Re: RetouchPRO LIVE "Atmospherics" w/Scott Valenti

Hi folks - I will put up a mini tutorial on the underwater effect that closed the show. This will cover building the top surface, floor lighting and dealing with the density differences between water and air as far as light is concerned.

Are there any requests for more details on some of the other effects?

Hey Scott!
I enjoyed the rebroadcast of your show yesterday. I have been trying my hand at making rain and I got a little bit confused when I went back to my notes. Did you say to use BOTH Messotint AND Pointilizze or just one or the other?

Glad you enjoyed it!

The steps I usually follow for rain are:

Noise
Pointilize
Threshold
Mezzotint

Note that this is only one way to get there; the important part is to end up with some small, fairly well-spaced and hard-edged globs of pixels. One alternative to this somewhat randomized method is to use a spatter brush that will lay down pixels where you want. Then you can use Mezzotint or straight to motion blur.

The advantage to the brush method is you can choose your rain density, which would be good for producing some splash in a local area, say along a waterfall.

One more thing - I think I used Dots in the video for the Mezzotint settings, but try Long Strokes instead. This will give you more variation in the rain drops. You can also run Threshold again (followed by more blur) if you need to thin out the number of drops.

Great tips! I will give those a try. I also look forward to seeing your mini tutorial on the underwater effect that closed the show, when you get that put up. Thanks again,

Dak
