Day to Night Compositing Case Study


Ivan Hoffmann (digitalh) has made a case study on a great compositing technique for turning a day shot into a night shot - and he had to do the compositing work in a short amount of time.  For all you filmmakers out there, here's your chance to learn more about this very useful "Day to Night" technique!

Ivan Hoffmann writes:

Hi, I'm digitalh, former lead compositor for Plumiferos and actual partner in Licuadora Studio. I wrote a case study based on one shot from "Superagentes, Nueva Generación," the movie we worked on here at Licuadora Studio. It's a day to night effect, all composited with Blender, with some special patches made by Hernan Borghetti (bdiego).

Here's the link to the Blog's post.

Here are the direct links to the tutorial in English and in Spanish.

Hope you find it interesting.

  1. @Omar Modesto: Really? I just tried all the links and they work fine for me (not broken.) Thanks! :D

    @Billy: yes, I definitely want to learn how to do this. ;) It would be so useful for filmmaking...

  2. @Omar Modesto: What? No, I didn't go and fix any links on the article after what you wrote, but I did try them here on the post and they worked for me. Were they not working before? It doesn't really matter since they are working now, just wondering what you meant by your last comment. ;)

  3. Oh. Someone else must've fixed it before you checked it, then. The link URL was mixed with the URL for this post (not that it stopped me from checking the Licuadora site, of course).
