Really useful information, well presented!
I’d love to see LumaFusion allow the use of a greyscale image or video clip as a transparency map for another video clip; this would allow for soft edges on transitions like you’ve made here, and would also allow for some sophisticated compositing effects inside LF. The app Bricolage allows this kind of compositing, but its node-based interface can be a little daunting.
I really enjoy and get a lot out of your tutorials; I subscribe to your YouTube channel. Thank you so much for taking the time to make them!
I agree with you.
For my next tutorial I had to explore the idea of using a grayscale map to define soft edges. Needless to say it will be more of a simulation than the real thing but I think you still will find it useful. The video will be out in a week or two.
I haven’t used Bricolage yet but I’ll give it a try.
