Yeah i would love to see it. I’ve been wanting to play with that to for a while already and just didn’t get around to it, so would love seeing how it looks.
We couldn’t get it to look right…either the image was too small/large (out of scale) or became grainy and out of focus in relation to the rendered building in front of it (a small garage). It’s for some marketing material so it’s got to be better quality than what we normally do and this ain’t it unfortunately.
Someone with more skill & time than I could probably make this work…I have a notion that using one of my transparent photoshop backgrounds would work since I could control scaling on that end. I might still make the attempt.
For now I’ll stick to photo-shopping backgrounds for exterior renders…I think I will be using the wall trick for interiors though!
Wanted to share this with you this is a wall background that is joined together in middle, applied pics and expanded the picture size and moved it together so it matched fairly well. I think you can still see it where it joins. but it turned out that the background is a little darker background than I wanted. Know one thing if you’re using actual pics you took at the job you should have a very high quality camera so you can blow up the pic and it doesn’t look to bad.
Yea the results are similar to what I got though your background is scaled much better. The issue I have is the disparity between the two…they’re clearly 2 different images. Renders have a certain ‘texture’ to them that just doesn’t sit well in front of real image background.
This isn’t such an issue for me with interior shots with the photo background through windows…but exterior renders just don’t blend well.
Attached is an old composite done with the house rendered in envisioneer but everything else is layered around it using photoshop…it’s more in line with what I’m after.
I’m thinking I can ‘build’ the backgrounds in photoshop and use them on the wall using your method for a more composite look…when I get some time I’ll try it.
