ai models segmentation

VSDC Segmentation AI Models

The segmentation feature in VSDC is a free tool designed to cut out or highlight static and moving objects in video. By using AI models, it accurately defines the boundaries of one or multiple objects. As a result, you can cut out an object and insert it into another video, perform color correction within its area, draw contours around characters in a Hollywood style, create individual masks, or apply them simultaneously with other editor options to create unique visual effects.

You can choose from 4 AI models:

  • FB-SAM: The standard model, characterized by high accuracy in recognizing objects in static images. However, it is more demanding on PC memory compared to other models and has lower performance.
  • SAM-HQ: The advanced model, which offers more precise recognition of small details. Compared to the first model, it works better with moving objects but also has low performance speed and high memory demands.
  • EdgeSAM: The enhanced model, which requires less RAM and has faster performance, making it suitable for working with long video files on PCs with limited resources. It provides good segmentation accuracy in most projects.
  • MobileSAM: Another enhanced model characterized by fast performance and low PC memory usage. It is a good alternative if EdgeSAM does not meet your needs.
    • Watch the tutorial below to learn how to use Segmentation AI models. Then, download one of them and try it for yourself.

如何在 VSDC 中使用关键帧的全面指南

关键帧是视频编辑中定义过渡、效果或动画在视频或视频内元素上的起始、中间和结束点的标记。这些关键帧代表变化发生的位置,如位置、缩放、旋转、不透明度、颜色或随时间可变的任何其他属性。

一个很好的例子是动态颜色变化。在VSDC中,我们采用了一种独特的算法,将在本教程中详细说明。然而,如果您对动画或效果定制更感兴趣,那么请继续阅读下面的指导。

如何访问关键帧编辑器

要开始在VSDC中使用关键帧,第一步是选择您想要调整的效果或对象。VSDC支持在广泛的视频效果、滤镜、过渡和甚至音频效果(如放大音量变化和淡入/淡出过渡)中设置关键帧,总是以'...'表示。关键帧修改也适用于运动效果,如VSDC中的移动动画,在我们的指南中有详细描述,并附有视频教程

如何开始使用关键帧

无论选择哪种效果,关键帧的编辑窗口在所有选项中都保持一致。在本指南中,我们将使用流行的放缩效果作为示例,展示如何开始使用关键帧:

  1. 创建新项目: 首先,通过选择启动窗口中的空的项目选项来创建一个新项目。创建后,您可以轻松地将文件拖放到时间线上。或者,如果您有现成的视频文件,使用导入内容功能。
  2. 调整对象的参数: 在时间线上左键点击所需的文件,导航至属性窗口并选择设置与父元素相同的大小。这一步对于创建放缩效果至关重要,因为它可以防止在放大小对象时出现可能的像素化,并允许正确调整其他参数。
  3. 应用视频效果: 在时间线上右键点击所需的文件,在出现的上下文菜单中,导航至视频效果 >> 变换 >> 放缩.
  4. 打开效果选项: 应用的效果将出现在时间线上。确保效果被突出显示,然后移动到场景右侧的属性浏览器。如果属性浏览器窗口不可见,右键点击效果并选择属性…。
  5. 配置效果的关键帧: 在属性浏览器窗口中,寻找允许关键帧的参数,标识为"…"。在我们的示例中,我们选择水平参数并点击其旁的三个点图标。 注意: 如果在"…"参数旁有一条直线,您可以右键点击它来设置特定的参数更改:
    • 常量参数值:您设置的参数值在媒体持续时间内保持不变。例如,将剪辑的缩放设置为50%会保持该级别到结束,只用一个关键帧。
    • 线性参数更变:参数随时间以恒定速率变化。例如,将剪辑的大小从0%逐渐增加到100%,在10秒内设置两个关键帧在开始和结束。
    • 沿着轨线的线性参数更变:参数变化遵循指定的路径或轨迹,应用三个或更多关键帧,使对象在场景上可见期间多次更改其参数。
    • 沿着曲折线更变参数:这涉及沿曲线路径改变参数,允许在关键帧之间进行更细微的更改,例如平滑地放大或缩小。
    • 沿贝塞尔曲线的参数变化:贝塞尔曲线是由关键帧定义的特定类型曲线,允许对变化轨迹的更精确控制。
    • 模板: 此选项允许您从预制的时间变化效果模板中选择。值得注意的是,有一个编辑节拍效果的模板,我们在单独指南中进行了介绍。
  6. 转到关键编辑器窗口 当您点击参数旁的三个点图标或选择所需模板时,关键编辑器窗口将在属性浏览器下方打开。您可以根据自己的喜好调整此窗口的位置

使用关键帧

在关键编辑器窗口中,您将看到一个表示对象持续时间的时间线,在这里您需要创建关键点以标记对象应该发生变化的时刻。时间线上方有一个标签区域,允许您同时为多个对象打开关键编辑器,并使用这些标签在它们之间切换。更上方是一个工具栏,用于在时间线上添加、编辑和删除关键点。最后,右侧有一个垂直面板,用于缩放效果变化曲线所在的区域。

让我们创建一个简单的放缩进出效果,带有中心偏移,使对象在放大时从角落过渡到场景中心,并在结束时返回到另一个角落,类似于YouTube上经常看到的视频反应。

  1. 将对象大小设置为初始点的40%。在曲线上选择它,并在工具栏上的数值字段中输入值。
  2. 将光标移动到对象应保持相同放缩值不变的位置。在此位置的曲线上双击创建一个点,并为此点设置40%的值。
  3. 再次移动光标,在曲线上双击并分配一个值为100%,标记在此位置,帧应从40%增长到100%。
  4. 添加另一个值为100%的点,指示对象应保持此大小。
  5. 再添加一个点,标记对象将再次减少到40%。
  6. 也为最终点设置40%的值。

我们现在有一个总共6个点的曲线。您可以使用工具栏上的红色按钮启用项目预览,看看对象随时间如何变化。接下来,让我们更改中心值,使对象从角落移出并回到角落:

  1. 在时间线上选择放缩效果并返回属性浏览器。找到X中心/Y中心参数并点击其中任一个旁边的三点图标;编辑器将自动调整参数。
  2. 在关键编辑器窗口中,点击时间线上方工具区的第三个图标参数,从下拉菜单中选择水平。这将显示该参数及其关键点的曲线,使调整中心曲线变得更容易。
  3. 在这个新的水平曲线上创建关键点,将它们放置在之前的点的正下方。
  4. 4. 将红色播放头光标放在曲线开始的第一个点上,并选择该点,然后将对象的中心移动到场景的右上角,调整其位置。对曲线上的第二和第三点重复此操作。不要忘记每次移动红色播放头光标,以检查每个点处对象的位置。

    快速提示: 您可以复制上方工具栏上表示的点值,以精确保持对象的位置与前一个点相同。

  5. 5. 将光标定位在第四点上,此时对象的大小仍为100%,并应开始变为40%,将对象的中心移动到左上角。为第五和第六点设置相同的对象位置。效果准备就绪!

编辑关键帧的工具

现在我们已经使用关键帧创建了一个简单的效果,让我们探索关键编辑器窗口中可用的所有工具,以便您根据需要增强效果或进行控制:

  • 复制端点: 允许您复制曲线上设置的所有点。
  • 粘贴端点: 允许您将之前复制的关键点粘贴到新的曲线上。
  • 参数: 在背景中显示另一个效果参数的曲线,这对比较很有用。
  • 预览: 在单独的窗口中启动项目预览,可选择质量。
  • 播放场景: 在场景中开始项目预览。
  • 路徑属性: 允许您更改沿着曲折线更变参数和沿贝塞尔曲线的参数变化选项的点属性。例如,您可以使选定的点成为曲线上的中间点或轨迹的最后一个点。仅在选择沿着曲折线更变参数时,额外的选项才可用,使您可以根据过去或即将到来的点计算选定点的参数,以平滑过渡。
  • 靠左边锁点位: 此选项在时间线上更改效果持续时间时保持曲线上关键点之间的距离不变,仅更改曲线上最后一个点和倒数第二个点之间的值。
  • 缩放点位: 允许您在调整时间线上效果持续时间时均匀地改变曲线上关键点之间的距离,以保持原始组成。
  • 靠右边锁点位: 此选项在时间线上更改效果持续时间时保持曲线上关键点之间的距离不变,仅更改曲线上第一个点和第二个点之间的值。
  • 插入端点: 在曲线上光标的位置添加一个关键点。
  • 刪除: 移除选定的关键点或曲线上的所有点。
  • 显示时间/帧: 在时间线上显示时间或帧值。
  • 数值: 显示关键点的当前时间位置,并允许以百分比设置其值。
  • 模板: 提供用于更改对象值的预设模板选择。

总结

使用关键帧提供了一个广阔的画布,可以展开并实现您所有的创意想法。我们已经提供了一个基本的概述,但想象一下,如果您应用不同的偏移量,创建组合,并同步所有内容——将实现真正令人难以置信的视觉效果!

看看诸如以下组合效果:震动过渡烟雾轨迹效果使用贝塞尔曲线的过渡这样的组合效果——这些只是几个例子。我们祝您成功,并且始终很高兴在 FacebookYouTube该Email地址已收到反垃圾邮件插件保护。要显示它您需要在浏览器中启用JavaScript。上的社交网络上为您提供帮助。

9 Best Color Grading and Color Correction Software

If you’re a video creator, there are three reasons why it’s crucial to learn color correction. First, it helps you to enhance your videos and make them look professional. Second, it allows you to color-match several clips so they look more consistent. And finally, color correction can help you fix overexposed, underexposed, and washy footage — all three being the result of poor lighting conditions or wrong camera settings.

Effective color correction can significantly alter the perception and mood of a footage.

However, when you’re just getting started, you might not be ready to commit to purchasing expensive programs. Thankfully, there is free software you can use to practice.

For this article, we’ve reviewed 9 best color grading software. These video editors include all the essential tools for both primary and secondary color correction, as well as other features to help you create a beautiful movie.

Key Takeaways

We are going to consider 9 best free video editors with a rich set of color grading tools:

  1. VSDC Free Video Editor
  2. Adobe Premiere Pro
  3. iMovie
  4. Final Cut Pro
  5. Red Giant Magic Bullet Suite
  6. FilmConvert Nitrate
  7. Baselight
  8. ColorDirector
  9. SpeedGrad

What Makes Great Color Grading Software

There’s no short answer to this question, and here is why. Technically speaking, color correction tools – such as color wheels, black-and-white balance pickers, HSL curves, and contrast, brightness & gamma controls – are either very similar or the same, regardless of the video editing software. As long as you understand the main principles of color correction, and how each of these tools works, you can perform it in any program.

Quality color grading software is essential for creating professional-looking video projects.

Importance of Color Grading

Even when using professional cameras for shooting, the resulting video doesn’t always satisfy us: the picture might be gloomy or overexposed, there happen to be some glares, flashes of light and the overall atmosphere doesn’t look cinematic at all. There can be many reasons why your footage comes out in poor quality: bad lighting, wrong camera settings or it’s just impossible to create some particular environment. But what really matters is whether it can be fixed. Luckily, most video editors offer a wide variety of color grading instruments to improve the picture, setting the tone and enhancing the visual storytelling of the movie.

Color Grading vs Color Correction

Although in both cases you get to work with the colors of the video and these two notions are often used interchangeably, color correction and color grading are different techniques. When you perform color correction, it typically means that you want to enhance your video by making it look more natural and vibrant. If you’re merging several pieces of footage shot in different lighting conditions, color correction also means color-matching clips and making sure they have the same level of brightness, contrast, and gamma.

Color grading is also aimed at enhancing your video, but this technique doesn’t mean just color balance adjustment. Instead, editors use color grading to create a certain mood and visual aesthetics, express their artistic vision, so that the colors in the video become a part of the story. Color grading often means using filters and changing color tones; it always comes after color correction.

Some great examples of unique, memorable color grading works are Melancholia (dramatic cool color tones), Sin City (black-and-white effect, plus color isolation used to create a resemblance with a comic book), Batman (dimmed colors, dark tones), and, of course, movies like La La Land, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Scott Pilgrim.

Great examples of unique and memorable color grading works can be found in cinematography.

Key Considerations Before Choosing

So how do you choose good color adjustment software? For starters, you can narrow your search by looking at system requirements. For example, if your computer is low on RAM, you may need to eliminate Adobe Premier because it requires a powerful machine to perform well; or if you’re a Mac user, you’ll have to eliminate VSDC because this video editing software only works on Windows PC (Though VSDC is definitely a compelling option with valuable features, accessibility and no need for powerful computers that makes VSDC a universal choice).

Next, think of other tools or effects you might need for your projects. For example, if you’re planning to use special effects a lot, no video editing software beats Final Cut Pro. If you need elaborate audio editing tools, iMovie might be an excellent choice.

Once you have 2-3 options left, go ahead and test the remaining programs. Only then will you be able to choose the software you’re comfortable with. And if you fail to find everything you need in a single program, it’s a common practice to use several solutions for video editing.

Best Top 9 Color Grading and Color Correction Software

1. VSDC Free Video Editor

VSDC is a free video editor for Windows that has firmly established itself as a highly effective tool for both color grading and color correction, as well as a versatile video editing suite that goes far beyond. Whether you're looking to correct footage with lighting issues or aiming to achieve a particular artistic style, VSDC equips you with a broad range of tools to master your video editing skills.

VSDC is as a highly effective and versatile video editing suite for both color grading and color correction with a wide set of advanced video editing tools.

When it comes to color correction, creators usually refer to primary color correction and secondary color correction. Primary color correction implies “broad strokes,” or adjustments that affect the overall video aesthetics. Such adjustments include white balance, brightness and contrast levels, and color tone correction. In VSDC, you can perform primary color correction using the Lift, Gamma & Gain color wheels, black & white balance points, RGB and Hue & Saturation curves, as well as manual color controls (brightness, contrast, gamma, saturation, temperature, etc.). This means that you can fix overexposed or underexposed videos, correct highlights, midtones, and shadows, and just quickly enhance the way your video looks. To analyze the color distribution and perform clip color match, you can use the dedicated Color scopes window.

For secondary color correction, which implies correcting isolated colors or scopes of color tones, you can use the built-in LUT editor, which also allows for creation of custom LUTs. For example, you can adjust a specific color tone on the video by making it more saturated or less powerful — this works well for artifacts and skin tone correction. Also, you can entirely swap certain colors in the video or make them change dynamically and create cinematic effects like those in famous movies (check out to recreate Barbie or Oppenheimer look).

VSDC has a PRO version if you’re interested in using most popular video editing tools like masking, video stabilizer, or motion tracking. However, if you’re only looking for video color correction software, all the features are free, and you’ll be able to export your footage in up to 4K quality without format or duration limits. In addition to the video editing feature set, it includes add-ons like a video recorder, a screen recorder, and a voice recorder. All this makes VSDC a top choice — just download the program and see it for yourself!
