How to make no-budget video look like a million dollars
Effective techniques for enhancing the data quality of video stream content in a non-linear editing environment
1. Keep Your Camera Ready - you have a better chance of capturing those special moments
2. Hold Your Camera Steady - Pressing the shutter release smoothly and gradually
and using a brace as a steady-rest will reduce body movement.
3. Use A Simple Background - A simple background focuses attention on the subject.
4. Place The Subject Off-Center - Usually, make the composition more dynamic and interesting to the eye.
6.Look For Good Lighting - Good lighting can make the image more interesting.
7. Keep People Busy - To avoid stiff, static poses, prompt your subjects to be active.
Their expressions will be more relaxed and natural.
8. Use of lighting - shadows, up-lighting, fog, night-time,
the bright-lights of the city….
5. Include Foreground In Scenics - add a sense of distance, depth, and dimension.
1. Use lighting creatively:
- can create mood if used effectively
- one of the major things cinema-goers subconsciously look at when watching a film
- poorly lit projects indicate work by amateurs
2. Use movie-like moves:
- do not use the zoom button during a shot
- learn how to pan and track shots
- little touches make the difference
3. Learn camcorder settings:
- exposure, controls the amount of light getting into the camcorder
- focus, more important regarding what you focus on
- white balance, an image control which helps your camera decide what colour white is
4. Don't use the camcorders "digital effects":
- You can't change it later :-(
- The only transitions you'll ever tend to find in most movies is either a fade or a cross-dissolve
5. Shoot using a PAL camcorder:
- People are subconsciously used to 24 FPS which are used in "real" films
- PAL is 25 FPS, so it's the closest you can get (NTSC is 30)
6. Use Film-Look Software like
- Magic Bullet
- Video grain filter in Sony Vegas
Movie sound tracks have become an integral part of film and television, as the musical aspect of films and television programs have become more and more important.

Using computer graphics to create some or all of a scene
Special Makeup Effects
changing an actors appearance with special makeup techniques such as Latex Masks
recreating weather conditions instead of waiting for the correct real life conditions
Examples of Special Effects
The combining of visual elements from separate sources into single images
Often to create the illusion that all those elements are parts of the same scene
Live action shooting for compositing most commonly uses the blue screen technique
These days, most, though not all compositing is done by digital image manipulation
typically the light color is measured on a scale known as color temperature:
As well as along a green–magenta axis orthogonal to the color temperature axis.
Example of a type of colour temperature scale.
Interlaced display draws only half of the lines on the screen for each frame, alternately drawing the odd and even lines for each frame. This reduces flicker by taking advantage of the persistence of vision effect, producing a refresh rate of double the frame rate without the overhead of either transmitting each frame twice or holding it in a buffer so it can be redrawn.
There are various methods to deinterlace video, each producing different problems or artifacts of their own. Some methods are much cleaner in artifacts than other methods.
Most de-interlacing techniques can be broken up into three different groups all using their own exact techniques.
Field Combination Deinterlacing
Field Extension Deinterlacing
