Hey guys this is Eric from finalcutstudioschool.com and I’m here to do a simple, fast, quick, dirty hologram effect in shake. As you can see, I have my green screen clip here. I just added the color space, blur, color space to smooth out my edges. Then I added the key light and as you can see the clip needs deinterlace but after I did my color space, blur, color space and I keyed out, you can see that the deinterlacing just took care of. I can still if I wanted to select my regular clip, we’re going to other and select de-interlace; it might make look a little better. But anyway there’s a common key, you can roto it out or have a key someone on green screen higher, you just need somebody key it out or roto it out.
So now the first thing we’re going to do, we’re going to add a saturation node. Let’s go to color, saturation and bring the saturation completely out; it’s going to be black and white. Then we’re going to add a ContrastLuma and this is going to bring up my value, to kind of bring out the highlights a little more, like so, okay.
Then after my contrastluma, I’m going to add a brightness just in case down the line I’m might need to brighten it up a little bit. I’m going to brighten up a tab now. Then I’m going to add a mult node. Now this mult node under the color tab is going to give me the color of my hologram. So I’m going to go click my swatch here and I’m going to click the purplish blue like that. Looks good.
Now I need to give it a glow and I need to add, I need to screen a blurred version of itself over top of itself. So what I’m going to do is select my mult node, go to layer, right click screen branch, select your mult node again, go to filter, right click blur, branch.
Now we’re going to set our blur to 45 and then we’re going to bring it into the top of our second input of our screen and boom, this gives you a nice solid glow, as you can see she’s glowing there.
No we need to add, give her a little more hologramy effect so let’s add a fade node, there’s a color tab and fade her down a little bit, like so. Now I need to add some skin lines so I’m going to go to image, checker; let’s add our checker. So we’re going to blur it and we’re going to add a filter, blur and then we’ll blur it by maybe 10 pixels and I’m going to set it, the size of my checker, the x size is going to be 233 and the y size is going to be 2. So we got 233 and 2.
So now let’s check our blur, it’s blur a little bit too much, let’s bring our blur down a little bit, back a little bit like it maybe 3, let’s try 4 or 5, even. Okay, now we have this scalelining effects so I’m going to bring it into the mask input of my fade node, like so. And there this will give us our scaleline effect.
So now we need to give this some random noise to our scaleline. So we’re going to go to our fade node, go to the values parameter and we’re going to type this expression, rnd(time), enter. Now what this will do is, is will kind of isolate the blinking. If you wanted to you can even upend another fade node after that and bring it down a tab so it won’t be strong and when you play it, it will blink like a hologram.
As you can see we have a hologram-looking effect now. But we need to do something on our scalelines so let’s pick our scalelines or blur, go to transform, move2D. I’m going to scale out here and I want to scale this way up, like so. And I’m going to bring it up; to the bottom meets the bottom. The bottom of my scaleline is the bottom of my picture.
Turn on your key frame for your pan in here, scaleout and your checkers and go to frame 1; make sure your key frame button is on. Go to your last frame, which my frame is 50 and scroll it down like this. So give it that look like a TV set.
Now as you can see when we go through our scalelines are kind of, oscillating, excuse me, our scalelines are kind of oscillating. Let me go and show you how to do that again. I scaled up my checker board. I’ve turned on my key frame. I move to the last frame, play 50 and I scaled it down, and moved it down like this to make it look like the lines were panning.
Now we have a key frame for it on the on frame one and set on frame 50 and as you can the scale lines move up and down. So now let’s frame that up and show you what it looks like. Not too bad huh? For a pretty good hologram effect.
So I hope you guys have learned something. You could also go in at a switch map and a node to fade out so she will fade out from the bottom to give here more of a fade effect but this, you’ve often put up with it and see what you come up with.
I do hope you learned something. I hope to put you in the direction for what you may need in the future. If you have any questions please get a hold of me, I’ll be more than happy to answer them. This is Eric from final cut studio school saying, ‘I hope you learned something’ and we’ll see you next time.
