I had not spotted this yet, so, good to know!
Matte Painting is a big part of being a Compositor, as while the foreground of a VFX shot might be in 3D, it helps to save resources by making the background 2D. But, creating those backgrounds by photobashing images together can sometimes be quite a time consuming process, especially when you have to do a lot of maintenance to the image to get the Alpha clean and crispy. (Tree branches and leaves in particular are especially tricky!)
It would be phenomenal to have pre-made plates (moving or static) of pre-keyed/transparent mountains, trees, rocks, vegetation, city skylines, birds, etc., so it can be an easy drag-and-drop process for creators! Could be a great collection to add to the CreatorVault too!
Would be nice to have a sci-fi/superhero/fantasy categories
That does all the tropey(maybe some orginal) star wars/star trek/LOTR etc Vfx.
Very nice. I had to upvote bullet hits. Bullet hits are very common in the industry… especially in TV shows and films. I see there is nuclear blasts which is very, very cool and fun to do buuuuut… how many shots are you going to do with nuclear blasts? Bullet hits happen in almost every project. More please haha
Rain. It’s a devil to capture on film by itself and pure CGI never looks quite right for me. Something similar to the snow pack would be great, rain on glass would be lovely too.
More versions of snow. With different sizes of lenses, flakes, wind strength. A lens size between medium (now is too wide) and close (now is too close) is the reason I cant use the Library now, it just does not work with all the lens sizes in a scene. Smaller flakes prefirebaly, more wind/less wind options.
Glad to hear you are wanting to see more bullet hits. And I can tell you that you will not have to wait too long to see them!
We got you! You will not have to wait long at all.
And welcome to the community!!
Could we get snow buildup on windows? Or maybe impacting on windows?
