Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Tweaking the reflections, part of 3ds Max: Rendering for Composites.
- One of the things that we will more than likely…always want to tweak before committing to any final renders,…are the reflections that show up in the…glossy materials that we have added to our scenes.…And of course, in this particular sequence,…we do have plenty of those.…Perhaps the most obvious way in which we can control…our reflections inside After Effects,…is by means of the Layer Opacity control.…To show this in action let's make certain we are inside…one of the duplicated Lighting and Diffuse comps.…
Open up the controls, find the reflection layer,…and then set the Opacity level to something like 50%.…This is we instantly see halves the intensity…of our reflections.…And of course, if we set this to zero,…we effectively turn the reflections off altogether.…Let's suppose though, that we have examined our shot…and have decided that we want to strengthen…or punch the reflections a little.…Well we have no need to go back into 3ds Max of course,…because our use of render elements has made it possible…for us to perform any such tweaks to the sequence…
