Post - Production

With the final render ready, I went into Photoshop to do some post processing work on the image. I decided that I needed to somehow select the spider from the scene, and so to do this I rendered a ZDepth channel which created focus on the spider (Fig.45).

For the smoke in the scene, I created it with FumeFX and applied it above the basic layer in Multiply blending mode (Fig.46 - also see Movie.01). I also did some colour correction and used a glow effect to make the image not too bright and a little more washed out. Finally, I used a vignetting effect and chromatic aberration to make the picture look more realistic and believable (Fig.47 - 49). And there you have it, the Spider image was complete. Thanks for reading!
