Looks great! Looks so good I'd hate it to get lost w/ that smudge. You can fix easily enough in After Effects or even in your editor.

I fixed it in the trailer.. here's what I did:


original : http://www.twodogfilms.com/fix/Image19.jpg

fixed : http://www.twodogfilms.com/fix/Image19-fixed.jpg

matte : http://www.twodogfilms.com/fix/matte.jpg

Either load your exported finished file, or put this in your existing edit (and then reexport - try to cut down on any many full compressions as possible).

Just load the matte image as an additional track. Set the composite mode to ADD and set the track opacity to 3 or 4% (experiment with this). I used a value of 2.5 and it's barely noticable (still there, but much better). Find a happy medium of balancing out too much bright and white and getting rid of the smudge.

If in doubt, here's a screenshot of what I had (ignore the 2nd entry on the timeline of your wmv file - I should have removed it (not needed)).

Best of luck!

Nothing short of beautiful!
And very professional results!
People who have you as DP are very lucky.
Thanks Mathieu! I actually was not the DP on these films though, I was the director. So, I should say that I am very lucky to have worked with the DPs I have. They've been great. I'm very involved with the visuals of the film but I have to give credit to them.

Wow Patrick. Thank you very much. I'm still very much in the editing phase, but when it comes time to color correct and master I'll look into your technique. Thanks for taking the time to do that. Much ablidged.

For the audio, where the music pics up and becomes more epic sounding, what track or composer did that? I have to know, I can't get it out of my head. btw, great work!

Josh,
Did you make the Mini 35 or you bought it?
