Creating an "oil painting" effect in Motion
on Jan 21, 2010 at 5:38:21 am

Hi

I'm trying to make a piece of footage look like an "moving" oil painting - just wondering if people had any ideas for how I could achieve this before I give up and have to buy an expensive plugin.

I've tried mixing silks and crystallizing and wide time which is not too bad, but I'm sure there's a better way...

Cheers
Chris

You may want to try adding an edge detection filter and cranking that way up. Look for "Edges" and "Edge Work".

I used to use a freeware version of Synthetik StudioArtist for this, but also there are a number of free resources in the Photoshop community where they have created automated batch processes you can apply to the images in a folder. You can download the droplets or specs for free, or make your own, by just turning on the actions recorder while you treat a single frame grab from yuor video to get the look you want, then apply the action to all the frames. Here's how: Export an image sequence in tif or targa format from your timeline, into a folder. Open that folder in Photoshop and apply the batch action to it, takes just minutes, re-import the stills back into the time line, done. Be sure you pre-set your FCP bins so that graphic imports have a single-frame duration, and I keep these image sequence folders in their own bin. A google search for "photoshop batch actions for oil painting look" will turn up a lot of easy guides to more specifics.

If you expect to do this effect more than once ad can bill your clients for the look, you want a package form DigiEffects. http://www.digieffects.com/product_home

They no longer list their products conveniently by platform but most of their plugs now drop into FCP.
