Colour correction

Using the colour corrector
tool within final
cut, enabled us to adjust
tones such as whites, mids
blacks and saturation
within the clips. We
decided to go for a
darkish, slightly bluely
tone, to give a cold, sinister                                                                           Using Final cut

the shot.

Freeze Framing
                 By freeze framing a certain frame within the clip, allowed me to use the
                 background of the field (around the scope) and mask out the area I wanted. This
                 then created a still image around the outside of the scope.

Using Adobe After Effects CS3 to                 Opacity
create the title sequence and                    We balanced the opacity here to get the right amount of darkness coming
sniper scene                                     through in the clip. We didn’t want to create a ‘game like look’, so by lowering
                                                 the opacity we could get more brightness coming through.
Masking
Originally, we were not happy with a straight overlay of a sniper scope image placed on top of the original clip. So we decided to crop round it to
give a sense of where the sniper was looking. The white area shows where we masked the scope, and faded (Feathered) it in.
AUDIO




We gathered our sounds from many different sources such as a complete sound effect design package called (Sound FXs
 extreme) and another package which came with Jacks Final Cut Pro X software in which we found hundreds of different
                                         sound effects related to our thriller.
Once the sounds were imported we cut the relevant sections and moved the clips to fit the video. Using the Pen tool, we then created fade ins and fade
  outs of the audio, lowering the volume in places and enhancing the volume in others. We also took some sounds from the raw footage we shot. By
     disconnecting the footage with the audio, we moved sections to other areas of the video which made it sound more interesting and exciting.
THE ORGANISATION STAGE
                 FIRST STAGE OF EDITING THE TITLE SEQUENCE




 Firstly, all the clips had to be organised into the relevant places within the timeline. For example first they had to be cut and moved so all
 flow as one. At this stage I also twixtored (an external plugin within after effects that allows for advance slow motion settings) Once I set
the key frames I could change what speed I wanted twixtor to be. I also Pre composed some layers so I didn’t have loads of layers which
                                           were all separate instead I put them all in one clip, in affect.
ADDING THE TITLES



                                                                                                                                                  Wiggler
Key                                                                                                                                               Effect
Frames




  Adding titles to the finished video background sequence was experimental. Firstly using the wiggler effect, I could give the titles a slow random
  movement or a fast paced movement. This was then refined by the use of the radical blur effects which were key framed at specific points to fit the
  relevant movement e.g. low blur slow pace, high blur fast pace. I had to be careful not to over blur areas of text as it could be easily lost, and
  unreadable.
BEFORE RENDERING TIMELINE


One restriction was I                                                                                                                                  Effects
had to preview my
sequence in the
                                                                                                                                                       I used
lowest
quality, meaning I
might have missed
areas of raw
colour, and shape on
some parts of the
image being
displayed.




           Just before I began rendering my final title sequence, I made sure all my text layers were complete and refined, and checked the right effect
           was added onto each layer. Because of the lack of PC power I was restricted to rendering the whole thing out as one complete clip, instead I
             had to render it in three, then put it back together again in Final Cut. This was the only drawback I had with edited in after effects on my
                                                                                computer.

What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing the product?

  • 1.
  • 2. Colour correction Using the colour corrector tool within final cut, enabled us to adjust tones such as whites, mids blacks and saturation within the clips. We decided to go for a darkish, slightly bluely tone, to give a cold, sinister Using Final cut look. This helped enhance the mood represented in to organise the shot. our finished clips and Colour corrected did render the however become frustrating in final cut final as the lack of filters sequence. meant we couldn’t create a correction with really enhanced colour change. This meant we lacked professionalism in our clips at the start, where we made it darker using a separate colour correcting Opacity programme we could With this tool, we could easily fade in and out, crossfade and create a ‘blinking’ like effect in the have accomplished clip. This became a useful, successful tool, to create length, and build ups, to slow down certain a more interesting, thriller areas and speed up others. It gave us scope to become more professional in experimenting with like look. different transitions instead of the typical ‘cut’.
  • 3. Freeze Framing By freeze framing a certain frame within the clip, allowed me to use the background of the field (around the scope) and mask out the area I wanted. This then created a still image around the outside of the scope. The Wiggler Effect Using this useful tool inside after effects allowed me to adjust how much movement (Sway) to give on the masked image. This gave a realistic handheld like feel, without looking to mechanically edited. Using Adobe After Effects CS3 to Opacity create the title sequence and We balanced the opacity here to get the right amount of darkness coming sniper scene through in the clip. We didn’t want to create a ‘game like look’, so by lowering the opacity we could get more brightness coming through.
  • 4. Masking Originally, we were not happy with a straight overlay of a sniper scope image placed on top of the original clip. So we decided to crop round it to give a sense of where the sniper was looking. The white area shows where we masked the scope, and faded (Feathered) it in.
  • 5. AUDIO We gathered our sounds from many different sources such as a complete sound effect design package called (Sound FXs extreme) and another package which came with Jacks Final Cut Pro X software in which we found hundreds of different sound effects related to our thriller.
  • 6. Once the sounds were imported we cut the relevant sections and moved the clips to fit the video. Using the Pen tool, we then created fade ins and fade outs of the audio, lowering the volume in places and enhancing the volume in others. We also took some sounds from the raw footage we shot. By disconnecting the footage with the audio, we moved sections to other areas of the video which made it sound more interesting and exciting.
  • 7. THE ORGANISATION STAGE FIRST STAGE OF EDITING THE TITLE SEQUENCE Firstly, all the clips had to be organised into the relevant places within the timeline. For example first they had to be cut and moved so all flow as one. At this stage I also twixtored (an external plugin within after effects that allows for advance slow motion settings) Once I set the key frames I could change what speed I wanted twixtor to be. I also Pre composed some layers so I didn’t have loads of layers which were all separate instead I put them all in one clip, in affect.
  • 8. ADDING THE TITLES Wiggler Key Effect Frames Adding titles to the finished video background sequence was experimental. Firstly using the wiggler effect, I could give the titles a slow random movement or a fast paced movement. This was then refined by the use of the radical blur effects which were key framed at specific points to fit the relevant movement e.g. low blur slow pace, high blur fast pace. I had to be careful not to over blur areas of text as it could be easily lost, and unreadable.
  • 9. BEFORE RENDERING TIMELINE One restriction was I Effects had to preview my sequence in the I used lowest quality, meaning I might have missed areas of raw colour, and shape on some parts of the image being displayed. Just before I began rendering my final title sequence, I made sure all my text layers were complete and refined, and checked the right effect was added onto each layer. Because of the lack of PC power I was restricted to rendering the whole thing out as one complete clip, instead I had to render it in three, then put it back together again in Final Cut. This was the only drawback I had with edited in after effects on my computer.
