We've got some exciting news for our film makers and story tellers! If you've seen the opening scenes to Scott Whitaker's 'A Road Alone' (link to A Road Alone) winner of Best Film at last year's Open Frame, you're aware of the moody 'dutch tilt' he employed to hint that the world of this runner coming toward us was about to be turned on it's head.
Scott adds to the texture of his shot with a dreary rainy soundscape and a depressing drizzle. You may have wondered how Scott's team patiently waited for the perfect storm to film that opening shot. Surprise ... it wasn't raining at all ... Scott added the rain and colored the shot digitally with some special effects plugins available in Final Cut Pro.
So you can make it rain, make it snow, cloud up with fog or even fill the scene with grit and debris. All possible with a suite of Final Cut Pro plugins that we've purchased for use in your movies and video story telling. We've added Snow generators, Smoke, Fog, Grit and Grime, Color Texture and of course realistic rain effects software to our special effects arsenal available to you. For a look at what you can accomplish with these effects check out the Pro Rain plugin here: http://store.pixelfilmstudios.com/plugin/effect-prorainvolume2. While you're there, you can also check out ProGrit, ProFog, ProSmoke, ProSnow and ProToner, all of which we have made available for use in your projects.
