Find Your Inner Artist With Custom Video Looks

January 23, 2015 by Joshua Fechter | Blog, Stylizers 3 Ultimate, FX Tips

You told us you wanted artistic video effects that showcase your vision and work quickly with any major NLE. So, we built the Stylizers 3 Ultimate to give your project a new level of surreal video looks.

NewBlue Stylizers 3 Ultimate lets you explore your video editing boundaries with 250 presets in 23 plugins. Diving into the line, you will see a range of eye-catching video enhancements. 

Discover rich painting styles with Cartoonr Plus, Air Brush, and Watercolor, or use light oriented effects such as Neon Light or Glow Pro for stunning accents and atmosphere. Furthermore, explore the highly stylized effects like Metallic, Impressionist, and Paper Collage.

Let me show you some examples and the range of video looks in this powerful collection:

Illuminate Your Scene With Glow Pro
Glow Pro can enhance even great footage by adding a surreal stylized look. This plugin allows you to easily create a warm glow using the highlights in your original image. In the shot below, we added Glow Pro to give the scene a subtle glow for an ethereal mood.

FX Tip: To achieve this look, apply the plugin to your clip and lower the Strength from 27.5 to 18 to give the scene a nice balanced appeal.

And there you have it: Glow Pro, an artistic video effect that makes it easy to give your video a dynamic and animated look.

Make It Shake With Earthquake
Earthquake is a unique effect that really shakes things up. Easily simulate the motion of an earthquake by blurring, jolting and rattling your image. This is a fun effect to use for building collapses, avalanches, huge monsters (Godzilla!!!), or even a spaceship launch.

Stencil It With Charcoal
Effortlessly transform your video into a drawing with the rough details of a charcoal sketch with the Charcoal plugin. There's a wide range of presets with Charcoal to capture your vision and create many powerful video looks.

FX Tip: In this instance, we’ve chosen the Colored Chalk preset within the Charcoal plugin.  As you can see, it’s given us a unique contrast and quickly stylized our scene. And for a more dynamic result, add Glow Pro below the Charcoal plugin to make the light more vibrant. 

Turn On The Red Light With RGB Shift
Give your video a unique and edgy look with RGB Shift. Separate the red, green, and blue elements that vibrate and animated for dynamic appeal. Even use the plugin to create a realistic red/blue 3-D effect.

Paint It With Mural
The Mural plugin lets you manipulate color patterns and focus, to turn your video into a beautiful painting. The plugin features a range of presets to give you a head start on a desired look.

Here’s an example of one of these presets in-action.

FX Tip: To achieve this look, we’ve used the High Contrast preset to create the silhouette of the fisherman. Next, we increased the Color from -59 to -10 to blur the details. And that’s it. Just apply the preset, make a few adjustments and you’ve got a more engaging and visually appealing clip.

Turn Your Video Into A Cartoon With Cartoonr Plus
With Cartoonr Plus, you can quickly turn your video into a cartoon illustration with different settings for color, line drawing, image shading and a lot more. Control line density, paint layers and shading to create a custom look.
