Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Easygoing overview on S1 comping The trouble with doing tutorials on things that you know by heart is that you sometimes lose focus. Here, the presenter shows a neat workflow for "comping" a (very electronic sounding) beat from several renders out of the metronome tool - and completely ignores that he has the "play click" still active, which turns the result of his comps into something different to what he had in mind ... but that's really more on the funny side, overall this mini-series is a nice, easygoing recap of the main ideas for "brute force comping". What is missing is the finesse a real "compositing workflow" would introduce, but the comping tool in S1 currently just isn't that sophisticated. It would not be fair to miscredit this tutorial with the lack of features the documented tool shows.
