This may not be the right place for this, but the people I need to see it are here more than anywhere else as far as I know, so I apologize in advance if I’ve misplaced it, and please feel free to move it or remove it and let me know where to repost it, and I shall do so.
For the first time, I finally have a nice high end desktop tower, and have the opportunity to take proper high quality screen-shots. As such, I’m fairly un-educated about how to produce nice effects and such. What I’m here for, is guidance for one particular type of shot I wish to take, in the hope I can work it out for myself with other types (In other words, I don’t need a list of how to’s, just an example from which I can learn.). If it helps, My specs are here(though this isn’t a hardware discussion thread): Below is the project brief:
I have built a ship much like the ones in the Matrix films (here’s a stock screenshot). I want a nice set of shots that have the same ambience as in the tunnels through which they fly. I’m looking for anything which can give me the same feel that can be observed within the films. The main shots I’m looking for are as follows:
+ Two or three “action” shots, i.e. as if moving through a tunnel (I realise these will most likely be the hardest to achieve as a picture is still).
+ A shot as if it were hiding (This might be easier to understand if you’ve seen the movies).
+ A couple of shots of it at rest or at ease so to speak.
+ Spec shots - Top, Front, Right and Floating shots, without perspective or with parallel perspective if it’s possible.
Things I expect I’ll need or would like to utilise:
+ Post Processing Pixel Shaders:
-+ Colour Mod.
-+ Simple/Super Depth of Field.
-+ possibly the Pixel Render utility.
+ Maybe a custom map if anyone knows any suitable ones.
+ Any addon based enhancements that might be useful.
Finally, I’m looking to take the original screen-shots as PNGs or possibly something that can provide even greater quality (Don’t worry though, I shall only upload in a web suitable format). I also want to have as little post capture editing to do as I can, as I’ve found myself to be remarkably untalented with Photoshop, GIMP and similar image development software, thusly I want the source images to be as close to the final result as possible.
P.S. I was also wondering, are Dropbox gallery links permitted/advised on here?
