If you have ever spent hours on end with the pen and bezier tool rotoscoping frame-by-frame in After Effects, then you’ll appreciate the magic happening with this future tech that Adobe will be showing off at NAB 2013 (and hopefully releasing inside of After Effects CS6.5). Check out the video tease below for a closer look: [click to continue…]
Noise Industries has a new keyer tool for FCP X, PHYX Keyer, which lets you key inside the app with a powerful set of controls so you don’t have to roundtrip to Motion or After Effects. PHYX Keyer also works in Adobe Premiere Pro, as well as After Effects and Motion. [click to continue…]
FxFactory 4.0 is now available and adds support for Adobe Premiere Pro. The plug-in management program has been a great tool for using with FCP X, Motion, FCP 7 and After Effects; however, the one video editing program that I use the most hasn’t been supported and, as a result, I’ve not been able to take advantage of so many cool video plug-ins. But now it is.
FxFactory 4.0 is a free download and there are a few free plug-ins that are available with it. Additional plug-ins are available for trial and purchase with integration inside of FxFactory.
You can download FxFactory 4.0 from Noise Industries’ website.
Digital Anarchy has released a free plug-in for After Effects, Final Cut Pro and Premiere Pro that turns subjects skin into ultra-damaged zombies or witches. [click to continue…]
Photography Bay reader Mayeul Akpovi is at it again with the second part to his solid timelapse work in Paris. Paris in Motion (Part II) continues with the stunning scenery we showed you in Part I back in August.
He moved the tripod by hand for 3500 shots that made up this video. And, in some cases, he handheld the camera and moved himself in as straight a line as possible to create the moving timelapse effect.
As you can see in the below video, this movement resulted in some very shaky timelapse footage. However, it was easily saved by stabilizing the timelapse in Adobe After Effects for some stunning results. The large files from the 5D Mark II make it easy to apply stabilizing filters like Adobe’s warp stabilizer thanks to plenty of look-around space provided by the 5K+ resolution.
For those curious, Mayeul used the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L and 17-40mm f/4L for the shots that built this timelapse.
Thanks for sending this in Mayeul. You can check out more of Mayeul’s work here on Vimeo.
