Spicemaster/NewBlue = overused? :<

Postby xPiikanyaa » Sun Sep 19, 2010 12:18 pm

Yeah, so I've been doing a lot of amv-watching on YouTube lately and noticed that nearly all the effect-whored videos i see use Spicemaster/NewBlue effects of some sort. I read the descriptions of some videos and a couple of people were saying stuff like "noooo, my spicemaster isn't working! my editing style is totally gonna die without it D8". Is it just me who thinks these plugins are becoming way too overused? I'm not saying it's a bad thing or anything but way too many editors seem to be relying on it to make good videos <_<"

Wrong location but yes. Generally plug-in's that generate 'oké' looking results with little to no effort get overused fast. And it is quiet sad that people rely on them.

I have them, but I rarely use them. Unless I need a coloring technique

I used NewBlue a while back for some coloring but ever since it doesn't work anymore I'll just do the coloring without it. It's a little more effort but still okay.
So I really dont get all these comments where editors freak out about NewBlue or Spicemaster not working anymore :|

They're really popular at the moment, and I'm starting to get a bit tired of it. D:

I use them sometimes, usually it's the Newblue Smear effect or Classic Dissolve from Spicemaster. ;D

I sometimes use spicemaster for the water drop transitions and custom shapes but that's about it xD

Lol yea it is really overused X3
U can get away with it though if it's really blended in with the video.
That's pretty hard to do with Spicemaster though.

Plugins are useless, especially for Vegas. All effects can be created from scratch, it's very easy.

Plugins are only except-able if you can't produce the effect in any way, usually people use plugins for better PG's etc.

No.

NewBlue is a plug-in rooster for both Sony and Adobe, featuring a ton of colour/lightning-based effects.
Basically, it's presets in a sense. As for Spicemaster, I personally think it's really crappy from what I've both seen and tried out. Spicemaster is for most part border animations of various sorts.

As for the topic. I've seen it being used here and there, although not to it's full potential.
