Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Fake environment lighting, part of Creating Flying Logos with After Effects and CINEMA 4D Lite.
- Whenever I combine 3D objects with 2D video I like to…somehow hide that they came from different worlds.…Now what we have here is a very interesting…animated lighted background.…But none of that lighting shows up on our 3D object.…That's because they are from 2 different worlds.…2D video in After Effects 3D renderance CINEMA 4D.…However, it is possible to fake interaction…between these two different worlds.…Namely, to use this video as an additional lighting effect…of the materials for this logo.…
Let me show you this quick and dirty technique.…I'm going to switch back to CINEMA 4D Lite and open up the…material editor for my main purple color that I had here.…You notice that it has an additional channel…known as environment.…What I'm going to do is select that environment channel.…Then I'm going to load a texture to use…for that environment.…Namely, I'm going to load the background video that's…in the sources folder that came with your exercise files.…I'll click open. I'll get a little message from CINEMA…
