Complete compositing to create elements for the 3-D and digital effects environment

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Elements and Performance Criteria



Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Confirm the compositing requirements

1.1 Undertake consultations with the client to develop the compositing brief

1.2 Plan and schedule the compositing work

1.3 Identify the appropriate software tools, equipment and media for compositing work

1.4 Consult with the relevant personnel in regard to the technical aspects of the proposed compositing

1.5 Confirm the compositing requirements with the client prior to work commencement

2. Prepare the elements for compositing

2.1 Select the resolution and aspect ratio for final composited output

2.2 Create the digitised elements through non-digital means

2.3 Identify and obtain the source plates or layers, images and other elements for compositing

2.4 Modify or repair elements that are problematic, or inconsistent, with the desired outcomes

2.5 Undertake the colour correction of plates and elements

2.6 Create additional elements, where required

2.7 Generate mattes

3. Composite images to achieve an integrated result

3.1 Track and stabilise the images to be composited

3.2 Match cameras, lighting and shadows, and add motion blur, as required, to finalise the composite

3.3 Integrate the plates, layers or elements in the correct sequence, using compositing software

3.4 Incorporate the grain, where required

3.5 Present the test composites to the client for approval

4. Render the composited images and save files

4.1 Optimise the composited images for rendering

4.2 Undertake the rendering process using efficient levels of resources

4.3 Store or archive rendered files in the specified output format

4.4 Review the completed render, to ensure quality and compliance with system requirements and the client brief

5. Present the composite to the client for final approval

5.1 Present the final composited images for client approval

5.2 Make adjustments to composited images, where required, to meet client requirements
