Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video The CastleAll layer, part of Digital Matte Painting Essentials 5: Camera Projection in Maya.
…You need one more file that has the entire castle and background combined,…and you should open up your finished…textured castle from the texture exercise files.…You want the castle without the stretched bottoms of the…layers so you can accurately place your geometry in Maya.…The one layer would be useful to turn off in this project is the Smoke layer.…It makes it hard to see where the bridge front is intersecting the water.…With that turned off, select all, copy merged, make a new document.…
Make the document eight bit; remember, Maya doesn't like 16 bit files.…And paste it into the new file.…Flatten the image, name it CastleAll, save it as…a JPEG and set the quality somewhere around eight.…The…one last thing you should check is that none…of your layers is much larger than the others.…If one of these images is over 30 megabytes, it…indicates that you've accidentally saved it with all the layers.…And it won't work in Maya.…
The largest file will be sky and water,…since it has pixels everywhere on the layer.…
