Our quiet neighborhood

Postby pro70z28 » Wed May 30, 2012 8:16 am

Last night before dark I thought I'd try out the Selective Color Effect in V-I-D-E-O mode on the Nikon. Before I went outside I shot a blue roll & a red roll of vinyl off the rack to get a color sample.As you'll see it's a nice quite street with an occasional passerby. It was working great, only red & blue thingys were in color, just like it was spoz' to be. Then at the end some joker messed it up. :dontknow:

Be sure to turn your sound up. I uploaded this @ 1080 so if you have a slower connection you may want to select a lower res. like 480 or so to keep the video streaming.

Thanks Jean N' BP. WC, it was windy that day so I deleted the audio altogether & replaced it with off the shelf sound effects from the FCP X library. The background wind noise is a sea shore audio clip turned way down & ramps put in to vary the sound a little. The cars going by are all the same sports car clip with just a volume change to make each sound a little different. Dogs, birds & a couple other sounds thrown in. The P.U. is a drag car audio, chopped up, duplicated & the volume was ramped up & down to get it to somewhat match the clip. There's 5 separate audio tracks all together all but a couple have multiple sound clips on each track. Like photoshop it's fun playing around with different combinations to see what works & what doesn't. I did a down N' Dirty speed up of the P.U. I have a plug in for FCP X called motion that does a much more realistic job of changing speeds of the video, but I haven't messed with it much yet. There's a ton of special effects plug-ins that I'd like to try eventually. Sort of like Photoshop in that ....there are so many menus & sub menus, it's like a huge maze exploring all the options available with this program.
It's fun.
