Join Lee Lanier for an in-depth discussion in this video Relighting in the composition, part of VFX Techniques: Crowd Replication with After Effects.
We spent some time color grading the crowd, both individual groups of people, and also…certain areas like clothing and hair. We can now move on to the entire scene.…If we color grade the entire scene, we can even relight,…in other words, change the color of the light in certain areas.…For example, in this scene if I want to really make it look like there is sunlight coming…from the left side, I can create the illusion of sunbeams coming in from and external area.…To make that pop out even more, I can darken the right side and the lower side and even…tint that an opposite color like blue.…
So how do we do that? We can take this composition and nest it.…If we nest it more than one time, say twice, we can have each nested layer take on a different color.…For instance, one layer will be the warmer color and one layer will be the bluer color.…So let's give that a try. Composition > New Composition.…Call this Color Grade, click OK, and go out of that window.…I'll nest AddCrowd into this twice.…The lower layer will become the warmer layer for the sunlight, and the upper layer will…
