Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a blue Multiply layer, part of Digital Matte Painting: Changing a Scene From Summer to Winter.
With my new sky added, I want to turn this into a dusk scene, and I'm going…to do that by applying a layer of blue, in Multiply mode, over the top of the landscape.…I want to isolate the blue to only the area of the landscape, so I am going to…load in that layer mask I already created for the sky. And I'm going to need to…select the inverse of the selection, so I have the landscape selected instead of the sky.…I'm going to cleanup the selection by subtracting the mask layer, so I'm going…to Command+Option+Click, Ctrl+Alt+Click into the layer icon preview.…
I want to start a new layer above all the other painted layers but below the…mask layer, and then fill it with a dark but neutral blue.…I'm going to name the layer BlueMultiply and fill it full of that color, and…then set the Layer Transfer mode to Multiply.…I am going to dial back the Opacity of this layer to 80% so I can see it…a little bit better.…Now I want to add a dusk sky, because this bright cloudy sky won't work on the dusk version.…
