Frankfurt | Tilt Shift. Canon 5DmkII

We have used AAE the entire Project. But at the beginning of this week, I recieved Final Cut studio 3 and I wanted a little bit practise with this nice Applications.

My conclusion: Intuitive UI and very fast rendering time.

Here is the Raw-Clip for practice:​vimeo/​

    Great work! do you need to bring it in Motion though? if you aren't doing the enhancing like on that building? Just make a dirty mask with a 4 or 8 pin mask feather the edges and de-focus the bottom layer?
