In this video tutorial, Jerzy Drozda Jr (aka Maltaannon) demonstrates how to change the look and feel of your footage easily with his new, useful CustomEffect for color correction
.

Color correction made easy -- Finally!

Have you ever had to color correct a shot? I'll bet you have.

Even small corrections are often required to make the shoot look better. And what about cinematic looks? I'm sure everyone has tried to recreate the filmlook on your own footage at least once. But wait, there's more...

You can even color correct poorly balanced footage to restore original colors. Yep. CE ColorCorrector allows you do to all that in 5 easy steps or less.

CE ColorCorrector is a wrapper around Adobe Color Balance plugin. I'm not really sure if I got the math behind it right, but hey, it works for me. You can also use it along with Hue/Saturation, Curves and Levels for even more control over the look and feel of your footage. Happy color correcting.

Side note:

This CustomEffect was built using After Effects CS3, but it should also work with CS2 or even 6.5 but I'm not sure about that.

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!
