By continuing our overview of NewBlueFX effects, we arrive at a somewhat more difficult effect to implement.
The "Day for Night" effect is intended as a post-production effect that makes us believe that footage filmed in daylight are images that look like they're shot at night.

During the era of the 32 bit Studio, many users were using the "Spot" plugin from WLFfilter to blur a face ... But now with 64 bit Studio, nothing has replaced the plugin we enjoyed so much. Of course, it is possible to use the 2-Camera effect to blur a rectangle on a face, but this workaround is not appropriate for everyone...

In 2014, a user asked us how to do a crisscross pattern for her videos. At the time, not knowing about the NewBlue Video Essentials VI plugins, we had suggested a series of effects using the Boris Graffiti plugin (See "[ARTICLELINK 1774]"). These effects achieved the intended result, although they were a bit difficult to implement. If you have the Boris Graffiti 6.6 64-bit plugin, you can use these free effects in Studio. But if you own the Studio Ultimate version which includes the NewBlue Video Essentials VI plugins, you may be able to crisscross your screen using the Picture Grid effect...

With the installation of Studio 18 64 bits, many of our old Boris Graffiti 32-bit plugins no longer function. After a delay, Boris-FX finally suggested we use a plugin modified from its RED program. I had the opportunity to test it in December 2014 and frankly, I wasn't very happy (complicated installation, EULA Frenchified but incomprehensible, interface greatly changed, incomplete translation of menus, user manual in English that does not always correspond to plugin, RED remnants in window titles and no standalone version shipped with the plugin), all for $69.

I discovered packs purchases of Smartsound. The SmartSound site has sales and downloading conditions not clear enough for my liking. I received a promotional email, on the occasion of a show, SmartSound was offering an additional 20% discount on the price of packs albums. Then, I gave in to temptation and I asked further explanations to SmartSound before ordering. I thought a little tutorial would not hurt you to take advantage of my experience of packs purchase at SmartSound.

One of our readers was enthralled by a video he saw on the Internet. He asked us what plugin might have been used to make the video. Having no knowledge of the existence of this plugin, I thought it would be easier if I could find a way to do the effect and then he would be happy with that.

If you practice Boris Graffiti a bit you can have fun creating and dissecting your own new grid variations and effects by reusing some or all of the tracks in the effects available to you.

Studio 16 and upper versions come with 3 keyers: a luminance keyer, a color keyer and a transparency keyer. As their name suggests, the first (Luma key) uses the luminance and the second (Chroma key) uses colors to select the areas to change. The chroma keyer will be the subject of this tutorial. To summarize very briefly, a chroma keyer allows you, in post-production, to replace a color in a clip using an overlay.

Avid Studio 1.1 and newer versions of Studio are not able to create your own effect presets (audio or video) ? What if your favorite effects require changes every time you use them ? It is not difficult to permanently change any preset and just as easy to create a new preset with its thumbnail library. This tutorial will show you how to do.
