Everybody knows the movie "The Martian" directed by Ridley Scott and most of us can be totally agree that VFX from the the are really great. I was learning the Maya nFluids and I did a lot of tests and exercises to understand the how it works. To end with the training I recreate three scenes From "The Martian". I was responsible for all aspects in this project but the main thing was the rocket trail. I did a matte painting the most accurate to the movie and then I projected it in Nuke X to get the parallax effect.
It was a fun project but all of us should stop to save the damn Matt Damon! Just kidding
