      Damn, I made a little Soundtrack for the beginning and the end, but I forgot to make it into the render :/ A basic Tutorial on my approach on the HDR-Feature of the Magic Lantern-Firmware. Please understand this guide as a more technical one and excuse that I had to cut Examples and so on, but I only can upload 500mb/week here and 30min are already a bit too long for such a heavy Compression. Have a view at the Table of Contents and skip to the Parts which interest you: Introduction at Start "01: General preprocessing in the Footage" starting at 2:07 "02: Using Pixelmotion for Interpolation (AE internal)" starting at 6:55 "03: Using Kronos" starting at 10:58 "04: Composing the Shots (and why Luma-Key sucks)" starting at 16:35 "05: Preparing the Sequence for real HDR" starting at 18:48 "05: Inside Photomatix" starting at 22:01 (MAYBE I messed up the numbers - sorry! :) "06: Processing HDR in After Effects and Final Words" starting at 26:09 Check out this Tutorial on using GingerHDR from their Makers: http://vimeo.com/34590403 And in good Tradition I of course forgot to mention several things. Sorry for that! // When shooting HDR, one Clip will always get a higher ISO, which may result in heavy Noise (like a 3EV 400/3200). Reducing Noise with e.g. NEAT or the little Median-Trick can do a good job and result in even less Artifacts and an overall better Videoquality.

          Short test combining two glitchy effects I'm developing, frame differencing and luma key. Video of Gamen and a video of me with food in my face. The code is written in Processing and controlled with a simple hand control that I built with Arduino, containing an 3-way accelerometer. When I tilt the hand control the amount of effect changes. Music by Vin Bloovd. This clip also appears under Artist of the Month for January 2010 at http://processing.org/exhibition, and was showcased at Kruthuset in Stockholm in 2009.

                    Here is a "behind the scenes" look at using chroma key or luma key. It is a simple technique and the effect is integrated as a feature in most popular video editing software or can be added as a separate plug in. My workflow is real time using Adobe After Effects. It really is that easy and lots of fun. TRY IT! The completed video can be watched here. http://www.vimeo.com/18157526

                      What are Tags?


                      Tags are keywords that describe videos. For example, a video of your Hawaiian vacation might be tagged with "Hawaii," "beach," "surfing," and "sunburn."
