Recently I’ve been working on a new product called ‘HyGear’.
You may have spotted it – on www.hyfx.tv
It’s a pack of video transitions for Final Cut Pro X that replicate the custom transitions that the BBC use in TopGear. So you can save yourself loads of time and get a very similar look as the editors of the series do.
But you can’t demo the product by using shots of my wife’s 10yr old car. I needed a cool car to create a little demo film of the effects. Hopefully something that’s high up on the TopGear Cool Wall!
In steps my mate, Mark Kensett, with a contact to a guy who has this wonderful, bright yellow Caterham 7.
Less than perfect.
But in the end. This rather works to my advantage.
If the HyGear transition pack can make this cool car in bad weather, look good. Then imagine a cool car in good weather…
See the logic?
Anyhow, here are a few pics of us faffing with cameras, sliders and tripods.
Many thanks to John Waters from Swanland Nurseries for giving his time for this. Top Bloke.
(Top Bloke? Hang on. That’s given me an idea for a new TV series… hmmm…)
