Hello, I am a music producer new to the field of video editing and stuff and I would like to start making PVs for my music.
The kind of PVs I tend to take as examples are of this kind
Do you think Natron would be an appropriate choice to realize this kind of animated PV ?
Or would I have to use After Effects ?
I do own After Effects but I tend to prefer when I can to use open source tools due to the fact I can use them on Linux as well.
@mapoart: Thanks for the list!
Keep in mind that the masking tutorials from TJFree do not work.
Here are the ones which work:
@SeleDreams: I am producing projection mapping shows with Natron and Blender on Linux. When coming from AE keep in mind that switching your workflow might take a few months and sometimes it makes you feel lost. After around 4-5 months my workflow was a lot faster than ever before and all tools are legal and you even can talk to the guys who write the code!
for stuff you posted, try out https://vidifold.com/, its realtime and has a lot of fx stuff you might like.
Well in a way I am not familiar with after effects either, I own it because i have a creative cloud subscription but basically i’m totally new to the field of video editing and creation, i’m more of a music producer and programmer (so if i have a crash or something one day i might contribute to the source to fix it)
so i won’t need to “port over” my workflow but learn it from scratch
Nice videos and music.
Natron should be good for just some layers of animated pictures and text.
If you want to use a 2.5 (After Effects) or real 3D space for your videos, and or some drawn animations, Blender would be the way to go. It has a seamless fusion of 2D and 3D, a compositor and a video editer is also included.
It opens a lot of possibilities to get creativ with.
Just search on youtube for blender grease pencil. There are tons of examples and tutorials.
Or look here for npr’s (non photorealistic renderings) for some of the possibilities with Blender. https://www.youtube.com/c/BlenderNPR/videos
But I can understand if you want to stick with animated 2D layers.
As I said, cool videos on your youtube site.
