Week 45 – New look

posted in: Compositing | 2

Hello everyone!

Now that we can finally render the set (the textures and import script being done), Thomas is reworking our old shots. Although they weren’t that bad, they didn’t feel like it’s evening, as required by the story. Also, the storm effect wasn’t feeling menacing enough to our taste.

So here’s the first shot we showed you a while back with the new look. After that, you can see comparison shots between the old and the new look. Comments are welcomed!

For those who are wondering what’s going on with our screwed-up computer, well it will take a little longer that expected since the new piece we need is backorder. So we’re a little slower at rendering stuff there days but that should be fixed eventually.

Thanks for coming and see you soon!

Week 35 – Visual enhancements

posted in: Compositing, Textures | 2

Hey everyone!

We’re working harder than ever on the film and we’re very satisfied with the results! Sadly, we can’t show animation this time, as we would soon end up revealing the entire film, so here’s a few visual enhancements we did on the film this week.

We had a few comments about the set not being detailed enough compared to the rest of the film. It’s something that’s still being worked on.

Here’s a new pass done on the cliffs :

And the result on the rest of the canyon (still working on it) :

Comped shots are also being constantly enhanced. As soon as Thomas is waiting for a new render, he goes back to old shots to refine what we already have. Here’s shot 2 for instance, with a depth treatment that makes Steinn stand out much better.

Well, that’s it for this week! See you next wednesday night for new updates on Le Gouffre™ !
