Film Look Tutorial - Blender


Counterpoint Life shows us some techniques in Blender to add that cinematic film look to your video footage. Do you guys use Blender with real video footage?


  1. Hi Yanal !

    Thank you for all your work and for this tutorial in particular . Excellent , very interesting. I suppose that there is a particular interest to use a lens distortion rather than a simple Ellipse Mask for vignetting , but I don't understand wich one .

    I normally add the video clip as an input source rather than use a rendered scene. I can still scale and zoom through nodes, if necessary, but it is less intuitive, of course.

    The "refilming" setup has some advantages however:
    * you can animate text or other images in front of the video
    * you can animate the movie time using ipo curves for arbitrary speed control (not that easy with the speedcontrol in VSE)
    * you can use motion blur for fast-forward effects
