The Vectorscope in After Effects

CreativeCOW presents The Vectorscope in After Effects -- Adobe After Effects Tutorial


CreativeCOW.net. All rights reserved.


The vectorscope is a powerful tool to help users get a graphical representation of the chrominance values of their footage instead of just having to rely on their eyes because - as we all know - our eyes don't always tell us the whole truth when it comes to dealing with color! Because the vectorscope is somewhat hidden in AE, it is sometimes overlooked, so in this tutorial, Andrew Devis shows how to find, set-up and use the vectorscope in AE to look at whole images as well as specific regions of interest.

Grazie Mr. Andrew Davis,
it was too long since I did not get "inspired" from our friends with the library in the background.
I really like your fast and easy way of explaining things.
I do not use any more color finess but I loved your tutor and it gave me as always important information.
Ciao Nic.

Hi Nic

thanks for the comments, I'm really pleased to hear that you got something worthwhile for the tutorial. I am planning more AE Basics tutorials very soon - so who knows... maybe some 'inspiration' in the future? ;o)

All the best
Andrew

Hi Andrew, Thank you for the great tutorial. It is the clearest explanation of the vector scope I have had.

For myself I apply the SA color finesse effect to an adjustment layer then I do not have to precompose the composition. Makes it a bit easier.

Hi Johannes
Thanks for the comment - I have 'liked it' as it is a useful addition to the tutorial. I too use adjustment layers a lot of the time and should really have shown that in the tutorial ... but you can't think of everything!

Thanks again
Andrew

Andrew thanks for the tutorials. I have gotten a lot of use out of a waveform monitor in Vegas, but never understood how to use the vector scope. Now I'm comfortable with it and have been using SA's monitors a lot this weekend after watching your tutorial. Thanks!

mocha AE Planar Tracker for Absolute Beginners

mocha AE Planar Tracker for Absolute Beginners

Want to learn how to create advanced visual effects? Learn how to use mocha AE to track your shot and add advanced visual effects to live action footage inside Adobe After Effects. mocha can help you track shots that would be hard to track using traditional 2D point or feature trackers because it is a PLANAR TRACKER. A planar tracker uses planes and textures to track as opposed to points or groups of pixels. This allows the tracker to stay on track even if your shot contains motion blur or a very shallow depth of field. mocha AE comes included with Adobe After Effects and is available since CS3 and there is no reason for you not to use this awesome tool to make it easier for you to track your shot, replace screens or rotoscope!
