Okay, Eugenia… You’re good. I would love to know what tools, settings you used to achieve this.


This is the admin speaking...

The usual ones: the Vegas built-in ones, and occasionally Magic Bullet. And there’s no point giving away the settings, because they only work for the specific pictures, you can’t just copy/paste them for other pictures. It’s all about experimenting for each pic.

Yeah, it gets down to not the magic bullet but the perceptive eye that’s able to make the right subtle tweaks to make the video pop, or achieve the psychology you’re after. Still working very hard on it.
