PBS Buddha trailer - How did they do this????
on Apr 8, 2010 at 5:38:23 pm

Hi, all - I'm very intrigued by the trailer for the new PBS documentary on "Buddha". It opens with a series of watercolor splotches that dissolve into images and transition into other images.
How did they do this????
Is this done with a plug-in (maybe for Final Cut or Motion ... or After Effects)?
I'd be really grateful for any help with this!

Thanks in advance,

Jay

Sorry, am I watching the right video? The link goes to the video: The Buddha: Seeking, part 3. I can't see the effect you are looking for.

Sorry, Stephen - maybe I pasted the wrong link. Looks like PBS took the trailer down, but I managed to find it on You Tube (yea!)
Here it is:






I hope you can tell me how they did this - I'm really keen to find out!

Thanks again

Jay

Check out the Human Target open.

Any ways, you can use the paint to to create a white stroke set to something like ink bleed or buy a product well worth the money called Compositors Toolkit. Compositors Toolkit Vol 1 has Cloud and Ink Chamber elements. You take them and make the black and with say the level filter or colorize filter. Create the element that you want to "paint" on and apply an Image Mask to it and you got a cool effect. For info on blend modes and image mask check out my Creating a Hologram video tutorial. The info you are after is in the middle of the tutorial. Hope this helps and best of luck.
