Smooth a wall


Recommended Posts

here's a 700x700

I have a plaster wall that has gone wobbly as time passed. There are places where it's not smooth, and I see grooves like this. How would I fix it? Because it's not a simple gradient.


I've tried the patch tool, sometimes it works.


Sometimes the edges of the patching gets a halo, and I duno why.


Sometimes maybe from the noise, I get posterisation of the area I patched.

This is the wall, a four way cyc

The light stripe you see in the top left is actually from a fold in the plaster

The around corners have the biggest problems with random scratches and stuff

I also very find it very hard to edit this wall because it's hard to see all the issues after staring at grey for a while. I have to come back to it several times over several days


Because it's a small space I can't have people far enough away from the back to hide the issues

Sometimes these waves come if I edit then see another issue and edit again.

Sometimes the halo appears and I keep patching the edges of it and see if it goes before I reach the subjects.

There's no after because I'm not happy with anything other than full replacement of bg where it's a half body


All the parts in the last post are from attempts to change it which didn't work because of the artefacts you can see

Using the dither  option  on the gradient, how do I combine that with the noise layer? Should I use both or just one or the other? Because I will apply the noise layer to parts that I do not change

The edit is good, and faster than patching.

I'm just wondering about how to fix my wall. No point having a cyc if you have to edit each one.

Of course I"ll get it smoothed, but is there a min. radius to avoid reflections?
