It is definitely an interesting time we are living in, that is for sure.

I will throw a little nugget of news out there for everyone. I got to playing around with After Effects the other day, testing some keying effects. I have never been happy with how the bus scene came out in PoA due to the way I removed the blue screen and how it changed the color palette. In some of my testing this week, I may have found a way to remove the blue very easily without damaging the color palette. This is a positive for several reasons. First, it means I can go back to PoA, fix that scene and possibly one other and have that film 100% the way I want it. It also means I may be able to use the same method for some of the green screen scenes to make those edits easier. I have been struggling with the Dudley Demented scene for quite a while now due to the green screen. If this eliminates those issues, I’ll be able to add at least 2 additional scenes back into the Deathly Hallows movies.

So, it has be a positive test week. Hopefully once we get moved in a couple of weeks and I get my new home office set up, I will be able to spend the rest of the quarantine time doing some editing for relaxation.
