Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Simulating lights, part of Learning Tiffen Dfx.
- Besides influencing the existing lighting conditions,…you'll find several virtual lights inside of Dfx.…These can simulate lights that you…maybe didn't have while shooting.…An easy one is the Eye Light.…The Eye Light essentially creates a virtual light…that will go over the subject's eyes.…Let's view the matte here intially…by taking a look at the light.…You see it's naturally shaped to match sort of like a mask.…
The DVE controls down here allow you to adjust the scaling.…And if needed you can control the horizontal and vertical…independently by unchecking Gang.…Let's switch this back to the output…and place that over our subject's face.…It's a bit strong here.…I'll take that down to screen.…And dial in a lower amount with a heavier blur.…
You can also use a brightness slider here…to emphasize the shadows.…In this case you see that it's creating new shadows…around our subject and re-lighting the face.…Sometimes pulling down the brightness of the scene…by adding some shadows in is a nice balance.…If we turn that on and off you see that in a way,…
