- Selecting the right footage for the right lighting effects Transforming images with lighting and color correction Using vignetting to set the scene Adjusting blur for a subtle change
Hi! I'm Chris Meyer of Crish Design and I'd like to share with you a technique that we use to add animated lighting effects to live-action footage, which has already been shot. Quite often we get footage from clients, which is technically correct. It's well composed, it's evenly lit, but it just lacks that certain magic or something that keeps the viewer's attention. So what we do is we find a second clip that contains just interesting lighting and shadows and blend it on top on the original footage. Now the technique itself is simple. What takes a little bit more work is finding the right lighting clip to match on top of your live footage.
So we're going to spend a lot of time in the next few movies talking about what works or doesn't work for a lighting clip, how to pick a lighting clip that does complement your footage and how to use effects, transformations and other things to better tweak-in that lighting to make it really enhance the footage. We'll show you things that work and things that don't work so well, so you have an idea of what might work on your project. So with that, let's get started.
