SGO Mistika course June 2014



This course includes the latest tools from version SGO Mistika 8

Designed as a flexible high-end post production system Mistika is one of the most powerful finishing tools in the film, television and trans media industries.
Hollywood blockbusters like ”The Hobbit”, ”The Amazing Spiderman”, “Prometheus” “Star Trek Into Darkness”, “The Great Gatsby” and “The Adventures of Tintin” are just some titles featured in SGO Mistika showcase.

This course will cover both basic operation and advance user experience. It will emphasise the use of Mistika 8 in its key features: workflows, VFX, colour grading for DI and stereoscopy.

Students will learn how to operate this software, designed to handle extreme resolutions and multi directional workflows. With a hands-on teaching philosophy they will perform editing tasks, visual effects composition, footage restoration, colour grading and stereoscopy corrections.

The main goal is to learn SGO Mistika under the professional scope focusing not only in learning the theory, but the day-to-day work and the practice of case studies. Exercises that use several disciplines will encourage students to combine all their knowledge.

All the lessons will be in English language in Madrid, home of SGO Mistika headquarters.

    Hola Pepe, gracias por tu comentario, llevamos más de un año organizando cursos de Mistika en castellano 🙂

    Llevaremos más a cabo sin duda pero ahora le toca el turno al idioma anglosajón.

    Un saludo
