See the render below. I have two questions:
1- Can I make the scene fade out to black? I want it to fade when the fence is almost gone and the end of the grass is visible. The problem with mist is that when I zoom closer to the house, the mist zooms farther out. I guess I could animate the mist, but I don’t know how to do that. (maybe have an empty control the start of the mist?) I also want the sky to fade up from black- just a little. Right now (you might be able to see it) the world panorama texture is showing below the horizon too. I guess I could just fade it in the actual image texture. I might just do that…
2- My scene is shot in the night. Do you have any suggestions for my lighting right now? The movie is supposed to be somewhat mysterious and it gets kinda supernatural towards the end. I tried to make the sky fit with that, but I was wondering what you guys think about it.
Actually, I really have three questions. Is there a way to optimize the grass rendering? Without grass, it renders in 6 sec. With is 1 min 10. I am trying to keep rendering time about a minute- and I still have some trees to add.
Any suggestions are welcome as well.
