Fi­nal ef­fects part 2

3D World - - TUTORIALS -

Next I play around with over­all colour cor­rec­tions us­ing Color Bal­ance, Ex­po­sure and Color Lookup. I find that work­ing with high-res im­ages leaves as much range as pos­si­ble for me to crunch through in this phase. Rais­ing the ex­po­sure for ex­am­ple can make the im­age seem more pho­to­re­al­is­tic even if we blast out the whites. I also tend to give the im­age a warmer tone in the high­lights and a cooler one in the shad­ows us­ing the Color Bal­ance ad­just­ment layer. And fi­nally I like to use the Color Lookup ad­just­ment layer to em­u­late the var­i­ous film stocks but leave the opac­ity very low around 10-15%.
