    RetouchPRO LIVE - Compositing Critique 2
    Guest Artist: Dennis Dunbar

    Dennis Dunbar is a Los Angeles-based compositor, retoucher and author specializing in advertising and entertainment. You've seen his work on movie posters for movies like Star Trek, Harry Potter, and X-Men.

    On our previous RetouchPRO LIVE with Dennis, we ran out of time and weren't able to finish with his compositing critiques. We promised we'd have a Part 2 so everyone would have their chance for mentoring from Dennis.

    So here's your chance to have your compositing work examined by one of the most in-demand compositors in the industry.

    If you'd like your work critiqued, upload your layered PSD file (he needs to see the layers to judge your technique, but 300MB max). Do not upload anything you're uncomfortable with being seen by thousands of people, or that a client wouldn't like being seen. All files will be deleted after the show, but the Youtube recording will live forever.

    Even if you don't want to upload, be sure to join us anyway to see lots of interesting compositing work and many, many, (many) compositing techiques demonstrated and explained.

        Thanks for a really interesting and informative show. After viewing this show I went back and looked at the First Photo composite show Dennis did some weeks ago and some of Dennis's other shows - well worth the time!

          Thanks so much for this and previous you tube videos. I really appreciate the effort and information.


          I recently have been working with blend-if layers and have something to share...see attached.


          There are many reasons to use blend-if. While we can see the results, we can only imagine what the underlying created mask looks like....except it is actually quite easy to obtain the mask as a channel layer; much like any other selection saved as a mask in channels.


          After contacting Adobe and finding an answer on "how to" get the blend-if mask, I also found a .atn file that extracts the mask and saves it as a channel....easy peasy. With the blend-if layer selected, run the action...find the mask in the channel layers.
          The .atn was written by Stephan Marsh years ago and it works in CC2015 x64 as well as back to probably Ps6. See attached .atn file.
          Happy masking!
