Come watch the
The Watering Hole
A Bombed out City. A jet streaks by attacking the war weary defenders. The explosion of the missile shakes the ground, the fireball becomes a plume of death black soot.
Or .. it might just be a photo, with a jet and an explosion composited with FUSION!
This is our first attempt at visual effects with BlackMagic’s Fusion compositing software. We are excited by the possibilities!.
The clip has:
1 main back ground
2 masked buildings to create 3D plains
The green screened jet
The animated explosion also green screened
We used Fusion to create an animated fire glow on the surrounding buildings. Also blurred the layers differing amounts based on distance from the camera. And finaly used Resolve to edit the footage adding sound effects.
Rain Machine Test
Color Grading Experiment
This was an experiment in filming much brighter than the scene called for. Then in post bringing down the brightness levels. What we found was that if we shot bright enough that the shadow areas will not be so noisy when latered darkened. It’s a lot cleaner way to get high contrast darker scenes with a crisper look.
As usual all editing and color styling was done with Blackmagic Resolve .. All Hail the King!
