  • Create a "Shine" Transition in EDIUS 4

    For those who missed the print version, here's a tutorial that (with a little work up front) is easy to reuse as needed!

    Enjoy!

    Good one Rusty.
    Have to agree with the reviewer's statement about how long, and with what, he's been getting away with keyframing that wasn't 'there' in Edius.

    Another tech is to dupe your clip, apply selected effect and trs to it. U can 'bump' too, depending on the trs options eg dissolve, ease in + hold + out etc.
    Heaps of tricks.

    The other day I had to use colour balance filter to even out L/S to C/U shots on the zoom plane duration of a 9 minute clip - repeatedly 'over n under' to compensate for gross and unavoidable backlight situation. The Blend filter - Nothing to Colour Balance keyframed and juggeled as req'd did the job.
    The keyframe graph looked a little like the gold and oil prices at the moment - up down, up down n very erratic. The end result on the clip treatment however is virtually unnoticeable exposure change from L/S to C/U camera framing. Not bad.

    Lots of options if you can spare the time:

    1) Try chromakeying a duped clip staggered 2-7frames and see what you get. Add a bit of colour treatment to the right clip and a different effect again. U can create some good stuff.

    2) Try the same without staggering the clip and u get a different effect again.

    3) Couple of years ago (late 04) I managed to make a title water ripple overlay to b/g video in Edius V2/3? Not easy to nut out but do-able, then a repeatable idea.

    Gotta know what's at your fingertips n how to workaround - if you have the time.

      Cool....someone actually read the article. I was the author and have often laughed at the "lack of keyframing" in Edius. Just put a thinking cap on....it's there and it works. Maybe not as gracefully as more mature apps but we have the ability.

      I am fortunate enough to have the editor of the magazine as a member of our local videographer association and gave him the business a few times about never having tutorials or positive reviews on Edius....turns out one of their assistant editors is not a huge Edius fan. He asked if I wanted to do a tutorial on Edius for the magazine so we can "get a little love" and I said sure.

      Now the question is....is there anything else that would make a good tutorial in Edius. I can write more if I can get some good ideas of what to write about. I covered lots of territory in that one with keyframes, custom presets, combine filters etc. Any ideas?

        How about tips on using TMP?

          If I could find a tutorial on TMP I would like to read it myself. I have never been able to wrap my brain around the advanced features the the app. I use it for basic credit rolls and stuff but the few times I have tried the advanced animated functions of TMP I got lost quickly. I would rather fire up After Effects and just do it in there. I figure if it takes the same amount of time in AE to figure out that the skill learned in AE will benefit me more down the road than TMP will. :-)

          Wasn't support and distribution for TMP going to be dropped by Canopus. I may be wrong but that is what I thought I heard about. Sorry if I am wrong on that.

          I would like to write another Edius tutorial and I have the go ahead from the magazine if I can find the correct content. I would like to keep it Edius focused and TMP is a third party app.

            A tutorial on Xplode Pro Compositor would be nice....

            I know a lot of edius editors that never use it because they dont know what to do with it...

              How about an in-depth tutorial on the Chrominance filter? I've managed a fractional grasp of its capabilities and have actually moved past using just the eyedropper tool for some really nice effects. By far the most daunting, complicated, and potentially coolest filter of the bunch!

              Can anyone else confirm that the Chrominance filter > "Histogram" checkbox is now functional in 4.24, or have I overlooked it until today??? Very nice!!! It appears checked and greyed while using the eyedropper (default) tool.

              Great article Philip! For contrast, our local video assn. President is a big Edius fan!

                That was a great tutorial. I have actually made all the presets and I plan to use the effect in my weddings. I would love to see more of these tutorials. I am sure there are many ways to use the powers of Edius that we do not know about. Thanks to Philip for the great lesson.

                  Thanks Philip. A lot of folks don't realize what can be accomplished using Blend Filters. It's been one of my favorite tools since day 1.

                    Based on my feelings about TMP being a 3rd party app and not really Edius I would probably steer away from the Xplode Pro Compositor for 2 reasons....I don't use Xplode at all and 2 it is no longer being supported or updated.

                      Are you in my association....I'm the president of ours. :-)

                      I will have to look into the Chrominance filter and a possible tutorial. There are some pieces of that thing I don't understand either but a little research into it's powers may yield some new material for a tutorial. I use it mostly in the "shine" filter and also to do a color pass type function and show only one color and the rest BW. That is really all I use it for. What are some other things you would like to know how to do with the chrominance filter or are you just looking for a more detailed explanation of all the chrominance filter functions.

                        And my favorite filter as well. I have to credit a moderator or someone from the old forums way back for tipping me off to the power of the blend filter. I couldn't live without it.....well I guess I could but it would be in another NLE.

                          If you wanted to see the actual clip that was created when I was building the tutorial you can at www.frogmanproductions.com/video/BissellHighlights.wmv. The shot is the one where they are kissing on the bridge just before the bride walks down the aisle. That is the actual footage I used in the tutorial. I just built the effect from scratch and defined it along the way.

                            It's always been there, but, it doesn't work in dropper mode, and in some versions there was a bug whereby leaving it checked and returning to the info first gave you a full color map (you would need to toggle it off, then back on to get proper display).

                            Play with the other modes. The ramping for both chroma and luma give you a lot of flexibility. In the pre-White Balance days, this was the way to get secondary color correction, albeit a bit labor-intensive.
