The “lazy” compositor

Use the “winner” HDRI from the previous article and render a car with “no” compositing effort.

The previous article was already a bit long, so I split it up into two parts. Here it now the second part. I go over the preparation of the footage, render a car model and place it in the plate.

Blender Cycles rendering and more or less a simple A over B in Nuke.
Resolve HDR trim pass of the same image. Really shows the “ping” in the specular highlights.
