I love Blender…but I don’t use it for compositing.
I know, “Sacrilege!!!” I hear you cry. “How can you not use it for your comping?!” Well, because, I still think there are better options out there. However, I’m not one to look a gift-horse in the mouth without counting it’s teeth. Especially when the teeth can do lens distortion, chromatic aberration, glows, glints, bokeh depth of field and a host of other things that you can pump out of the render layers and into the final composite.
So this tutorial looks into the ways to take a simple render and make it into a more beautiful piece by adding some of the things mentioned above and showing how to combine them to get a pleasing result.
Take a look at the video below to find out more. Better still, subscribe to the channel and you’ll see a new one of these every week. Sometimes a “One by One” where we talk about what each part of blender does – at the moment we are concentrating on modifiers – other times tutorials on specific things or quick tips to make your life easier.
You want to see something not here? Then let me know in the comments. I’m always keen to help out where I can.
Take care and stay safe.
