Unleashing the Raw Power of Capture NX.

Using the critically acclaimed “Why to of How” approach pioneered in the Welcome To Oz: Following the RGB Road series, Vincent takes a look under the hood of Capure NX.  This multi-DVD tutorial goes for the basics of how Capture NX is set up and works through advanced workflows of several of his most iconic images.  In each lesson, Vincent will take you through how he created, or recreated in Capture NX, each image.  In every lesson the viewer will be using the actual raw file that came off the camera, not a low resolution JPEG or TIFF.  This multi-DVD set is designed to get you up to speed with an understanding of both why and how to use the most powerful RAW processor on the market today.

This series was shot at 720p High Definition Resolution along with a computer screen capture set to record at computer resolution, so not only will you be able to see how Vincent actually works on his Cintq® interactive pen display, but also watch the tutorials on your television and play the lessons back on your computer at computer resolution as well.
