Here is what I want to do:
Take a single RAW image and manipulate the curves setting (Photoshop/Lightroom) over a period of time, with non-linear interpolation between keyframes.
PART 1: BEST SOFTWARE for exponential/polynomial interpolation between keyframes:
So this is really a two part question. For the first part, I need to know which software out of these 5 would offer the best workflow for this task. I have access to all of them, however photoshop is the only one I'm currently fluent with. But I can easily learn whichever need be.
1. Premiere Pro
2. After Effects
5. Final Cut Pro
PART 2: Working with a single image:
Is there a better way to do this than making 1000 copies of the same image and treating it as a standard time lapse sequence? Like some sort of pointer to the image with changing camera raw settings in time space?
Any other insights on relevant workflow is also appreciated.
The answer to parrs 1 anbd 2 is After Effects. no need to make it more complicated than that.
