This video left me dazed and confused and then I watched it again ;-) Robin Gething submitted this project as he has made extensive use of Blender for color matching and grading.

Blender is a great 3d content generator. Dont forget its post production tools.

In live action film, colour matching and grading is very important, not only to get all the varied shots to look similar, but to also paint a certain mood. Blender is an excellent program for these purposes. With multiple camera angles, the multicam tool (probably the most underused in Blender) is a godsend.

The moral of this story, dont underestimate the editing power of Blender.

This was shot with 2x Lumix GH2s and a GH3 with a gopro thrown in for good measure.(see if you can spot the gopro shots) All video has been cut, colour matched and edited in Blender, right down to the credits roll.

Spoiler alert. This is mainly live action. I have edited the entire work in Blender and this vid shows off the functions often forgotten about in Blenderworld, namely colour matching and grading. There is some green screen work and more cuts than a fabric store. The process took a few weeks after filming. Although its not the usual fare for Blender heads to see live action, I think its worth letting the world know its not just about rendering. there is some rendering btw:)

  • ragething

    I would also like to thank Alia sheikh, Andy Vine and BBC R@D. without you, none of this would of been possible.

    I use Blender for editing live action work all the time. The work I do is stunningly ordinary and pedestrian (it's for my job) but still, I agree that this facet of Blender deserves more recognition.

      its a thankless task but a very important one.

  • Rich Plewa

    Yes we have musicals. In Las Vegas and New York. If you count Music videos in your list.

    Just for a bit of insight into the use of blender. that scene with all the flashing is a noise envelope on the colour wheels. This is done on a adjustment layer that rides of the elements with anything above taken out of the equation. very simple but effective, i think. It was also a pleasure using the multi-cam tool for once.
