Chapter 21. Compositing > Composition Strategies

Composition Strategies

Even when high-end compositing hasn't been specified into the production pipeline, it can sometimes be a real boon to the entire process. For simple scenes there isn't much benefit, but complex shots can make the following approach shine.

The basic idea is simple: Render in layers according to the distance from the camera. The background might be a layer. The midground, characters, and props could all have their own separate rendering file. Note that these groupings are different from the layers in 3ds max itself; however, layers can be a great organizational tool.
