Eyeon Digital Fusion: Color Suppression in Digital Fusion 3.1

Chapter: Color Correction

Topic: Advanced Techniques

Using the new color corrector in eyeon Software’s Digital Fusion 3.1 to suppress a color can be quite useful when your footage has undesired elements. It will selectively remove a color from the footage, leaving the rest of the spectrum. But what if the color doesn’t quite fit into one of the 6 suppression slots? No problem. In the following example I will show you how to deal with this.

Adobe After Effects: Logo which Appears in a Ripple

Chapter: Titling

Topic: Effects

Logo ripples and glows out from the center. Could be adapted for growing force field or other effect. Great way to bring on a title. Ayato’s tutorials are very advanced. Because English is his second language you really need to know After Effects moderately well to follow all the steps. Some additional plug-ins are needed, but most are available in demonstration form.

Sony Vegas: Simulating the Bullet-Time Effect with Sony Vegas and the free WinMorph plug-in

Chapter: Visual and Creative Effects

Topic: Reproducing TV or Film Effects

In this tutorial, Satish Kumar demonstrates the famous Matrix style Bullet-time effect in Vegas Video: A man leaps in the air with a gun, fires a shot, and then hovers in the air while the camera moves†around him 180 degrees. To create this effect, we have the shot of the man leaping in the air as a video and 6 still shots of him in the air at different angles. We will morph between the still shots using the†WinMorph plug-in for Vegas. This morphed video is composited with a moving background giving the 180 degree camera rotation effect.

I got a few e-mails asking how I created the flying swirls around the Mindsprung emblem in the Radio Waves tutorial. It is fairly simple if you know how to manipulate 3D, and in this exercise, we?ll create a 3D atom using nothing more than the out of the box After Effects Production Bundle.
