Stylize Your Video With Blending Modes - DJTV's Cutting Class Shows How

(October 23, 2007)
DMN Newswire--2007-10-23--Digital Juice® announced today it is releasing a new DJTV Cutting Class episode titled "Blending Bliss."  In this episode, host and trainer Chris "Ace" Gates provides an overview on Blending Modes and how they can be used to alter and improve the images used in a video production.  Blending Modes define how a base object is combined with other objects, such as an underlying background image, to produce an all new look or artistic variation.  "With a little understanding, blending modes can become a powerful tool that you can use to alter the look of your images for some really cool looks," says Ace.  "Blending modes can be more than a trial-by-error compositing technique and I will demystify common blending modes and show how they can be utilized to stylize your video footage.

What editors will learn in this episode:

  • Common blending modes and the effects they produce
  • Mixing two or more blending modes to stylize your imagery
  • How to colorize and adjust the levels of your images by using blending modes
  • Simulate camera filter effects
