Day for night -IN POST (using software)
Posted 01 March 2007 - 07:22 PM
I've been fiddling with this using Sony Vegas Video, (have used AfterFX in the past), and not quite getting it to look like I want it to.
Anyone here have any nifty tricks or suggestions?
It was shot on 16mm film during the day, out in the woods, some shots with a fog machine, so I think it will look good if I can get this down.

I'll bet you'd get some cool (and disparate) approaches from the gang here...

Not quite "night", but more like dawn or dusky looking, so not completely bluish.
Just keep in mind that day for night is not usually achieved with just a change in color temperature. You'll also have to increase the contrast by deepening the blacks and really saturating most the chroma (color) in your images. Adjusting brightness as well...because once you change one thing, you gotta change everything, or else you won't be fooling anybody.
You can't just have a bluish image with the same contrast ratios and color hues of a daytime scene. It's a huge "tell"
