Hey all you Chromanator fans!

Here is blue tinted TV scan lines that can be overlayed and made transparent onto you footage in Chromanator. Just do an inverted garbage matte or mask around what you want it to cover and voila. Its about 260 frames and fully loopabe. It is in .mov format.

Have fun!

Nice, but it looks a lot like the scanlines off of the Duality website (except bigger and tinted a bit blue). Did you make it in AE?

It was basically that with a blueish tint. I thought it looked cool. I added the tint and modified it slightly.

You know that file comes in qt. format and isn't supported in Chromanator. At least that how it is for me, is there a way to change that?

does anyone have any ideas on how to matte out the excess scan lines when using the holo scan lines? I'm guessing we're looking at an inverse alpha channel or something like that.

Any help would be great

Thanks

Yep, you'd have to use an alpha channel. I'm not sure if there is a way to do that in Chromanator right now, but I'm sure there will be by the final release.

IN the final release or maybe even PR3, i dont know, they will introduce masks to do this sort of thing. Also the masks will be used to put yourself behind non-existant things, adding more realism and selling the effect that you are on another planet etc.

Brettsta,

I've tried downloading this file, but it keeps asking for a user ID and password?

Is that right?
