View Full Version : Realistic atmosphere render

10 October 2009, 09:34 AM
Hey. First of all i'm not sure that this is the right forum that i posted on.

I'm working on an airplane and i'm doing the Shading and lightning atm.
I was wondering how you get that photo realistic feel to it. If you look at a photo it seems a bit grainy or like there's a thin dust layer on top of the objects in the scene. Do you do it in the materials, in photoshop/aftereffects or do you use something like volume fog? Or something completely different?

I'm using 3ds max 2009.

Thanks for the help, and once again i'm sorry if it's the wrong forum that i posted on.

Two ways you could do that I can think of.

1.) Render the image. Pull it into Photoshop and add a grain filter to it.

2.) Use film grain process in the Video Post processing in 3DS Max

I know there are other ways of doing this, but I think these two are probably the easiest to use.

I'm confused, are you wanting to create a realistic scene or a realistic photograph? Two different things...
