Adobe Dimension Holiday Bots

  • Holiday Bots for Adobe Dimension
  • As a character designer, the majority of my projects deal with compositing 3D-generated assets convincingly over a photographed background plate. Adobe invited me to take a look at using Dimension for just such a purpose, and I happily agreed to give it a try.

  • Dimension saves a .PSD file with additional layers. One of the most useful is Material and Object Selection Masks, which can be used to select regions of the final render and apply additional Adjustment Layers.
