    Default Side by side: raw footage and VFX

    Hi guys.

    There is this "one video per thread" rule on User Videos section, so I decided to post it here instead. Not that this is video that requires feedback anyway, just a little something that you might find interesting.

    Couple of days ago I thought it might be interesting to play raw footage version of the battle scene in The Endlings next to version that has all effects, sounds, color correction etc. It turned out to be surprisingly good way to show just how many VFX shots there were, so I made a Youtube version for others to see.

    The VFX made for the film include cloning, skin color changing, muzzle flares, smoke, bullet hits, lightning bolts, glowing glasses, smoke here and there, "vanisher" effect etc tc. Many shots seem surprisingly empty once you take the clones out.

    As film makers we all know how much goes into all these gradings and effects, but it still surprises when you see it. Interesting indeed. For future reference, posting this in the same thread as the completed film would be fine. The point is to avoid different films and hence possible confusion in the comments.

    Here's also a bit more traditional VFX breakdown. I made this before I got the idea for the side-by-side video, but I was waiting for the composer to finish his song for this. It's a bit different as it takes only certain effects and goes through them step-by-step, but I think the side-by-side might be more appealing for most people. Anyway, check it out if you're interested, I quite like the song Ville wrote for it.

    I like both styles of presenting the VFX. And this was the best way of seeing it - side by side first, then the breakdown a couple of weeks later! Thanks for posting.
