It rain quite often near where I live during the monsoon season. So, I paint over a few photos that I took and composite the rain in AfterEffects. The result wasn't really that bad for a test animation.
AnimationI have upload the animation in both my Youtube and Vimeo channel.
ScreenshotBelow are some screenshot from the animation.
3D RenderBeside using photos, I also use Blender3D to model and render some assets. The electric pylon and construction crane are 3D models. For me, it is much more easier to model and render in PNG alpha rather than masking these with a real photo.
