Natron 101: A pratical guide to node-based compositing (55 minute!) by Midge Sinnaeve


http://www.themantissa.net/blog/2015/5/5/natron-101 - Midge’s Blog

Srujan Raghavendra review: Mr. Midge Sinnaeve has made a beautiful introductory video about Natron which addresses many principal nodes and about combining passes and about vignette in Natron. Probably, this is the best introductory video about Natron. It is definitely far more specific and far more advanced than the video by Chander Ruzzi. I highly recommend every new entrant to Natron should watch this video. it explains many basic aspects of Natron very cleary. The approach is very practical.He shows us with a practical project. Do watch it.

Thanks Rod LongDesigner. - Still, Natron as one of Node-based compositing is a nice tool, but I haven’t have a chance to do deeper experiment or have a ‘case’ where I need this app. I will keep following this page though I’m less-active right now, but anyone can edit this (I have backup save of this document) and contribute any useful information to community.
