What´s your experience in the VFX world? (0-10)

I’d say a 5/10. I’m a very broad generalist. I have used most software in the CG pipeline at some point, but nowadays mostly use After Effects, Cinema 4D, and Houdini. My experience is more on the side of keyframe animation and creating simulations and texturing/rendering 3D scenes. I’ve installed and opened Nuke a few times, but never had time to get into it. 3D compositing is new to me – I’ve only done compositing in After Effects and Da Vinci Resolve (Fusion).

I’ve been watching Flame tutorials on and off for the past few months, learning the basics and researching the plugin ecosystem. It’s my first time looking at Boris FX plug-ins in-depth. The main things I need help with at the moment are:

  1. Understanding Flame’s interface for CG compositing
  2. Assessing the pros and cons of particular workflows for specific used cases.
  3. Assessing the current state of the art by examining tool and plug-in ecosystem around Flame.

Many tools have redundant/overlapping features, so having an up-to-date professional to talk to would help me get a better sense of what the current state of the art is, without having to read all the documentation and test out tools myself and make comparisons based off of 2-year-old YouTube tutorials. I need some insights that could help me understand which use cases are viable with Flame native tools versus plug-ins, such as Boris FX (silhouette[ml retimer, ez mask, ml assist, stability, etc], mocha, synth eyes), Neat, Timewarp ML, Frischluft Lens Care.

It would also be a bonus if you know smoke classic hotkeys.

Well, it’s not a dealbreaker. Basically, if I have something to learn from you and the rate is within my budget, then I would definitely be interested. I have hired tutors to help me with pretty much every software out there and even after I have gained all their powers we tend to stay in touch for years and refer each other jobs. A lot of sessions were even more like a study group in that they were learning just as much alongside me. I still find value in watching tutors fumbling around and doing Google searches because that’s part of the process. I like to think I am a pretty laid-back client offering an easy gig – every review I’ve given on tutors I hired on Upwork has been a perfect score feedback.

Wise choice for smoke keys.

I know there’ll be loads of indignant flame ops but in my humble opinion, it’s just so easy to edit with smoke classic. There are trade offs like undo and save but it’s worth it.


I don’t know enough about Flame to develop a strong opinion, but smoke classic hot keys just fit with my particular keyboard set up and background.

Smoke Classic def is a good choice when right handed, as most shortcuts are on the left keyboard side, so you use them without moving to much or colliding with the tablet hand.
