This course was created and produced by Chris Meyer. We are honored to host his material in the lynda.com Online Training Library®.
Final Cut Pro: Adding Lighting Effects in Post demonstrates how to use any version of Final Cut Pro to easily add animated lighting effects to existing footage. Going beyond basic techniques, Chris Meyer shares his personal experience and uses many examples to teach the best way to select and fine-tune lighting clips to enhance a variety of underlying shots. He presents techniques for subtle enhancements that will help hold the viewer's attention while adding production value to virtually any shot.
And there are some simple tricks and tips on how you can add artificial lighting to a scene after it's been shot. Now the reason you can do that in Final Cut Pro in the first place is because Final Cut has composite modes. That's the secret to artfully add one layer on top of another layer. However, if you have Final Cut Suite, you also have Apple's Motion, and Motion has even more modes than Final Cut does. That gives you more options, gives you more subtle, more varied, just more choices in your lighting effects. Anyway, I hope you find this technique useful. It's a nice way to add impact to your shots.
Have fun using it.
