Snowy Mountains - Matte Painting, Janine Pauke (2D)



Title: Snowy Mountains - Matte Painting
Name: Janine Pauke
Country: United Kingdom
Software: Photoshop

A 2.5D matte painting (projected onto 3D geometry). I created the image in Photoshop by combining several photos and painting in extra details. After this I used CINEMA 4D to map it onto 3D geometry so I could animate it.
I also wrote a tutorial about this here. With lots of screenshots, wireframes, project files and two example animations. :)

Thumbs up Very khewl! It's just so easy in C4D!

If you use the shadowcatcher plugin from Matt Savard( http://www.plugincafe.com/download_...400150857SHAD03 ) you're
able to use shadows in your matte!

Thanks for the tutorial!


Cheers, Daniel

Hi Daniel,

never tried that shadowcatcher plugin... But have you tried the compositing tag? If you assign one to your geometry and use the "compositing background" option you can have shadows as well (which is what I did).

Will have a look at that plugin as well though, might be a quicker solution.

When you use the shadowchannel over a color ramp you're able to fine tune your shadows.
I think it's the most convinient way . . .
The easiest thing is surely, when you paint in the shadows for static objects.

Cheers, Daniel

Smile Snowy Mountains

This is a very good work. You have captured the sense of isolation. Can almost feel the wind.
