    Default The Dark-Side of the House

    Last night, while doing a technical analysis on some Osmo test footage in Davinci Resolve 15, I serendipitously stumbled on an OpenFX plugin in the software that is pretty cool. So, I played around with it and I'm sharing the results just for fun:

    Now that is rather cool. I can imagine this being used for POV shots from an Alien, Monster or Ghost. It works particularly well with the gimbal and i think it might also work well for those "urban discovery" or whatever they call them vids. The only problem I see is that it will immediately become overused and cliché.

    Unfortunately, that happens with everything cool. Then it is no longer cool.

    It's a good indication that something really is cool though so for the time being.... use it as much and often as possible!

    what's it called? I've done something similar in Corel Paintshop long ago I think it was called neon edge there but I guess it's probably just a name.

    In Resolve 15, it is called "EdgeDetect" in the OpenFX effects library. I also threw in the "Aperture Diffraction" effect to get the lights to act the way they did.

    And, yes, I agree, I will use it again soon, next time: mit die Haustiere. They can be little monsters when they want to be.

    Meh. I'll just stick with the shaky handheld camera. It's an awesome and professional looking technique that has never failed me. In fact, they need to make a plugin that makes steady shots look like that.

    Some of those music videos are very similar to an effect called solarisation (or more correctly the Sabbatier Effect) on film which cost Pinewood Studios and Harrow Technical College an absolute fortune in the late 70s with a camera assistant (me) unofficially trying to get it right.

    Good job they never found out about it!

    And I never really got anything like a satisfactory result.

    One thing which video does much better!

    as for "Hot Gossip".... Phwoar!
