Compositing 3D Renders in Toxik
In this series of lessons, we'll learn how to bring in multiple 3D render passes and composite them on a photograph using many tools and techniques. Software required: Toxik 2010 for project files.
In this series of lessons, we'll learn how to bring in multiple 3D render passes and composite them on a photograph using many tools and techniques. We'll begin this project by importing our layers and assembling them into a basic render of a car. We'll then learn how to create an advanced shadow using the Blend and Comp, Comp Alpha, Drop Shadow, Control Edge, and Lens Blur nodes. We'll then learn several compositing tricks to help us really blend the foreground and background, such as Reflection matching, Lightwraping, color correction, and grain matching. Throughout this training, we'll use the streams system to have single nodes affect multiple nodes to keep edits fast and simple. Software required: Toxik 2010 for project files.
