipe and render it into an image sequence. This series of lessons is a great starting point to learning Fusion. By learning the basics and tool-based workflow of Fusion, we will be able to create appealing animations and images.
