Are you struggling to get your CGI renderings to look like if they were taken with a camera? Use this collection to add a photographic look!
Check out the bundle to save money and get extras on top: https://www.artstation.com/a/21014933
Probably one of the reasons is that your rendering lacks the contrast that we are used to seeing in photography! Just use one of the photographic LUTs or V-Ray VFB Presets from this collection to add a photographic touch!
Wait! There is more: HD and 10k Film Grain overlay images (with and without color) and a Photoshop file with which you can do non-desctrubale tonemapping to then apply an LUT in 32-bit mode.
This collection is full of photographic LUTs for your individual rendering. No rendering is like another, so choose the base brightness and contrast and try out one of the 6 LUTs from each base – and if you like, choose a warm, cold or Teal and Orange variation to add some more color or drama. 158 LUTs in total! Base categories: Flat, Balanced, Bright, Dark, Contrasty & Log.
Check out my tutorial on my Youtube Channel for more information on how to treat your renderings like photos.
Test the free LUTs and V-Ray VFB Presets from this pack: https://www.artstation.com/a/20567550
Make your lens effects stylized, realistic and unique by using one of the two 32bit filter images included in this collection!
If you are using V-Ray, you can also use one of the seven Vray 5/6 VFB Presets in this pack to make things even more easy: Just load the preset, reconnect the LUT and you are done!
With an Exposure Layer with Highlight Burn and the LUT loaded in, your rendering should look already amazing on the contrast side. You can also use the presets that don't use an LUT and Curves etc. instead, so you have total control.
You can also use the zeroLutVFB.cube to bring your 32bit linear rendering into log-space (just click "Work in log" in the LookupTable layer) and save it out e.g. as a TIF file so you can then edit it in your photoediting software of choice or add your LUT of your choice on top straight in the VFB!
I am planning on adding more presets and styles for Capture One and Lightroom so you can just launch your favorite software to edit your awesome renderings and give them the contrast kick they deserve.
I added 20 V-Ray Lens Files for realistic lens distortion for even more way to make your renderings photographic - more vrlens files coming in the near future!
