So Film Riot just released a new video 5 days ago on how to fake an infrared video look in after effects. My question is has anyone managed to recreate it in hitfilm? Cause I just can't seem to get it right.
Here is the video
I haven't tried yet, but one of the key things in the Film Riot version is the use of the Coloramata filter--Hitfilm doesn't have that. The closest thing Hitfilm has is the Gradient Map effect which can map a color gradient across the image based on luma values, which is pretty close to what Colorama is doing.
Maybe, MAYBE I'll play around with a similar effect in Hitfilm. Should be able to get a similar effect, but the method will be a little different in Hitfilm--for now, try the Gradient Map for the Colorama steps and see what that does for you.
Alright! If you get something similar please post how you did it! Im sure others would probably like to know too.
Ok I've gotten it pretty close but I just need to match the skin tones... So what is this gradient map because when I search it up it isn't there. I am using Hitfilm 3 Pro.
Sorry---Vegas Pro calls this effect "Gradient Map." Hitfilm Pro calls it "Color Map." Here's it's manual page: http://hitfilm.com/reference-manuals/hitfilm-3-pro#color_2.htm?zoom_highlightsub=color+map
So it's interface is very different from AE's, but you can see it's still taking the luma values of the Target Layer and applying a gradient from a Source Layer. Same basic thing.
You might need to also use the Color Phase effect (same effects group/manual page as Color Map) to correct the skin tones.
OK, But is there any way to, let's say, simulate gradient/color map effect in HF4 Express?
