Software used:

Fig. 12

Rendering was done with scanline for all the layers except occlusion which was rendered in mental ray. For compositing I used After Effects (Fig .13). I divided the render into four passes for the foreground and four for the background:

  1. Beauty pass
  2. Direct light - since ambient occlusion should not appear in direct light, I used this layer as a mask.
  3. Ambient occlusion - aah, it makes so many renders prettier!
  4. Z depth channel - used for depth of field effect
  5. Mist - this layer was set to be very transparent in the composite; just some mist to better tie up the foreground and the background.
  6. Background trees beauty pass
  7. Z background depth channel - used for fog and depth of field effect
  8. Sky

Finally over all the layers I added some color correction and then popped back to Photoshop to do some small corrective repaints.

And here's the final image (Fig.14)! I hope you found this brief Making Of interesting. Thank you for reading and thanks to 3D Total for the Excellence Award!
