About our full course Matching Live Action with CG using Mental Ray:

A 5 week part time project based approach to blending a photorealistic CG output using Mental Ray with a live action plate.


The most challenging of all CG work is to blend a Computer Generated output onto a live background. Most of the work in the Visual Effects industry is centered around this.

This is one of the key areas which remain unaddressed by most instructors. Furthermore, international instructors and online courses are unable to successfully address the singularly unique issues faced by Indian studios.

The use of Mental Ray in India has mostly been "push button." We try to go into the depths of it so you can also solve problems.
