Cool Video Editing Video editing is a broad field and there are many video production companies out there, but at the end of the day, it’s always cool. Some parts of video editing y p g are cooler than others, though, and the most fun I’ve ever had in video ff production is in special effects development and processing. Perhaps unfortunately, special effects can be kind of hard to get the hang of – it is its own field, after all – but that doesn’t mean it’s completely inaccessible. p y we’ll Today, we ll look at two of the most useful video production techniques that result in some of the coolest video edits you’ve ever seen – guaranteed. Chroma Keying Chrome is a technique we use to eliminate a certain color from a shot. useless, practice While that sounds useless in practice, it gives us a host of cool effects. One of the most common of these is to use the green screen, key the color green, and then replace that removed screen with a backdrop we choose. Ever wanted to b kd h E t dt walk on the moon without a space suit? how This is how. Need a desert landscape for your video project? Chroma key it in.

Duplicate Someone Sometimes, you need one actor to shot. appear twice in a shot You have two options: Clone him, or duplicate the I’m I’ll image. Since I m not a scientist, I ll teach the latter. It’s really easy, actually, and uses the above First setup we had above. First, shoot the backdrop, and then film the actor doing his two parts against the g p g green screen,, (not at the same time, of course), key out the green from both videos, and then set them against your backdrop. That way, you’ll have your actor and her doppelganger i th same shot – no d l in the h t cloning necessary. http://www phink tv/ http://www.phink.tv/
