Animal Planet idents - Lighting
Posted 24 March 2012 - 05:43 PM
I absolutely love these idents of Animal Planet,
I've been doing my own project recently in Cinema but always struggle with lighting. The lighting in the idents above is amazing and I just wondered if anyone could give me a pointer in replicating it? Mostly the glare of the bright light that comes from the top right?

I worked on the idents doing 3D and compositing. Tezuka is definitely right. Most of the lighting is in post. We used physical sky in C4d and then just built on that with solids in after effects set to add, some mattes to give certain bits like the meerkats hill and a bit of a glow on the edges, things like that. We used a bit of shine for sun rays too. The grade adds much of the feel too.
Glad you liked them!

Sorry I've not been on for a while and only just saw the extra replies. Thanks so much for sharing how you did it, it's a really pleasing style and I wanted to do some experiments with it but just couldn't get anything looking right!
Crastro - That vid is awesome, a really nice feel to it!
