Title: CONSULTATION: Needed an expert in Photoshop
Post by: Nico RVArq.com on March 28, 2012, 06:21:39 pm
I wish I could emulate this effect of lighting over materials.
I tried with diffuse glow but I have not got interesting results.
Someone could specify how to get it in Photoshop or After Effects Pleeeeeease  :-D :-D
The pictures are from CryENGINE
(function HDR dynamic power factor Eye Adaptation & High Dynamic Range (HDR) Lighting"),

I thank you in advance.
And sorry for insisting with pictures and references of the competition.

Can you be more specific? What is it that you like?
In those examples the nicest part of the effect for me was caused by the complexion of the model and the sun/light/camera position.

If you mean for video then with PS you can prebake your materials and lights for certain situations/scenes as well as create difuse, specular like, bump like maps for second slot materials...ajust the offsets etc..etc...all the stuff you already know.

On materials the reflections and the bloom or glow, streaks etc....etc... are left for you to emulate with the current effects and material tools....

I wish there was just a big button I could push....can't find it!.. :-D

Why not do it directly in Lumion or am I missing the point here (wouldn't be the 1st time!)?

Below some quick examples of how you can drive specular bloom with nothing but the sun
height&rotation in conjunction with the lensflare effect (once you have the other effects to
tone your scene put in place). This way it's fairly easy to make adjustments.

1ST OF ALL, THANKS SO MUCH TO BOTH OF YOU.
Dazo teach to make it in Photoshop and Aaron, has shown me that I have not yet experienced enough with Lumion, because the result you've traced, thank you very much. I hang up the fastest option to play and experiment with the second. Greetings.

Create a hot spot on a new layer - then give it diffuse glow.

Try these too - bring them in and use "screen" blending mode.

Aaron you have so much right. Directly from Lumion with Lens Flare Effect, nr 17 is for me the most beautiful resoults. Thanks again.
Blinking a bit, though. See the video.

Very nice Nico!
Is the flickering caused by the camera
moving relatively quickly?

I don´t think so, it seems caused by the lens flare.  :-\

Ooh? How crappy is that :(
I'll do a few tests tonight to see if I can find anything to make it go away  :-r
