3D Lighter/Compositor

What does a 3D Lighter/Compositor do? 

Just like on a live action movie set, the Lighter/Compositor uses lights and associated effects to create a mood for the characters to interact within their environment.  

What type of person could be a good 3D Lighter/Compositor? 

A good 3D Lighter/Compositor is someone with a good eye for detail and loves to enhance things to their highest potential. It helps if you are patient; lighting and compositing is near the end of the pipeline which sometimes means inheriting a tight schedule.  

How do I become a 3D Lighter/Compositor? 

A great way to practice and learn 3D lighting/compositing is to take a screen capture of a 3D animated film and change the mood of it by using a program like Photoshop to create a new light source, shadows and some highlighted effects.
