- Hi, I'm Jeff Greenberg. In this exciting class, we're going to take blending modes to the next level. We're going to do more than you ever seen done with them before. Starting with the idea that we would figure out how blending modes work, and I'm going to give you my famous decoder ring. From there, we will look at some common uses, including how to do some drawing on text with the assistance of motion. We're going to look at some color correction about how to quickly handle some overexposed, and some underexposed footage. We're going to use a luma keyer to adjust what we actually can pick from an image.
We are then going to use some alpha channel files, including text and a logo, to be able to embed video inside of these items. Last, we will end up using other elements, including some of the Final Cut Pro 10 built in generators, elements for motion, and some third-party items. If you think blending modes are just going through the list and guessing which one you want, you are in for a huge surprise.
