Join Dariush Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video Back to beauty: Assembling the render, part of Learning V-Ray for Maya: A Professional Reference Guide.
In this video we'll be taking a look at how to take VRay Render elements and put…them together in composite using After Effects to bring the image back to beauty.…We have a scene here with some simple objects set up with a couple of lights.…This light is on a beach ball to give a subsurface scatter effect, and we have a…simple light bulb within this lamp to give us a Self Illumination Effect.…
We have a glass ball to give us a refraction, and the beach ball has…subsurface to give us that element as well.…The theory behind a back to beauty composite is that a Simple Render pass…should get you back to beauty when you take lighting Plus Global Illumination.…Plus Reflection, plus Spec, plus Sub Surface Scattering, plus Self Illumination.…
These passes when added to each other correctly in composite should return All…the passes to the original beauty render. Using these passes and combining them to…get back to beauty, allows the compositor or lighter to control the final image…without having to do any new renders. In this sample, we see the Render passes…
