Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Including cliff details, part of Bert Monroy: Dreamscapes Volume 1.
Now in the last movie we added this terrain to the top of our tree trunk to make it look…like it's a plateau.…Now taking that away we see that there is this really great cracks going through the…tree trunk. I'd like to bring some of those back so that they show through our terrain here.…So what I am going to do is I am going to go in here, and I am going to turn that off,…and I am going to make sure I'm in the layer of the trunk here, and I am going to go look at the channels.…I am going to look at the Red, the Green, and the Blue.…
Now the Green has nice detail going on this, nice and sharp, that's the one I want.…I am going to duplicate that layer to an Alpha Channel.…Now in this Alpha Channel here what I am going to do is I am going in there, and I am going…to invert it, Adjustments > Invert.…So now I see I got these nice white tones in there.…So I am going to go into my Levels, and I am going to start to darken my darks and lighten my lights.…You see how I am starting to get a really strong definition of all those little cracks…
