Light Wrap is a simple yet very useful tool for Fusion. I created this tool several years ago and have been using it ever since. It doesn’t do magic or any fancy compositing, but whenever I want to marry two different plates, Light Wrap comes in very handy.
Here is a photo I took in August 2015. It was a sunny summer evening, the time when sunlight gets trapped between glass buildings and starts to bounce all around the streets creating interesting lighting scenarios.
I took this photo and composited a scanned Buddha statuette on top. I didn’t spend much time lighting and rendering. I used a quick three-point lighting setup and eyeballed everything else. Once I got the render, I brought it in comp. Light Wrap and Vintage lens filtering compensated my lazy rendering setup helping me to blend in the CGI element.
Here is the scheme which shows one of the ways to connect and use the Light Wrap node in the flow.
