    I have a fair number of tree photos taken over the last few years, always thinking "I will use them"; at the beginning my wife was annoyed, but in the end she got used to me stopping for photographing trees :D). Aaanyhoo.. was looking for a tutorial on how to best cut-out the shape, this one below seems a decent method (more of a bookmark for me also :D).



    Method #2

    The first ones priceless with the methods use to tidy up the mask channel, just what I was looking for, I was getting halos on my cut out images.

    nice tutorial.

    now if all trees could separate themselves with a nice cloudy background from the race track into a massive field please, that's the tutorial we need :lol:, how to move trees to a massive field on their own some.

    I was talking about halos in general, for trees I use Speedtree, guaranteed crispy alphas every time ..."auto move" not so much. :D

    Hahaha :D. Well, that you actually do when shooting. That's why my wife was annoyed: I would stop the car on roads that had isolated trees

    this is how I did them before speedtree. equally good results when you base it from the alpha that was made first. also useful if you cant balance those halo effect well from the photo.
