If you watched the Unleash the Magic video about Digital Juice’s new Matte Magic series, you saw hundreds of examples of how using black and white mattes can have a dramatic effect on your footage. But there are literally hundreds more unique and creative ways to use mattes that you may not have thought of. In this Quick Tips video we will show you a few more ideas to get your creative juices flowing. One of these ideas includes duplicating your footage and blurring or colorizing it in the background behind your main clip. When you drop a Matte Magic Breakthrough or Vignette on top, and set it as a Luma Matte, you have a powerful technique for stylizing your footage in a dramatic, yet classy way.
