    A Tutorial for Pan and Zooming Stills with Boris Red

    Hey guys, I just posted a Video tutorial on how to do Pan and Zoom type moves on Hi-resolution stills using Boris Red and the Avid on my blog. If you want to check it out, that would be great!

    Nice Ryan, and great timing considering the Avid P&Z issues people are having at the minute.

    I know you touch upon Keyframes in an earlier tutorial, but I might have mentioned the Interpolation settings needed, as in my experience this is what messes people up the most when first getting their heads around Boris - the default something weird if I remember correctly.  And maybe the 'deflicker' setting in the render options.

    Nit-picking here, and I love the other examples you showed.  I'd would to see how you created the very AE splitting of Foreground and Background with the move (especially if you managed to avoid using PS in the equation); and the Angled Text with soft blurs and highlights.  Hopefully both of these will be future Tutorials!

    Great work.

    Thanks so much for the kind words. I just posted a new blog showing how to use the Ease In/Out Keyframes. You can check it out here...

    And for sure setting the 1:2:1 deflicker setting on is very important. It's hard to go over everything in a short video tutorial like that. I could talk for days about Boris Red, but I'm trying to keep it simple at first to perhaps encourage people to start using this powerful plug in.

     

    I've gotten requests from other folk too asking for instructions on the "AE splitting foreground and Background" effect. I've started work on it already, but just so you know, it does involve Photoshop.  But depending on the photo, it could be done completely in Boris Red.

    Ok, now that was hands down the best explanation of Boris Keyframing (and it's 'weirdness') I've ever seen - and I'm including the good (if dry) tutorials by Steve Oakley.  You'll be giving Douglas a run for his money...

    Kudos Ryan.

    And I know what you mean about only concentrating on only certain aspects in a tutorial - you can't talk about everything.  I actually mentioned it more for those people who ran into issues with keyrames/flicker, so that they'd know it's not them and that's there's something they can do.

    As for the AE-esque tutorial, well a lot of people have Photoshop (or Gimp or something on they're machines), so that's not a problem - and they have the best 'selection' tools out there.  It's always cleaner to try and stay in the one app, but as we all know, that's often just not possible.

    Looking forward to it Ryan!

    ps. Let me know if you want anymore 'suggestions' for Boris Tuts!

    And that is something I welcome.

    I am not very skilled in using AvidFX (Boris Red) so Ryan's excellent Tutorials on using it are like a breathe of Spring!

    I have posted some tips to Ryan to help him upload to the Tips & Tutorials Area.

    Looking forward to the next one!

    Re: A Tutorial for Pan and Zooming Stills with Boris Red

    Thanks guys!  I've almost completed my next tutorial, although it may be a day or two before I post it. I've had a slow week so I've been able to crank a few of these out lately. But actual paying work starts coming in again for me next week, so it may be a week or two before i get another tutorial done.

    Seriously, if you have any questions or suggestions, I'd be glad to hear them.

     

    I imagine the majority of my tutorials will end up being about Boris Red. I love that plugin and use it for so many different things. It surprises me that very few other people use it, considering it basically provided for free with Avid. I honestly believe it's the best plugin out there for doing Pan and Zoom on Hi resolution stills. The abilty to keep it all in the avid and not have export QT's and then re-import QT's from AE is a huge time saver. I just wish more people knew about it. Hopefully, that's something I can change.

    A tip for your next tutorial...make sure you select the checkbox for "Avid FX" on the Relevant Products list when creating the tutorial on Video Community. That way customers following Avid FX tuts will be sure to see yours.

    Re: A Tutorial for Pan and Zooming Stills with Boris Red

    Hello,

    Links to tutorials do not work. Can anybody update? Sometimes it is quite difficult to achieve a smooth movement through photos. In key points, a motion rebound occurs, despite any selected types of interpolation. At the same time, the movements themselves often have a curved trajectory. How to achieve a smooth pan and zoom inside Boris RED(AvidFX)? Thanks in advance!
