The hardest thing is getting the light from the lightsaber cast on my body. With a simple 'beam effect' in After Effect alone doesn't make it look realistic. I filmed myself with a green screen. Put the video in C4D and made a simple animation of my motion. It's my first time animating something in C4D (took me forever). I made a 'lightsaber' that’s cast lights with 'Luminance'. And with the 'compositing' tag I made sure it's not visible thru the camera.
The thing were I get stuck is here. All I want to render is the body where the lights hit it. So I can put this on my green screen layer in AE. How do I render this. I tried this only before with multipass shadows and luminance, both didn't work.
Does someone know what I’m doing wrong. If you still got questions because I didn’t explain properly, please ask.
