View Full Version : Need help doing some Lightwave Pass Rendering in Photoshop

06-01-2015, 08:00 AM
Hey guys,
I have been working recently on a project for some Tricaster sets
and I am REALLY not happy with the way I have been doing the pass rendering in the past few years.
Attached to the message are some WIP files.
I will show in more detail the passes I have been using when I get home.

Any help would be appreciated.

Roberto, I'm no expert but what stands out to me is the depth of field.
In shots 1,2, and 4 the desk is soft but the buildings outside the window are not much softer. Actually in the last shot the building across the street is sharper than the front of the desk.
I'd fade out the scenery a bit more. It should be enough to add interest with out offering distraction for the focal point.

The floor also seems brighter than the top of the desk. Which might be too bright. That is more of a personal taste thing. So, fair play either way.

My two cents.

Good Tips
I am adding DOF in post. I will try to see how the room look like with a darker floor. More soon.
