Feather Texturing

Recommended Posts

Yeah, that's pretty much the PS workflow too (or it would have been if I was doing it properly!).

  • "Is it something like this that you're after? This was just a quickie so it could use some work but I think you'll get the idea. Seems to be some dispute in this thread as to the correct way to go about this, so I shall call this 'just one way of skinning a cat'.

    Cheers Karl"

    Karl, no dispute in any way. It least is of coarse not my intention.

    And, for sure, several ways to skin a cat very much applies here. :)

    I felt pointing out that what kind of alpha does what should be seen as

    a hint to learn about premulti- and straight alphas whereabouts.

    They are different for a reason.

    Please let me show a simple comparison in the attached pictures.

    (I hope they show, I've never put anything up here afair..)

    My straight alpha attempts are pretty coarse but should at least tell

    how a premulti alpha can cutout parts the wrong way.

    Straight alphas can keep the pixel info better.

    Please compare the upper part of the feather.

    (The lower part could still have some minutes of added work).

    Cheers

    WOW what is straight alpha? How can make it in Cinema4d? Where do u use After Effects?

    Cinemo, with all respect, are you joking?

    This thread gives you all hints, directions and even step by step instructions.

    I see no need to repeat it all.

    Good luck!

    Cheers

    Lennart is right, read through the thread and it's practically a step by step guide.

    Love the way you all apologise for your English! You shouldn't - I'm amazed at how well most of you cope with a foreign language. It's us English and Americans who should be apologising for not learning some of your languages! We are so lazy! smile.gif

    Glad this has all helped.

    Cheers
