Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting the Ambient Occlusion element, part of Rendering for Composites inside 3ds Max.
- Having worked with the State Set and Render Element tools…in 3ds Max to get our footage both rendered…and into After Effects, time in this final chapter…to demonstrate albeit in a limited way,…the opportunities for postproduction editing…that our workflow has opened up for us.…In fact, the first thing I want to do here…is make a quick alteration to the way in which 3ds Max…has composited our Ambient Occlusion element.…Now, whilst this exercise isn't perhaps (laughs) essential,…keeping an eye on even small details in a render…can sometimes mean the difference…between success and failure.…
To see what it is that (laughs) I'm talking about…with the 05_01_Start.aep After Effects project…that we created at the conclusion of the previous chapter…opened up, let's jump into the Elements comp…and set the timeline here to around about frame 195.…Now, if I just turn most of the Enabled Layers off…for the moment, leaving just the lighting…and Ambient Occlusion options visible,…if I then flick the Ambient Occlusion layer…
