n00b question about this clip

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sya0mnbl1vs

I like the darkness around the frame. Is this post production or lens attachment? If lens, what is it called so I don't sound silly to the sales person at my local Penn Camera store. :^)

I'd say it's vignetting, perhaps caused by a too-small lens hood, or a feature:) of the wide-angle lens attachment if you're using one. The tell-tale is that it seems to go away as you zoom in.

Looks a lot like the vignetting I get on my FX1 with my 58mm thread Sony telextender not zoomed in enough...

Best damn car show PERIOD! I have no clue as to why they dont show it in the States anymore...

Oh, for the video production, I've always admired the beauty and creative genious of the shows post-production work. I'm sure they are not using GL2's, but I could be wrong.

I want to be able to use that in my videos. Alas, I only have iMovie. I haven't gotten familiar with FCE 2.0 yet.

So there's a filter for the GL2 that can do this? I guess it's better to do it in post, huh?

I think Joe is referring to the black bars effect. Most movies are filmed in a format where they were shown in ratios of 1.66:1 all the way up to 3:1 where the movie was three times as wide as it is high. Unfortunately, because TV screens are not that wide, we have been subjected to movies having visual portions completely cut off so that the image will fit on our screens.
This is where wide screen videos and DVDs come into play. The wide screen transfer process actually shrinks a movie down so that the entire visual image fits on your television screen. This results in what are inaccurately called "black bars". Of course, if you like that look you can add it on with sofware. Joe do yourself a favor and read this: http://www.michaeldvd.com.au/Article...nhancement.asp
