Another greenscreen test...

video
Well, it's rough. The matte on the foreground element looks pretty lame- I've got to figure out the settings to get an alpha channel into FXHome.

Nevertheless, I am pretty excited about this test for a couple of reasons. It looks pretty good. Once I get that fg matte looking better, it will look real. The train holds up. At the distance I shot it at, and the lighting system I used (an overhead 1k and a side diffused 1k) it blended pretty nicely in color with the image.

One other issue- I'm still not completely sure that the output settings I'm using from FXHome are correct. I am choosing the same output (HD 1080i60) but it plays back choppy. Weird.

Well, I hope you enjoy!

  3. Yes.
    It's a filter I found that simulates the old school projection.

  5. What level of 'look' are you thinking? Scratches, dust, exposure rot?, etc.

  6. Wow! Thanks, Terry!
    No, I think this is getting close. I don't want it to be unwatchable!

  7. I'm glad to hear that. Your after that 'just released' in 1860 look. Very very cool! Soundwise you may want to consider processing the sound through a 'speakerphone' plugin. I've got it and it is soooooo awesome. Its so controllable and it gives the sound that 'vintage' sound.
