By Jay P. Morgan I shot a commercial for Los Gringos Loco on the Red using one of my favorite special effects…Fire! In this back yard barbecue we see everything go up in flames. The goal was to shoot both video and stills that the restaurant will use for advertising purposes. Creating fire is one of my favorite special effects. It’s not easy and must be done with complete caution. I have been building burn bars of different sizes and shapes for years. This is a little taste on how to make fire. I used a new strobe head/constant light form Dynalite. It’s the MH 2065v head with a 650 watt constant modeling light. It makes it so much easer to shoot Video and stills on the same setup. I do not recommend that people try and create fire at home. This video does not give you enough information to safely do so. Keep those cameras rolling and keep on click’n! www.kesslercrane.com www.tamron-usa.com www.dynalite.com www.photoflex.com www.niksoftware.com http www.glidecam.com www.triplescoopmusic.com http Video Rating: 4 / 5

Enough theory! Let’s start using Apple’s Motion 5 to create some video that’s useful. In this video I simply took two shots and stiched them together, using a mask to select the portion of the image I wanted. Simple, except for having to fix a small oversight. Oops. I’ve also shown what equipment I used to capture the footage. www.desktopvideoguy.com Video Rating: 4 / 5
I recently bought Apple’s Motion 5 software from the App Store. I’m not a motion graphics expert, so let’s learn it together. This episode covers startup options and the basic interface layout. Make sure to keep an eye out for more episodes! Video Rating: 5 / 5

This video is a preview of a webinar and is the third of four parts introducing FCP X. This online video training provides a detailed guide to creating effects using transitions and built-in effects available to all clips. When the story is complete, the effects take over. Effects allow you to create visual elements that just aren’t possible in production. In the complete step-by-step tutorial, Larry explains all the built-in effects, and provides lots of examples of how to put them to work for your projects. If creating effects without wasting time are important to you, you need watch this session! Final Cut Pro X is a radically different take on non-linear editing. With an interface that borrows more from iMovie than Final Cut Pro 7, Apple has presented video editors with a new way of thinking about editing and effects creation.

Doing the Hulk color change change effect in After Effects CS5. Can change person to any color, I chose blue for fun and it looked like that dude from Ghost Rider. All of the effects come with After Effects except for RotoBrush. RotoBrush is only in CS5. CS4 and below has to use the pen tool and animate every frame. This is why I love CS5… Part 2: www.youtube.com Programs Used: -Adobe After Effects CS5 -Camtasia Studio 7 Check out my tutorial on Chroma Key and Dynamic Link www.youtube.com Add and Subscribe Thanks Please rate and comment… if you can give me some ideas on what you want to see me do in my videos just comment and ill try to do it to the best of my ability.
