Underwater compositing

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, September 2, 2015, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

As you all know, I've covered this topic quite extensively, but after the Anime Style Sea tutorials, I asked GOD what HE wanted me to do next and quite a few videos resulted, but this one is the only full tutorial that resulted so far:


(I think the thumbnail says it all, hahaha)

I have been working on an underwater result in compositing and design for quite some time and only this year really got the look down when GOD had me write a few posts on the various elements it takes to make th...

Underwater Compositing - Softness

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, February 9, 2015, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey all!!

Today we cover the last in the series on underwater compositing! There may still come future posts on certain features that still apply, but as far as compositing goes for a basic underwater scene, we're ending today :D.

As you've seen, we're covering softness today. While this is not always required, there is a certain presence to water that to most often presents itself as a softness. You'll find it even out of water in very humid conditions, but really makes most underwater scenes ...

Underwater compositing - Mist

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, January 28, 2015, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey all!

Been a while since the last post, but this one is something I've learned a little bit on, so I hope this helps you tons! :D

Just think of a misty day. You can only see so far. Depending on the kind of water you are in, you will have varying decrees of clarity.

BUT! This is not a white mist. Ther...

Underwater compositing - Brightest boost

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, December 11, 2014, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey all!

Now we're on to part two of the series on underwater compositing. Obviously, I'm no expert at this, but what I do know I do like to share, so I hope you find this helpful.

Personally, I used Blender Render a lot. It is the old render engine in Blender and it does not support caustic light. I remember when I started out with Blender, I really really tried to figure out how to make it make that light, but nothing, haha.

In compositing, you have, in situations like Blender, values that go ...

Underwater compositing - Color fringe

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, December 3, 2014, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey all!

Today I want to share a little trick with you that GOD taught me on compositing for underwater. Now, granted, this may not be anything new to you, as you may have done something along these lines before using the lens distortion node, but using lens distortion has some draw backs which is why GOD taught me this method.

Problems with using the lens distortion node:
- Firstly, it is a great node and it's very useful for adding that special imperfection to a render, but its dispersion is n...

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen." Revelation 22:18-21
