How to make psychedelic backgrounds for a greenscreen live performance?
on Jan 21, 2015 at 5:47:46 pm

Hello everyone!

I am getting ready to make a video for my friend's band. His idea is to try to emulate the feel of some of those 70's videos with the band in front of a green screen(at the time, it was probably blue) and a bunch of psychedelic visuals. Here's a couple examples:

Black Sabbath -





Frumpy -





I feel confident in my multicam editing and greenscreen process.. Lighting, placement etc. My problem is with the psychedelic graphics. I can see that Black Sabbath used a lot of still pictures, that I guess they zoomed around and color-cycled through.. Any pointers on that color-cycling technique?

Also, I would REALLY like to pull off the style like in the background of the Frumpy video above, where it will show one band member mirrored a bunch of times, kinda blending together with crazy colors. This would be awesome to be able to pull off.

Any help totally appreciated, and thanks in advance!

Nick

To help you replicate the look -- you can't duplicate it, because that was done live -- I'd investigate the term, "video feedback". It'll help a lot.

There are so many way to go on this that a how-to guide wouldn't fit in a simple forum.

Thanks a lot! Knowing the name of this effect was what I needed. Time to make some feedback!

Cheers,

This script looks like it would do the job :)

What differentiates that plugin from the built-in Effects>Generate>Cell Pattern?
