Dramatic Lighting Effects Using Depth Maps

Learn How Convert a 2D Image Into a Dramatic 3D Scene with Depth Maps

In this newest project you will see a perhaps underutilized feature called Depth Maps. While I have played with these depth maps before here on MFX Training as part of another project I thought this time around we would focus on creating the depth map effect itself. Follow along as I take a simple 2D texture shot in middle of day into dramatic underground scene with custom 3D lighting. Whether you are a photographer or a designer you will see yet again you can do much more with 3D than you might think!

What you will learn:

• Set Up 2D Image for 3D
• Edit Materials for Specific Look
• Lighting Effects
• Bonus Tips & Tricks
