When beta testing Adobe CS6 I created this video "Time" (Pink Floyd) as a way to put it through its paces. Its much safer then clients projects.
It incorporates color correction, speed triggers,
compositing in Premiere, dynamic links with After Effects, rotobrush, 3d extrusion, camera tracker, compositing in AE, Cycore effects and FX Factory effects.
See if you can find iconic images from their album covers

Very nice! Thanks so much for sharing. Now, and with the exception of Money, I can never get enough of Dark Side of the Moon. I think that I have it in almost every format, from the original release vinyl, a German and a Japanese pressing, a 1/2 Speed Master, CD, SACD, DVD and then several re-mastered versions, in several formats. I also have a handful of covers and tributes.
Yeah, I am a "fanboy."
My wife sits on the local Symphony Board, and as part of their plan to reach a broader audience, I pressured her to broach the subject of performing Pink Floyd. The Maestro nixed that idea, but has paired with a Cirque du Soleil-like troupe to "modernize" things a bit. Still no PF though. My second option was "the music of Mike Oldfield," but that one was shot down too.
Here, the biggest draw of most seasons has been their "Pops Series," with Doc Severinsen. However, and over the last five years, attendance for that has really tanked - I think that most people, who know anything about Doc Severinsen are now gone.
A couple of years ago, they tried a couple "evenings with the music Phillip Glass," but few wanted to sit through 3 hours of minimalist music.
I still love their classical programs, and especially Baroque, but the symphony hall is now only about half-full, where they used to sell out for most performances.
I still think that PF would be excellent. I can imagine them performing Atom Heart Mother Suite, with a Harley ridding off-stage, but what do I know?
Again, thank you.
RDA972. I really did enjoy the process. Adobe folks are cool and smart as hell. I was blown away to see what goes on behind the scenes. Thoses guys bust their ***** to keep the rest of use happy with their software.
Bill a symphonic concert of PF would be interesting. But you would have to strap me to the chair for a Phillip Glass concert. I do love Baroque and Classical as well. Mozart really rocks!
The lyrics in Time really lent themselves to the b roll I had access to so it was a no brainer but to use that song.
Working with the other beta testers reminded me just how mortal I am. They were a very talented bunch who I was honored to be a part of
Tricks and tips can best be gotten from the great seris that Todd K. did at Video2Brain which is FREE.
I certainly understand those lyrics - they fit right into your edit. Nice!
Going way, way back, I used part of Time and Breath, as part of the soundtrack for Lemmings, which was to have been my MFA thesis production. However, we moved to Colorado, and I never got back to school. For the suicide scene, I used something else, but cannot recall what it was, this many years later. Gosh, I hate getting old.
Hope that enjoyed making that video, as much as I did watching it.
