I shot my videos using a T3i and I'm editing my clips using Magic Bullet Looks. I have a waterfall cip and I would like to reverse the flow of water so that it appears to be flowing backwards, then foward in a type of loop. Its a moving shoot (camera tilts downwards) so I'm thinking that I need to isolate the water in order for this effect to happen? Can anyone advise me on how to go about doing this?

EOSHD Pro Color for Sony cameras

I'm not sure about magic bullet..... but in after effects, you could duplicate the clip, reverse it, then mask the duplicate to only show the water. As your shot is moving... you would need to track the motion and apply it to the mask (or you could rotoscope, frame by frame).


Is it essential that the footage moves the same as you originally shot it though? (camera tilt down).... If not, you can just reverse the whole clip so it is in reverse and tilts up?

    • Two 256GB Lexar CFast™ 2.0 memory cards
      By Shield3
      Ebay Auction(s):
      Up for grabs is my Lexar 3400x and 3500x CFast™ 2.0 memory cards.
      Both work great, and they carry a limited lifetime warranty through Lexar if one ever finks out on you.  I used these with the 1dx II and the Canon XC10 and they performed flawlessly.
      Bidding starts at $200 with no reserve and free shipping.  Those 800 megabit 4k60 files from the 1dx II sure eat through these cards quickly!

    • Robber Boys - Canon 5d mark IV testing
      By hmcindie
      My first time playing around with a Canon 5d mark IV. Had the a6300 shooting behind the scenes:
      Couple of things I learned:
      1. Ewww, how did my jpeg become so ugly in the youtube cover view.
      2. DPAF works great, but you may need to fiddle in the menus to stop it from seeking new focus after a face disappears (fast moving action isn't the best use for DPAF). Forwards / backwards moving objects + dpaf is awesome.
      3. I was surprised by how much fun taking photos with it was. 7 fps (eventhough it's just one more than the 5d III) seems to increase responsiveness alot.
      4. I'm still gonna stick with the 5dmarkIII + RAW video. 4k isn't really that interesting to me. Atleast not yet.
