Why is it so ugly ?..
on Feb 14, 2020 at 8:51:51 pm

Hi every one,
I'm new here, I used to find solution of my problems by myself or by searching on the internet, but for this time I'm stuck.
I'm kind of a newbie with after effects, a month and a half that I'm on it, so I'm pretty familiar with the UI, and some effects, but on this one I'm feeling lost. It's element 3D, I created an object with it, I applied a texture on it, gold texture from pro shader, put it in the middle of my 3D environnement wich is a 3D earth made of particles from trapecode form. On the scene setup, the object looks nice ( exactly how I want it), but once I have it in my composition it doesn't look at all as in the scene setup.
I will link some picture.

The first two ones are with and without depth of field, the others show the element 3D scene setup.

What can I tweak to get the same results as in the scene setup ? I already tweaked the physical environment in the render settings section, could make it less cold but couldn't make the relief/texture and mirror effects to look like the scene setup one.

Any idea ?

Things that can affect Element in the composition compared to scene up: Lights, Environment, environment influence, ambient occlusion settings, glow settings, layer transfer mode.

Take a look at each of these and see if that helps. - Free FX for amateur films - FX blog
