  1. lighting possible to get a dark background with diffuse light?

    Thanks! I've got my lights hanging from the ceiling already, but I can definitely get them higher, like right up against it. I can see how that would make the geometry easier... Can try and get them closer to the sides for the same reason!
  2. lighting possible to get a dark background with diffuse light?

    Thanks all! I'll start experimenting with some cardboard, if nothing else!
  3. lighting possible to get a dark background with diffuse light?

    Hi guys, I'm not very experienced in video things... I'm a musician who shoots his own videos (most of the time). Since covid we've been doing live stream shows from our small home studio, and I'd like to improve the looks slightly. Have done a few different lighting schemes, but in general...
  4. Silent Film era speeds/frame rates/etc

    Did a test recording w .625 ratio slowed down version of the song, sped up the video that was recorded to this version and after cutting to 15 FPS and playing that back at 24, the sped up video synced tested with the slowest down audio synced up perfectly to the original track. So I think I’m...
  5. Silent Film era speeds/frame rates/etc

    Thx for the warning! I’ve done something similar before, though, but recording faster and slowing down the footage, in that case from 30 to 24. Worked great, but this will be an entire ~3 minute song done in one take so the ratio has to be precise. I think it’s exactly 1.6 though (from 15fps up...
  6. Silent Film era speeds/frame rates/etc

    yeah that was my idea. Shooting in 30fps with normal action, then speeding up by 1.6x to get the fast motion in silent films. I wasn't plan on doing anything unusual with the camera other than picking an appropriate frame rate and shutter angle. I think the right on is going to be 30fps and...
  7. Silent Film era speeds/frame rates/etc

    This charlie chaplain film isn't far off. I might prefer *slightly* faster/awkward motion, but it's about as close as i can find in ten minutes of searching youtube. :-D Unfortunately my DLSR only shoots in 24, 30 or 60fps; no option to shoot directly in 12 or 15 or whatever. I guess I...
  8. Silent Film era speeds/frame rates/etc

    Hah, love that song and the police, but have never seen the video for it. I did something like that with another video myself, but only just slowing down an 30fps footage to play back at 24, so it was a little more subtle than the wrapped around your finger vid. BTW, getting the audio right...
  9. Silent Film era speeds/frame rates/etc

    Hi all - Thinking about doing a music video for my band that looks like a silent film era style. The film effects and grain are easy enough to do anywhere, but I'm wondering how much i would need to speed the film to get that look. We are planning on slowing down the song and performing it...
  10. How would one do this:

    Cool, thanks guys I’ll have to do some experimenting- this is the first I’ve heard about the rotoscope, but I’ll do some learnin!
  11. How would one do this:

    This is a pretty cool music video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nr9GiAECG1A It's inspired me to explore some possibilities of doing something akin to this with my own music.* How would one go about this? I've edited a handful of videos together before in FCPX, but have no experience...

    Not necessarily married to motion/FCPX vs adobe, other than the fact I'd like to use the tools I've already purchased rather than learn new ones, haha! If there are things that AE can do that I need that motion can't, though, i'm also not averse to using AE though. Imagine the price of entry...

    Hi all- a friend recommended this forum yesterday to me. I'm an independent musician, interested in filming/editing/effecting/etc some of my own music videos. Mainly due to budget, TBH. I'd rather spend time making music than working on videos, but I can't afford to hire the real...
