I am 3D animator and now I also want to start to learn about composting.

I was searching about some softwares and I found two types: node based and layer based.

I don't know which once is better.

I would like to know your opinion.

It seems that node based softwares gives more possibilities but I am afraid it can be more difficult for a beginning.

If you pretend to use compositing for cinema or movie with high definition I suggest softwares like nuke, but if it's just for advertising and web, after effects should solve all your wishes...


Hope help you with that, but this choices also depend of your market, contacts and plans..

Believe it or not, this is the fundamental difference between layer-based and node-based compositing. Layer-based compositing places layers of video on top of each other. The key advantage of doing things this way is that your software begins to look like your NLE. There’s a timeline, with each video on its own track, and so on.
