Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding fog, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
In this very important chapter, we are going to look at adding finishing…touches to our project.…So, first up, we are going to look at something called fog, which may not seem…like it comes in handy, but it really does.…In this example, we have red fog in the back, which creates this illusion that…these objects are receding into the distance.…If we hop on over to the Fog START comp, we don't see that, and that really…prevents the composite from being believable here.…Now, let's quickly go over to the landscape comp, where we have a real world…photo; we could understand what this Fog idea means.…
In the real world--like if I was going to talk to my mom and say hey mom, "what's fog?"--…she would think that it means kind of like that smokiness. And, it's not really…the smokiness that we talked about when we're working with fog in compositing.…It's really this attribute of real-world environments that creates this blend of…the sky tone with tones in the background, as they get farther away.…For example, if we look at the Info panel here--while I drag my cursor around…
