    Sin City style effects? (Newbie!)

    Hey Im new.

    I have a question. How can I come close to the style of effects used in the film sin city that came out last year? I like those effects and would like to replicate it.

    Also, What video editing software would be the best to use?

    Oh b.t.w, I searched, and couldnt find anything on this.

    Kind regards

    I found this! Good enough for me. Although if someone has other links or suggestions please add them in here.

    Edit. This isnt working for me. Tried to download the stand alone version of the software suggested, it is a free demo, but it didnt work.

    So if anyone can find anything i'd be greatfull.

    The effect where you show one colour in an otherwise greyscale image can be done in Adobe After Effects and (I believe) most other applications of a similar level. In After Effects you can use the "Leave Color" effect.

    Thanks for the welcome. Im quite new to this, although ive been "into" video editing or filming etc, but ive never done anything.

    I was woundering if I could do it in adobe premiere?

    I don't think there's any practical way to do this in Premiere. Premiere doesn't really do special effects as such - Adobe prefers to keep advanced effects like this in the After Effects camp.

    In theory you could rotoscope in Photoshop (i.e. apply the effect one frame at a time) but that would be insanely slow. It's an option if you have a short clip and lots of spare time.

    I have done this type of thing in Adobe Premiere...but it doesn't look that pretty. There's a "colour replace" effect or something like that. select the colour, and use the slider to choose the amount...play around with it like that.

    I have attempted using the popular application for the colour effects, however, attaining no success.

    I have finally figured that the best way to achieve this effect for me is through frame-by-frame editing in Photoshop. I feel this way, as my clip is under 3 minutes, and I have the time to create this (along with the fact that the video quality is very low). What is the fastest method to go through frames between Photoshop and Premiere?


    On a side note, I have been having problems with the output quality of After Effects 7.0. The framerate is peticularly bad, whilist output quality of the same video in Premiere is excellent. Any reccomendations?

    Try exporting the video from Premiere as a Targa sequence. This creates a series of stills (one for each frame) in the TGA format which Photoshop can open.

    I'm guessing it's a setting somewhere in After Effects. Go through all the project and composition settings and make sure they are the same as Premiere.

    Color Pass

    Color Pass in Adobe Premiere 2.0 works to a certain extent....
