here is little “behind the scene” video of a research project…
from this concept matte painting
the goal is to good and simple way to create matte painting for differents stereo 3d projects…
for research i´ve made a research for generating 3d-tree´s in a compostingsoftware like nuke. i have compine classic game-3d-multiplane with nuke 3d-displacements nodes and for tree wind motion i had used a default grid wrap node.
now i can build my “forest”-gizmo for easily generate a 3d-forest/tree “on the fly” in 3d compositings including a soft fake-trees-shadow and fast relighting/shading feature. the rendertime are not so good (3-4 sec per frame in PAL) i´ll want export the data to maya and renderman how can render the tree pass faster and more features like deep shadows.
and this here is orginal “source” image….
here another wip from my research-project…this (6K x 4k) 3d-matte painting and includes:
-one 2D animated matte paint (10k x 2k)
-one 2D still matte paint.
-five 3D rendered animated waterfall texture (2k x 1K)
-two real footage animated water-texture
there are lots of displaced objects in the 3d-space of nuke and workflow is still fast !
here is quick test for concept 3d-matte painting…
the concept-painting was created by a great artist at softmachine, my job was to transform the painting into 3d and add the waterfall in the background.
i´ve created a little mask for the painting and projected and displaced it on a plane with
nuke´s 3d-features to create a more dynamic 3d-feeling picture in the camera movement.
the waterfall created in 10 mintes with default-settings of my dynamic-scripts (maya and renderman).
and here the lowres video:
here is behind the scene of the stereo comp:
here ia another wip… a screeshot form the squence in nuke. its a 3d-composting, the plan to get a nice moving camera.. its a nice project to level up my skills of the 3d-features in nuke…
anyway, animated displaced surfaces in nuke are rocks !
here is a quick preview video
this is a test composing animated elements with a mattepainting…
complete done in shake. picture taken from random place.
main background was shot in switzerland.
