SET THE SUN [ creative luma key tutorial ]

In this tutorial we use a Luma Key to help sell the effect that the sun is behind the clouds. From there, it's color correction using secondaries as per usual ;) For a more believable glow, try adding a second SUN layer underneath the original sun layer and add a SMOOTH BLUR filter to it. Then, use a YUV Curve on the blurred sun to adjust it's glow intensity. Download a small section of the 4K RAW clip now from the above DOWNLOADS section :)

FREE TUTORIALS

Below you will find an increasing number of tutorials that I have created for YOU! My teaching style is quite loose and unstructured and I tend to go off on tangents here and there, so please bare with me as I get to my point...some of these are over 45 minutes long! In future I will be creating tutorials that explore other powerful and useful programs like DaVinci Resolve, RED Cine-X, After Effects and more. Stay tuned :)

SEARCH TIP: If you are looking for a tutorial that is not imediately visable in the blog, try searching the same criteria that is inside of the [ description brackets ] For example, search "edius colour" or "edius transparency".
