You guys were such a huge help before (thank you for that) that I wanted to see if something else I thought wasn't possible actually is.
First off I have VisionLab (but this is Compositing so I'm putting it into the Composite section)
here's what I'm trying to do... take two images, lay them one on top of the other and use the artifacts from one image to affect the other.
I've done this a bunch of times in Photoshop but there's a feature called "Multiply" that sort of blends the two images together and I'm looking through VL to see if there's a way to do something similar since now it's an animation I'm trying to do this with and to go through EACH frame in Photoshop would take a LONG time...
To make a long story short, this is basically what I'm doing. It's in 3DS Max and called Ambient Occlusion: http://scottdewoody.com/tutorial_occ.html
I thought to try and run a batch job in PS but the cutting and pasting could get very messy. Hell, VL worked like a charm with Z-Depth, it might work with this too!
