Here is your film look

Here is your coveted film look. Mixture of After Effects DOF Simulation, image softening, and my own 24p method. Shot 60i with a Sony VX2000.
:-) Comments and criticisms appreciated.

If you want to be picky, detail sort of gets blown out in the girl's shirt.

Should you care? I wouldn't really care too much... although it's fixable with lighting (use a net) or other methods. The footage looks great.

2- I'm ignoring the red bars... did the encode screw up there?

I think it looks good. The shirt detail only highlights a bit on one side. All the fabric shadows from folds and the collar are still fine. I am especially impressed since I have a VX2000 and that doesn't look at all like the camera's natural footage. How does AE give a shallow DOF effect?

sorry but narrow DoF and 24p are not filmlook.
It looks like video.

Work more on imaging softening and levels...

Riley, I'm especially impressed by the DOF simulation and would love to know your method.

according to the description of this forum 24p does stand as "film look"

"Frame Movie mode, 24p and other approaches to a cinematic feel."

i like the video, i think its well done. i do a very similar artificial shallow dof on some of my photos in photoshop.

i bet de-interlacing the 60i clip, and then encoding it at 15fps
will have a better filmlook...at least the jerkiness won't be
a distraction...

I'm not sure there's enough going on in that clip to really judge. It doesn't look like harsh Sony 60i, but there's not enough motion to really appreciate the 24p cadence.

I didn't watch the video, but I wish poeple would stop obsessing over blown out highlights. I can name numerous 35mm films with blown out highlights, and you know what? They were blown out on purpose, for artistic reasons.

So IMHO anyone who critcises 'filmlook' by the fact that there may be blown out highlights is talking, well, I'll let you insert a word or phrase there.
