An absolutely great read, thank you for this. Really lays a foundation on how to go about the learning process.
Hi Matthew and Mr VFX, I’m currently researching this topic of decomposing images into shading and reflectance layers. I would love to learn about what you are trying to use this for to learn more about applications for this technology.

LOS ANGELES (September 18, 2018)—The KitBash3d store, which launched a year ago this week, has found a special way to celebrate its anniversary – expanding its product offering. The young company, which has carved a niche for themselves offering top quality 3D architectural assets to concept artists, VFX and design studios, has released a new World Kit each month of this year. Their existing line encapsulates styles as varied as Neo Tokyo, Utopia, Fairy Tale and Future Slums, that have immediately been adopted by the industry’s top artists and studios. Today they launch their newest product line – Props.
Featuring four new kits, Streets, Greebles, Highways and Rooftops, and cheaper price points of $45, $95 and $145, artists will be able to further build out their worlds in a fraction of the time. Each kit is designed by a team of industry-leading concept artists and art directors and specifically built for production with clean geometry, mid-poly counts, UVed and textured. All assets are application agnostic and integrate seamlessly into workflows with all off-the-shelf digital content creation tools.
To help celebrate the anniversary launch, Destiny 2 cinematic director Sava Zivkovic has created a new cinematic brand film titled “Build Your World,” using only assets from the KitBash3d store. Opening in a dark world of the Fairy Tale kit, Zivkovic takes audiences on a ride, seamlessly traversing Gothic castles, Victorian sunsets, Neo Tokyo skyscrapers, the slums of Kowloon, embattled warzones, and ultimately the quest for life beyond our planet. The film’s score was composed by Iz Svemira.
“Our jaws hit the floor when we saw Sava’s video. This is the first cinematic of it’s kind to use the kits in such detail,” said KitBash3d Co-founder Maxx Burman, an art director and matte painter whose credits include Iron Man 3, Godzilla, and Game of Thrones among others.
“This is a very exciting day for us to launch this latest addition to our product line. After a year of putting out a new World Kit each month, and upgrading all our kits this summer to include textures, we believe our new Props line is exactly the expansion our audience has been asking for.” added KitBash3d Co-founder Banks Boutté.
“Working with Sava and Iz to make this new architectural exploration has been an incredible process. Sava has a unique ability to tackle cinematic environments completely on his own and at a pace that is equally impressive.”
