1. Introduction: Welcome to an advanced DaVinci Resolve class. In this class you will be learning a lot of different tools and techniques to take your editing to the next level. And why you should listen to me. My name is, are they saying I'm a professional videographer and a photographer. And I also make videos on YouTube. And for all my editing works, I use this platform and the best part is it's absolutely free. So let's get started. 2. Things to know beforehand: Before we start this class, I just want to make few things clear. This class is for someone who has decent knowledge about the Vinci Resolve, who has a decent knowledge about edit page, someone who knows no techniques and color grading, and someone who's just comfortable with editing a basic video. Because in this class I will be teaching you something like this. So as you can see, some of those effects can get a bit complicated. So we're going to go to the Fusion tab of the software. And don't worry, I will give a basic introduction to the Fusion tab and then show you everything step-by-step, how it is done. So by end of this class, here would be a pro in whatever techniques have taught you. So let's get started. 3. Speed ramp transition: Before starting this tutorial, one thing you should know, whatever thinks I'm teaching here, what about clips I'm using? All those clicks are in the description below. Say if you want, you can just follow along with the editing process. That would make you learn so much quicker. So yeah, and if you have any questions, all this comment down below, Let's start. First thing what we're going to learn, it's called speed ramping. A lot of you guys might have seen it and this is how it so for speed ramping, what we need, we need two clips and then I'll show you how to merge them and how to change the speed. So let's get into software. So I have, if you see here, I have this clip which is shot at 120 FPS. So it's like slowed down maybe four times. So that looks cool, the leaf. So what you need to be keeping in mind while doing speed ramping is it can look much better if you have already filmed a video in slow motion. So let's try this one. What I'm gonna do, I'm gonna use this clip from here. And she kicks the leaf. Yep. So I'll just drag it to the timeline. And then this second clip. And she looks up. So I'll just drag from here, drag it on the timeline. So now if I jump from one clip to the other, you know what, I'll just color correct this one. So it looks much crispy. Yep, let's do it this one. And here as well, Let's do this. I'm sorry. I just got these two clips. And if you jump if you just jump from one clip to the other, this is how it looks. Pretty simple cut. They both are in slow motion. So now, how do we do speed ramp? You go here to this clip, the first one, right-click here, and then you go press real-time curve. So you see this whole curve sort of comes behind that image. And then I also need to do real-time controls. So yeah, now you see this and now if I zoom in, so what I want to do, what happens with speed ramp is that you're sort of footage goes in normal speed and then you set up for ramp up the speed. So that's what we're gonna do. So we're gonna go from a 100 to maybe 400, 500 in Clip 1 and unclip two, we're gonna go from 400, 500 back to a 100. So that's how it would look. So I want to start the speed ramp from here. So I would just press Add speed point and then I can change the speed. So I would leave this to a 100 percent and I can change it to say 400 and see how it looks. So you see it's moving forward. And now here, I want to do it when she looks up. So I'll do the same thing. Real-time curves, real-time controls at speed point. Maybe for, I think this clip is a little bit slower, but let's see. Yeah. That's how it looks, but I think the speed part of this clip is a little bit longer, so I'll just shorten that. So with all that cutting and pasting the clips and moving around the clips, I have my own shortcut. So if you have a little bit question about that, you can comment down below or you can watch my previous class, which is specifically for beginners. I go like step-by-step of how to use these shortcuts to make your editing go away faster, but yeah, back to speed ramping CC. Yep, That looks cool. But one thing which is missing is that if you see here, the footage jumps from 100 to 400, like really subtle. So it looks kind of abrupt. So what I'm gonna do, I'm going to click here, and I'm going to press this. So you see this graph. So you see this line. So that's sort of smoothing out the speed. So as we go from a 100 to 400, it's going to be a little bit smoother. And we're going to do same thing here. So usually that's just going to click here. So you can also increase or reduce. So this would be the transition period from the speed 400, 200. So I would also make it a little bit longer and now we see what happens. So I'm just going to play the video in normal speed. Zoo. You see how cool it looks. And I would just do it when the leaf falls on the ground. So what happens with this point is that the speed already starts increasing at this point. So it would go really gradually from a 100 to 400 rather than jumping up really abrupt. So I'll do one more clip and then just show you the whole sequence of how the whole sequence can be. So Vigo, here, I don't need the audio. I'm just gonna a little collaborating. If you have any questions about color grading, you can watch my previous tutorials. So you just, because I filmed everything in rows, I'm just converting them and Rec 709. So we've got real time curve, real-time controls. I will do that here as well. Let's go for 100. Are and you can also move these things. So if I move it here, you see, now the whole thing moves a little bit this side, so you have full control on that. So sometimes what's going to happen is that if you, obviously you would do this speed ramp on a beat of the music. So if, if the beauty of music sort of shifts away in the timeline, you can just move these according to the beat of the music to make the footage go faster. So it can be a really cool book. Or if you add any sort of sound effects, then you can use these. So what are we going to do? 400? It's really easy, really easy. And you can just play along with it somewhat. So let's play it and see how cool it looks to you wouldn't even feel it that there is a speed ramp. But there is because if I just delete the speed ramp and then you see it just looks so boring. You see? Yeah. So that was speed ramping for you. And few more cool things what you can do with speed ramp, let me get let me grab a drone shot. Yeah. So with these drone shot, you might have seen in a lot of travel videos, but I'll just show you how easy it is to do. So you see me and my girlfriend was sitting on a rock, Italy. And then as she does Bye, the drone goes back. Yeah. But then you see how long it takes for us to show the whole image to the audience, right? So that's what we're gonna do is that drawn goes slower and then x2 and then normal speed. I'll show you that that is the end of the day. So if I put it on time, I look how long it is. So after the color grading, I've just done it just for the sake of, you know, for the tutorials. But here we're going to add speed ramping. So let's go real-time curve, real-time controls. That's the point. And then, um, I should end the footage. You know, somewhere here. You have somewhere about here should be fine. I go adds p point, but now if I increase their speed here you can see the maximum speed. You can increase this up to 800. So let's do it a 100 and see if it looks good or no. Not sure. Let's see. That's how it looks. So what's what are we going to do? We're going to disclose the scab, but if we close this gap, you see the desk footage gets longer. So what we have to do is we wanted it to play with the normal speed about here. So we can also play with the, these dots. So if I go up, you see in the middle the speed sort of increases of the footage? Yep. But there's also one more change happening. This becomes 12 percent. Does speed original speed was a 100 percent. Now I became 12 percent, so I just go reset to a 100. And then I go a little bit like this just to see where do I play with a normal speed. That's a little bit too much. Mm-hm. Yeah. So I would leave it until here. And then again, I would try these speed ramp smoothing techniques just to make my footage looks like, you know, it's not an abrupt ending. So here's what the final footage looks like. So you see as we are going from point a to point B, it's still so much smooth. So you can use these transitions in Europe edits, and it would just take your edits to next level. Especially if you want to ask speed dram between one clip to the other. Always make sure to film in slow motion so it just looks more natural. And what you can do cool thing about this thing is that you can sort of put any sort of Bush effect, which you can download online on YouTube and put Bush effect in-between these two transitions. And that would look so cool. And you can also add some different sound effects. And that's just going to take your photos to next level. So yeah, that was it for speed ramping and I hope it's clear. Let's move on to the next one. 4. Zoom in-out effect: So next transition we're going to learn is zoom in and zoom out. You can also download few transition PAX Online, which, which you just need to drag and drop on the clips. But sometimes they just don't look professional. So in this saw, so now I'm going to teach you exactly how the zoom in and zoom out works. So you can just play around with as many settings as you want. There's also a free zoom in and zoom out transition pack in DaVinci Resolve. But it just looks really terrible. Trust me. So you're going to have to learn this super easy. So I have two shots. One is yeah, So what I would do, I would try to do a Zoom in our yeah, let's do zoom in first. So what's going to happen is I will just change the speed of the clip because it's going to look a little bit weird if it goes the other way. So now the clip sort of comes towards me. So what do we need to do in this one, we sort of set keyframes at different points. So if you don't know what key frames are, what do you do if i, so that's the zoom button yet. So if I press this key frame here, that's going to set the zoom length of this image, one at this position. And if I go say further here, say about here, then I sort of zoom in. So that's going to set up the keyframe to 1.13, whatever the number it is. So let's see. Now, it takes so long, right? So what are we gonna do? We're gonna sort of move this here. So sort of the transition from one transport, so that transition from one image, 1 to the other is a little bit quicker. And then we're gonna do the same thing, sort of smooth out this Zoom point and also smooth out this point. Yeah. So we did like a third of making like an S curve. And if I increase this, that's going to obviously increase the zoom point and zoom level of this image. Yep. So I'll just go a little bit like that. So you see there's a little S curve going on here. And if we didn't do that, that F S curve wouldn't be existing. So we're going to try to make it as smooth as possible. And let's see how it looks now. And at the end, my sort of footage a little bit positive. So that's because of that. So I just need to make sure that my keyframe is on the end frame, the zoom key frame, if I play it back again. So what's happening now? It looks kind of okay. I'm not going to lie, It's not looking that great. But what's happening now is that and the image goes and then this image just pops up there. So you see now it looks so abrupt. So what are we going to do now? I would keep the length, zoom land one here. And as I go there, I am going to sort of increase this a little bit. Yep. And then I would save smooth it out. So let's see how it looks. To deny it looks much smaller. But there's also one more thing you can do. Just give me a second, so I would just press this so I can see my normal timeline. So what are you gonna do that is if we add a little bit of motion blur, it's going to also make it more realistic. So now it kind of looks okay. Now it kind of looks okay. But just give me a second, Just bear with me. So what are we going to do? We're going to look for adjustment cliffs. So Vigo generators, adjustment clip, drag that adjustment layer here. So these are the points where our zooming thing is going on, right? So they go adjustment Clip and then you just search for blur. We're going to go zoom blur. So you go zoom blur, drag it here. Yep. So now when you see the opacity, it looks insane. Yeah. So what are we going to do as we have this effect on adjustment layer? Select the adjustment layer go to effects. And then you see you can change the zoom amount. So what am I gonna do? I want the maximum zoom to be at this point, yeah, at the middle. So I'm setting up the keyframes again. So if you see here, well, if you see, if you see there, I am sitting on the keyframe. And here I want the zoom to be, I want it to be 0. So sort of the blur goes, goes to the max at midpoint here, and then it sort of goes back to 0 at this point. Yep, So now we have three points. So as we go up, sort of zoom, zoom. You see the blur coming up. And as we are trying, we doing the transition between the one flip to the other, It's really blurs out. And you sort of have that image that you're sort of going in really fast. And then the app. So here's the final effect. So what are we going to do next? You can do the similar way, zoom out. So that was it for our zoom in and zoom out. And let's move on to the next one. 5. Wipe mask transition: So white mask. You might have seen this again in many travel videos or any sort of log are a lot of, a lot of places. And this is how so what do we need to do? Let's grab a few footage. I'll just quickly color grade them. But you see I have two footage To Footage off my girlfriend, Mira. She's riding her bike and it's like sort of at the same angle. Right. And as he, as we are going through the footage, you see these pillars, they are sort of going from all the way from the right to the left. So we would use these pillars to wipe the fee would use these filler so to widen the frame from one image to the other one. So if you're, if you're going to use this transition, always makes sure that if something is wiping the image, that sort of wipes the entire frame rather than partially rather than the partial frame or there's no point in doing that. So yeah, always make sure to keep in mind that. So we are gonna yeah, Just until here. I'm just going to grab the video and this video. But you see they both are sort of cycling in one direction. So I'm just going to flip this. So it looks like sort of, you know, you're going in one direction. So just quickly color grade. And also with this transition, I'll show you one more thing. Yeah, I'll just put this one on board the clips. So it's sort of saves the setting and you can always view the settings. I'll show you later how it works. But yeah, let's go to the color page and now what do we do? This is a new one, really important step. Right-click, add alpha source. So you see now this blue thing comes up. It was not there before. If I press Control Z alpha source, and then I connect the output of this one to output here. Yep, they're just follow along with me and then I go here. I choose the pen tool and I'm going to go, oh, so I want to sort of mask about here. Yeah. Let's get a little bit bigger. So what I want to do, I want to let the pillar pass and then the masking sort of starts here. So what do I do? I would make a little mask here. Yep. So yeah, that's like literally four points. If it's a complex shape, you can choose as many points as you want. But now, as you can see, it's sort of deleting the whole image, but we have to go the other way. So we're going to go inward and we do little bit of keyframing. So corrector and sizing. So keyframing, if your color tab is here, if all the scopes are here, you go to these squares, diamonds. You click this diamond, and you click this diamond. Yep. And what? You sort of increase the softness to really minor. And then go here, here, here, yep. And then what I'm gonna do quickly move to the second frame. So you see now I can already see some of the image here. So I go here, yep. And then I go next frame. As you can see, there's one on one key frame already made. For. That is so annoying. And then I go here. And with these masking says literally no limitation. But you have to be really careful to like really stick to the edges. This is an easy example because it's just a straight line. If it's, if it was a complex shape, It's gonna be, it's gonna take a lot of time. So just for the sake of tutorial, I chose the easy one. But if it's a complex shape, really, as you go like one frame, one frame sort of really mascot, good because it's going to take a little bit of time, but in the end, it's going to be worth it. They have a lot of masking coming in, fusion sex and so hang on. In the end. My whole image is black. So this black means it's a transparent layer. So I go here. So as I see, it's all black, black, black. So when it starts, I see a black bar. I'll address that. Just give me a second. Yeah. So you see it's already transparent, but there was a mistake. What I did, I should have. If I go back here at this point, my key point should have been here. And the next one, it goes like this, this, this, yeah. So let's see here. You see how cool it looks. Let's watch it in full screen. So you just wipes up. And if I go sort of slow motion, you see it sort of bringing the other image. So yeah, that was, that was an easy transition. And if you can just mask out a lot of things. So yeah, let's move to the next one. 6. Spot removal technique: So in this section, what are we going to do? You can see, as you can see, just give me a second Aldus, zoom it in. So as you can see in this image, the T-Shirt of the lady, I'll go to Color tab so that T-Shirt of the lady, there is a little bit of Mark. So how do we remove this? It's not the most technical way, but it works. So what do we need to do? We need to make a duplicate profile, duplicate clip of this one. So I press ALT, press the clip, drag it up so there's a duplicate profile and now it's a really easy process. So now what do I do? I sort of start cropping that image in. So hang on. I'll just move this up. So then I can see what am I cropping? And I was cropping this one. So I just need I just need to grab something really close by, near that t-shirt to hide that, to hide that mask top. And you go sort of bottom. And then I increase the sort of softness. And then yep, So I think I got something. So what am I going to do? That thing is somewhere here, right? So if I just move it, you see it's moving there. So I am just going to adjust on the clip. So now if you see this, so now you see those, you can also see those apples. And the reason is that because they increase the softness a lot. Yeah. So I would just move this a little bit of here. And it's light. It's just like making a patch from one image and putting it on the other one. Yeah, maybe I need to get increased the top CBC in full screen, this is how it looks. And if you see that image without even looking at that point, you wouldn't see it as too awkward. And why this transition where and why this effect works here. Because she's not moving. But if she's moving, you have to track the whole thing. So you have to sort of move the whole image according to that subjects position. So that's going to be funny. So yeah, if some subject is static or if you're editing any photos in this one, you can always use this technique to get rid of, get rid of any spots from the image. Let's move on to the next one. 7. Combining transition: So in this section you're going to learn how to combine different effects in DaVinci Resolve. So we would go back to our speed ramp sequence. I mean, it already looks really cool. But what we can do is also add few more transitions. So we go to Effects, Vigo to video transitions and dislikes tons of effects. Blurred is off. And when I'll choose something here, Let's, let's do camera zoom, camera shape. So I am going to put it here and I'm going to make it a little bit small. So you see, it's not looking really pretty, but just for the sake of this tutorial. So now there is a transition. We can always change the length of this transition. So what am I gonna do? I need to, I want to put another effect on this at this sequence where the footer jumps from one to other. So to put that I cannot just drag and drop it directly. So what I need to do, I need to do the compound clip again. So as I do the compound clip, Let's do trans or its transition or transition. So what's going to happen is that now the software thinks that it's a full image. It's a full clip without any setting. So you see. So what do I need to do is that I need to sort of cut this, cut these because it's a two, because it's two different clips, right? So I need to cut these two different clips again. So I need to go where sort of a footer changes from one to other? I think it is somewhere here. I mean, it's not a 100 percent clear, but the transition goes so quick that you wouldn't even realize. So I will just mark a cut here and then I can also just put another transition. Yeah, So I would drag and drop. This. Looks kind of weird media. You see? So now we have three different effects. The speed ramp, the crash, Zoom, NANDA, the camera shake and that drop of war. So hard to say. But the drop warp in one clear and you can put as many as you want. Buddy up. If I do compound clip again, oh, you know what? That could be a bit smarter. Compound clip again to your electrons or trans two. And then I cut it here because I left my timeline scroll here. Film strip. Glitch can do another glitch. Let's say if my system can handle that. So now we have four transitions insane. That's a mess of system cannot handle it, but here's what to funnel for digital looks like. So that's the first transition with the second transition, with the third and the fourth. So yeah, I hope that you're enjoying the class. Now let's move on to the next section. 8. Introduction to the Fusion page: So let's hope that you enjoyed the class so far. So now we are done with few transitions in the edit page. Now it's time to take it to the next level. So we're going to jump into the Fusion tab. Do not freak out. I'm going to give a basic introduction. So, you know, everything, each state, why am I doing and for what I'm doing. So let's jump onto Fusion tab. So fusion, it's here. When I said a DaVinci Resolve, I also felt a little bit intimidated with fusion and stuff. But yeah, it's, it's pretty easy. So what we can do, I'll just grab a random clipper. So yeah, I'll just grab say this clip, this drone clip, just until here, and grab it down here. So you can go in fusion, you can just right-click, go to a new fusion clip. And that's a new fusion clip, or you just click on this clip and then go diffusion. And that clip is infusion. So What's happening now? Let's start from this corner. So if your pages something like this and this side of the media pool, you know, all that are all the things what we had in the end, the edit section not except for the clips, but if you have affects, you have media pool. We are not really going to use the section. We have nodes. These are the notes. I'll get rid of that. And then you see here, one side is blank and one side we have our drone shot. You can also just make one clip in this emitted same as the edit page. Or you can have the dual clip. I'll just drive it here. And on the other side is the Inspector tab. So whatever effect we are dealing with, we can change the settings of those effects in the Inspector tab. So testing would be attracting you are distinct, would be attracting your eyes. So yeah, these are called nodes. So if you have worked with any previous video editing software, in those softwares, we sort of put different layers and in DaVinci Resolve they sort of play bit nodes. So this is the input, so this is the input side. So if I just press left for you, it comes to drone shot. Right view is already the drone shot. Yeah. And how do I zoom in and zoom out in between the clips? I sort of press Control and scroll my mouse button. Yeah. So yeah, that's clear. And how these node works. So this is the input and this is the output. And you can put whatever settings you want in-between these. So I'll start with something really simple. For example, if any of the node is not ticked, just unselect everything and then just say for example, press Shift and space. So that's going to open the Effects section. And then if I go say blur, Let's just go just normal blur. So that's going to open a box that says blurry up. And I cannot put this blurb box in the, on these nodes, but I can put this verb box in-between those notes, but it's not really happening still now. So what do I do? Push, Shift, drag the blurb box. And now when I drag it, I see this blue thing. Yeah. So I drag it here or you can just delete this. If I am on this line, I just click that so there's no link. I just drag an arrow from here. From, from here. Yep. So now if you see this image is a little bit blur. That's the input here, and the media out with this blur effect is here. And if you see this arrow goes from the outpoint here to the input point here. Yep. And this is the effect mask. And then if I want to change this section, if I want to change something in the blur, I go blur size, you know, it's a very easy yep. And say for example, if I want to add something else as well on top of this one. So what do I do say, for example, I want to write a text and you can same thing. You can also do Keq, you can also do that. You can also make key points in this one as well. I forgot to tell you one thing. So this is our timeline. Okay. So you see this as the frame size. So the drone shot was way longer than this one is like the proper drone shot. But I have sort of cut the section from this drone shot. If you see here, I have just cut this section and this section. And that's what it represents infusion here. So this was the 0 frame which we are not using the using the clips from frame number 270, something until the frame number 570. And this red point is our sort of Timeline marker. So if I straight, if I press straight bar, space bar, sorry, the whole timeline moves and it will show what frame use your object is at. And that's with the blur. So anything what we're gonna do, it, it's good to put it in the beginning. And then you can use keyframing in this one. But yeah, let's add a text layer and this one. So with text, you can either use shift and space, go again text and introduce a text and this one. Or you can also see few shortcuts here as well. So I would just get a text. And now what we can do, we cannot obviously drag it here. V don't know where to connect because this blur is, now you see what's going to happen is that you can, it can only connect to one section. And if I do text here, the blur effect is gone. Yeah, so what do we need to do? I'll just delete this one. What do we need to do now is sort of merge those two effects because, because this is the input, we're going to use blurred and texts and then media out. So we're going to merge those two sections to merge the effects. What do we do? Go merge. So there's a merge file here, and now I delete that. I delete that. Yep. So this is a really important section and I would also get that text. Let's get the text here. So if you see this yellow clip, it says Background. Yep. If you see this thing, it says foreground. Yep. So what do I do? I connect this input point here. The blur goes in the background of this image. Yeah. So if I press here, you see this and this text, the output of this text I want in the foreground, because if you see this green thing, that's the foreground. So I go here and then I say, let's just say text. And the text is here. You can always change the location of the position of the text. And you can do all these settings. You know how you did like all these settings. What would be what you did in the Edit tab? But he would be asking you can also also do these effects in Edit tab. Why am I doing it here? Because this is just an explanation of beginning. Because infusion there's no limits on so many transitions, so many effects that you can do. And that is used in like proper Hollywood movies and stuff. So yeah. So I hope this example is clear to you. Let's add, because I would at least show you at least seven or eight different types of effects using fusion. So let's go with each effects step-by-step. And then I hope that this whole concept of fusion is clear to you and then it's not intimidating anymore. So yeah, let's jump onto the first effect. And yeah, you're going to love it. 9. Remove green screen: So the first topic, what we're going to learn is the green screen effect. So I have this footage where I filmed my computer screen, what a 100 editing on. So I put a green screen wallpaper on this one. And I'm start off going back, back, back. And yeah, that's pretty simple. So I see that it's not super stabilized. So I'll just use the clip until here. I'll just stabilize at first. Hmm, that stabilization didn't work well, let's do a transition and see what happens. Yeah, that looks kinda okay. So you can use your phone screen has a green screen, or if you have an, a proper green-screen sort of clothes or paper, you can use this for this effect as well. So what do we do? Let's go on the first frame. Let's jump into fusion. So you can see as how we discussed before. We have one plate, what we selected, and it's here. So, so what do we need to do here? I would get rid of the green screen. I would just select one of the effects called delta q here. And if I just put it here, let's see what happens. I am going to bring the clip here and that's delta here. I've just dragged it in between these clips, in between the input and output because this is the effect what we want on the output. And if you see here, that's our input here. So I'm just going to grab this dropper on this thing here. Yep. So what's happening now is that if you see this, which means that it's sort of a transparent layer. Yeah. So whatever color you sort of drag and drop on the screen if the software is going to make that color transparent. So now what do we do? Go back to the edit page. And so now this is transparent, but I need to drag some footage underneath that. But if I drag the footage, my clip is as the save. This clip is as same as this clip. So what do we need to do? I need to sort of reduce the size of this one until this crane. And if you want, you can also choose change that rotation angle, the Zoom position, the zoom and the position so that could match the edges of the computer or off your green-screen edges. So I would just do a quick keyframe there. And then when I come here, I'm going to do another keyframe and leave the footage here. So if you watch this on full-screen, That's how it looks. And it literally looks like the footages playing on the computer. So few tip for having a green-screen always makes sure that the footage is sort of yeah, nice and smooth. Then the green screen, what you're putting on your keyboard or wherever, on whatever screen or wherever you are putting the green screen. The green should be consistent. If it's like a sunny day and if you're putting the green screen, half of the image might have a lot of yellows, half of the image might have a lot of blues. And then if you drag and drop the GRI, if you drag and drop the clipper, the picker here, it's only going to select that particular color at that particular point because the color is not consistent. But at this, in this example, the color was consistent. So that's why it was able to sort of look at all the images. That's it for green-screen effect. And now let's move on to the next one. 10. Sky replacement effect: So next thing we're going to learn is Sky Replacement. Let me show you how this work. So I have this clip here scheme using, I have this clip ramps that are walking towards this windmill. I'll start from here. So you see it's really cloudy day and I wanted I wanted the sky to look like it's a little bit sunny. And now what I did was luckily I found this image online, which has sort of similar look off the sky of how my sky would look if this area was sunny. So what I would do, I download that, I downloaded this clip online. So you can also find a lot of non copyrighted images, but always make sure that the image, whatever you are going to replace it with, it has sort of similar colors and it has good it as a good-quality image. So, so we're gonna put the sky image at the bottom of this one. And now what do we do? Right-click new fusion clip. Go to fusion. And let's see what we can do. So let's see which one is the median one. Okay, median one as this one, I would just rename it to sky. And median to obviously would be main. Yep. So here, one thing which you really need to remember, I had so much trouble when I was learning this effect first time. The sky should be in the background. So the sky should be connected to the yellow, yellow arrow here. And the main, this video, this is my foreground color is the sky goes in the background. So I would have I will have to link this to the foreground. Yep. If it's the other way around, it's going to take you ages and ages and this effect wouldn't work. But anyways, let's select our main clip and then I go shift and space, and then I select luma here. And once I select blue mark here, Let's go to the full screen. You see this is what is happening now. And then I do go in Word. So you see now you can already see the picture a little bit. Yep. Let's make our, let's do some changes in the lumen here. So we need to change the luminance now. And what luminance is that luminance is the brightness value. So whatever luminance range of began to select in this one, because of the low murkier, it's going to sort of make that area transparent in the video. I hope that makes sense. So if I just sort of so you see now it's already getting rid of the grass. And that's just the sky is there. And if I go like that, It's sort of bringing that image like really clear. And the sky in the background, which was like the not so sunny day, that is sort of disappearing. But we want to also keep it a little bit more realistic. So I'm going to leave it a little bit faded. Yeah. And now what you do is that our image is not at the same size as our background video. So we go to Sky, Click on this one, and then what do we do? Shift space again. Then we go transform. So it's going to open the same transformation node, what we used in the edit section. So now if I had transformed here, I can increase the size of the sky. So you see it already looks so cool I think. And that's your own sky replacement. So you can also replace that with any video, but always make sure to have this effect going. There should be a little bit of difference in the brightness level. Because in this video, hang on. In the main video. If I go here, there's so much difference between the brightness because here it's like it's just green and a little bit of shadows, but here it's all white, it's all bright. So that's why this effect worked. And now if you see before and after, it's insane, like it's not even looking like it's a real if it's fake, you know. And we can always change any sort of colors and stuff in this, in this one as well. So let me go. I can also change the white balance. So I want to change a little bit of blues to, you see, I'm already sort of making the blue a little bit of sort of greenish. So it kinda looks like the green grass is sort of reflecting on the top so you can change all these things. And I'll just play around with the image and just make it look like more real, you know, and people cannot even tell you. 11. Locked on stablization: In this section, we're going to learn how to move your camera with the object. I have a really exaggerated example of this one. But you can also find this effect in so many ads, for example, this one. So yeah, as you can see in the video is that the whole camera is sort of moving according to that particular object. So that's what we're going to learn now. So with this one, Don't laugh at me. I have a clip where I'm sort of rope skipping. And the camera is static, right? You can also see in this effect in few dancing videos. Yep. So we don't need the video. We're just going to go here, here. And then we're going to go to fusion. So same thing, input and output. I hope this is all of these things that are not bit too much because it can be a little bit overwhelming, but you can always just pause this tutorial and come back again and learn. Or you can always re-watch these videos because I want to keep these each section like really short and simple so you can always just come back and see what all settings it was and revise, revise the whole thing again. So let's shake some cameras. And these are, this effect can also really be helpful when you are the only one filming yourself. So you can just track yourself and then the camera would move according to that. But let's have a look. So with this effect, what are we going to do? Shift Space, we're gonna do planner tracker. Yep. So that effect has been loaded in between the input and output. What are we going to do? We're going to go to the Inspector section and just made sure that our timeline scroller is at the first frame. And then I go set. And the next one we're going to do hybrid point areas. So what this does is that you can select the area, what do you want to track? And then the camera would keep that area at one position and move the other stuff up. I'll show you it would make more sense. So I'm just going to track my hoodie because it sort of pops out from the image because I think my face would would not be an ideal yeah. Tracker at this one because we have a big object, you know. So you're always track something which has a different color as compared to the background. So it's easier for the software to recognize. Here. You can choose change perspective translation, describe it different things and see what happens, what happens. And the next one, what are you gonna do there now we have everything set. We're going to have to play the footage and let the software track my hoodie the whole time. So I'm just going to press this an ad, I press this. You see, it's sort of tracking. Sometimes it doesn't work because the tracking points are not that clear or the image is not that clear. But I will provide you all this footage in the link below so you can just practice. So at least you have the basic knowledge, at least you know how it works. So then you can try and then, then you can try in your own clips. So now that now we have this thing. Now we had this thing tract. Now what do we do? We sort of go stabilize. So what stabilized would do is that stabilize would stabilize the point what we selected. So if I play the video, you can see, if I keep my cursor at say the logo. You see the logo stays the same and the footage is sort of jumping up and down. My software is a little bit lagging. So if you go to a fusion, if you go to here Edit tab, you can see that the image is sort of going up and down. What we can do just zoom in a little bit. And then it's gonna look like a fancy transitions. So you see this red section, it's sort of rendering the whole sequence. And as it goes blue, it has already rendered. Yep. So you can use this effect and tons of music videos or any sort of other things. And you can also use this effect to stabilize the footage. But it also sort of crops in a lot. So you have to be careful with that. So if you cannot stabilize your footage with a normal stabilization, try with this one. I'll also show you one more example. Let's try this effect. So what I'm gonna do, I hope that camera, I hope it tracks her face. So so as I go to fusion, it sort of gets rid of all the effects. That is so weird. So you see the camera is still moving up and down. She sort of going forward and backwards. What do we do? Do it again, pen a trucker, add. Then we bring our timeline bar set, go to hybrid prime areas. Then I go control and scroll the mouse button to sort of zoom in. And I sort of zoom out. And then let's leave it to perspective and let's hope that it sort of tracks. Looks like it didn't trap. Let's try it again. Let's try translation. So you gotta, you gotta try with different, different things and see what works. Oh yeah, translation works until this person comes in the image. So what are, what are you gonna do if you're going to just move the exit point, say until here. Yep. So now what do we do? Same, stabilize. So now you see so if you have to stabilize a footage, it can look so-called. So if I sort of zoom in and if I put my so you see now it looks super cool and she is literally on the same position the entire time. So yeah, that was the planar tracker and you can do a lot of other things in planar trucker, but that's going to come next. 12. Attach text to objects: So let's move on to the next section. And in this section, what are we going to do? We're going to attach that text to the main, to any of the object in this screen, in what it will play in the screen. So let's start with the first example. So I have this drone shot. I'm just gonna Yep, So I would bring it here. Bring it to Fusion. And now what are we gonna do? So we're going to play with planar tracker again. Planar planner tracker, not planar trucker. And what are we gonna do? Exact same thing. I would just set it up here. Set and then point hybrid point area. And what my plan is to maybe write some text on this area. Here. That's all set perspective. I'll do translation and see if it works or not. Yeah, if it's tracking. See the thing that this shot is that it's not too complicated. There's not like crazy movements. So that's why it's really easy for the software to track. But, but if you had like really stubborn movements are really crazy movements in the video, then the software would have a hard time to track it, but now it's just going forward, so it's really easy to track. So yeah, if it doesn't work in your footage, what you're using, maybe try some other footage where the image is a little bit more stable. So as we can see that the software has tracked all of these points. What do we do next is really important. We are not going to stabilize. We go to a corner pin and let's see what this does. So Corner Pin sort of gives us this four points, what we can put anywhere and put fx on this one. So let's do a text. You don't need that. I'll just go text. And this is sort of the green is the foreground. And let's write, say hot. Yeah, and then planer tracker, you see now the hot is there, written there. So what do I need to do is that I am going to bring the hot here. And let's zoom in. Yep. So now it looks like it's literally on that plan yet. But now what do we need to do? As he as you can see, it's very obvious the size of the hood, it's not that big. Increase it. To say this one. And to make it look a bit more realistic, we would do a drop shadow. So we need the drop shadow effect in the text. So what do we do Shift selecting the text box, text node shift space. We do drop shadow. And then as you can see, so as we go here, shadow strength, I want to go a bit more and make it a little bit softer. And now you have your text here, C. And now if I go to here, let it render so you can attach the text anywhere as long as the software can track that plane. So yeah, that's really easy and you can be so creative with that anywhere. So let's look at it. Look at it as how cool it looks. As it's going to stick to the it's going to stick there. It's not going to move. So yeah, that was it for this effect and you can just try it anywhere. And yeah, always make sure to add drop shadows so to make it more real, to make it look more real, to make it look more realistic. And let's move on to the next one. 13. Text reveal effect: So now what we're going to learn is effect called texts reveal. So let's import a new footage. Let's do texts reveal. So I have this. So it's so what I want the text to be here is that whatever texts and my bag sort of reveals that text. So let's import the footage from here. I don't need the audio. So let's go into fusion and try this again. Sorry, yeah, me go here. I would write that text first. So with this one, I just press text. And because I had median one order e chosen, it sort of gives a march file. I need them march file now. So let's do text at this fine TEA dolomite. Because this was in dolomite and I can always just change the angle here. Yep. Let's, let's leave it here. So now what do we need to do is that sort of mask out these text and let it reveal. Then I cross when I walk past the text. So there is an effect here. There's a command here called polygon. So I just press that. So falling on comes here. And I'm going to choose the output of here to the text. So you see everything disappears now. So if I select polygon and go in word, my text appears again. So I want this text to appear when I M sort of here. So what I'm gonna do, I would delete everything. Yeah. So now if I select the whole thing, if I select the whole thing now this is all deleted and as, as I changed the shape of this box, my text tool to review. So I want my text to be revealed from here. Yep. So I would go say one frame back, so I go to merge, Let's go one frame back. And I will also change the color of the text. Probably here. I'm back. So this is all blue because this is all selected. That's why it's doing that. So now what are we gonna do? In word? Yeah. So let's sort of zoom in a little bit. And then as I'm moving, because the good part is that with polygon, you don't have to press any place to sort of insert the keyframe, it's already selected. So what do we need to do is just move the frame and change the shape of the thing. So I will change the shape of the polygon here again. I would go, Let's get a little bit of curve here. And if I select the whole thing, I just want to see if it sort of has the shape of the backpacker now? Not yet. Yeah, I'm going to leave it there. And then what I would do also do increase the soft edges a little bit. It's not not 16, maybe say 000, nine, very, very little. So yeah, that's how the first frame is. Then I move a bit more. This slide. I'm going to change my two here. So you can also check if we move between the frames, you see. And that's what I'm gonna do until a V are done with this clip. It's a tedious process, but you know, you gotta do it. And the more careful you are with all of these points, the better the footage would look, the more realistic it would look, you know. So as I'm done putting all the keyframes, this is how my image looks. So you see as we go back, back, back, it's a, it's a pretty simple shape. So it was, it was, it looked a bit more realistic. But if some shapes are really complicated, Say for example, if I event here and that would reveal my object, I will have to change the shape of my body each frame. Yeah. So you have to be a bit careful with what frame or you cannot be what what objects are you going to be choosing to reveal the footage. So yeah, you see, if it goes in full fledged, that's how it looks. So it can be a really nice effect. You can put in any videos, whether it's a travel video or if you are filming for your client or an IEP, even if you are making a read on Instagram, if you put something like this, it's going to take your footage to next level. So yeah, that was it for texts reveal. Let's move on to the next one. 14. Hologram effect: So the next effect looks something like this. For this one, let's drag and drop our recording what I filmed myself and then I also recorded my phone scroll, you know. So this is the screen recording from my phone. The only thing is I'm not sure if it's going to be sync with my hand gesture. So that also you need to keep in mind. But let's see how we can make that work. So Let's reduce the speed of the thing. I'll reduce the opacity a little bit. I would also crop things from the top and bottom because here I'll just crop it here. So that's my Instagram's if you want to follow me, go along. And then also cropped the bottom probably about here. And then you can always change the orientation. So what do you need to do? You go to pitch and yaw. To go somewhere like here? Yeah. And position. We'll see about the position because I'm not sure where my hands would be at this point. But let's see when I doing the first scroll 0, the first rule already starts here. So what I'm gonna do, So that's, I think is the beginning of the first scroll. I'll just cut the footage here and then let's even my hands go up. They are sort of going up now. Yeah, So I'll probably leave the Scroll about here. So let's see if it's in sync. I'll go, Oh God. So that was our first scroll. And then I cut it. And then I've done the second scroll somewhere, somewhere here. And that I'm going to match let my hand gesture here. So let's see if this works. Let's kinda take so much time and it went a little bit quicker. So yeah, you have to really give time to the, to have these effects so that it's sort of, you know, it looks more real. Let's let's just do until three. So yeah. So now what we have is we have three different images here. So let's make it a full video. So Vigo, new compound clip. And now the software would think that this is a single video. So what can we do with this one? You can now go a bit more closer to me, you know. And this keep it where my hands go little bit further away. So to make it, I'm trying to keep these lines parallel to the computer. So to make it a bit more realistic, what do we do? Legally? New fusion clips select these two. We go here and now to determine which one is which, I go dual screen. Okay, so median two is my scroller and that is on the foreground. Because the green is always foreground. Yeah. So we need to make it look a bit more real because as you can see, it's already yeah. I mean, it's okay. But I'll make it a little bit cooler. So what do we do? We go to median space, a shift and space. You go scan lines. You have scan lines. And then if you go to Inspector, I need the frequency to be looks like, you know, a little bit techie. I would go one full screen. I'll sort of zoom in line sharpness. I would make it a little bit blurred. Line angle. I'll keep it parallel to the to the grid, to my Instagram grid. So you had that already looks a little bit cool. You know, that already looks kinda cool. So what we can do also, maybe you do a drop shadow to make it look more realistic. Shifted drop shadow, shadows friend or the shadow going, the shadow is going there. So you need to change the shadow angle to probably here. So I would move the shadow to be here. Kind of keep it a little bit closer. Not too far. Yeah, I think this looks kind of descent. What do you guys sink? So now when we start this, let it render. I hope it works. We'll see. So we go to scale lines. Kinda make it a bit more techie. Yeah, I think that looks kind of decent. So yeah, that was it for this transition. Let's have a look again. Perfect. That looks good to me. So yeah, what do you guys think of all these effect? And I hope that it was not a lot of n. I hope that you got to get some value from this. So yeah, with each section, if there's any sort of complication, you can just always go back and it's like it's really straightforward, I believe. And but if you have skin, have any questions, just let me know. And with this one, what clips I have provided, they're really simple clips just for the sake of the tutorial. So it's not really like taking so much time of yours buddy up. You can also first try with my clips, at least learn the basics so that there's no error or there's no sort of tracking problems in DaVinci Resolve and then try with your clips and see how you go. 15. Conclusion: So that was the end of the class. And I really hope that you got some value from this class for the project of this class, I would write down everything in the description below. And if you want to learn more about filmmaking, I have few other classes which you can follow. And let me know if you have questions, and let me know if you have any questions with this class, just comment down below and I would be happy to help you out with. And if you want to connect with me, you can just follow me on my social media and yep, I'm happy to know who's watching my classes. And if you want to learn anything else about filmmaking, please let me know. I would really consider that for my next classes. So anyways, thank you so much for watching and I hope that you have a nice day.
