How to Use Custom Shapes Part 2/2 - Apple Color
You can reverse that. You can set it in to inside and play the saturation there and we have a black and white flower. Now this is a good way to see your ring around. Go and adjust your shape, your feather of the shape and that’s not a problem, just go back to your geometry tab and while looking at your viewer, you can just go in and adjust your shape. And then done and it inimically updates.
When you let go or the mask cursor, it updates itself or you can click and drag over a cluster and drag them out like so. Now you can see over here this little purple right here. I can drag this out. You can see now it’s gone, same thing with this. Just go in and touching it up a little bit, quite a few edges that need to be adjusted which you know I’m not going to take too many paints with here on YouTube but I think you guys did get to adjust it anyway. That is how we do it, now it is looking pretty good, maybe this corner down here. Now, they’re looking pretty good. So there we go, we have this perfectly isolated key.
Now we can go back to our secondary and we can say that we want to adjust the outside now so adjust that and up to saturation. We’ll make them release really pop or you could change the leaves all together, different color all together or you can even bring the shadows down and have it disappear, go back to your inside, turn your saturation back up. Now you have just your flower and you can go in and get over the color of your flower and you can make it deep blue or a lighter blue or maybe a mint green. It’s really up to you what look you’re going for. Let’s see what we can do with this here.
Okay now we have us a nice, blue flower. You could even go into another tab of your secondary. Go to shape two and click user shape again and draw a little circle around another spot say the inside here like that and you can catch it. And go back to you secondary and you could change that to a completely different color. Now see, I have a little circle right here. So, let’s change that to a yellow now. It’s yellow in the center, you see.
Now, I’ve the last leaf of the flower and I can go back to my outside and bring it back in if I wanted to, bring the background back in. You can see some lines here or you can erase out everything by hitting this little square. Now we set everything, so I hope you guys have gotten something from this. Here is the original of that. Here it is now.
So I mean you can totally do some really wonderful things within color. You really can give it a shot. That’s how you use custom user shapes. You can even track these shapes along with moving objects and geometry tabs. As you can see, there is a huge tracker option and if this was a moving flower or a shirt on a person or a hat on their head, I just go on and use the tracker and set my tracker which would be right here under the tracking tab. You say new and it brings out this little tracker right here, set it where you want. Go process, and when you start processing it, and sometimes it’s a pretty good tracker.
If you have to go back you can also mainly do it and manually do it by hand. So that is how you would change the color of somebody’s shirt that is in the movie and that’s not just as a still. We’re working with stills here so I just want to let you know that it’s possible to work with moving footage.
So, there you go, let me show you the original of this one and again there it is. And you can see how well Color Adjust. It’s a really wonderful application. You can even use the live dropper if you want to like I can isolate this blue over here with my cross here. You can see right there. I can maybe change the color of your shirts, just go in here with the cross here. I isolate some blue and you can go in and jot some different colors. Now you can see there like a light blue.
But basically, I just want to show you how to use your shapes. That is how you do it. Under the geometry tab, don’t forget to attach your shape after you made it. This is your pan and scan. We can go over that later. As you can see, where I move it around over here on the viewer is how that is and you can key frame this here. You can set it right here, and you can set a key frame and then you move it down here and send another key frame. Then it will paint your picture for you. You can zoom it out like this, zoom it right in, hand it over. It’s really, really nice especially for still photography.
So I hope this has been something to set you in the right direction. If you have any questions please get a hold of me. I will be more than happy to answer it if I can. This is Emeek 77 for finalcutstudioschool.com saying see you next week.
