Blackmagic Fusion – quick tip: magnifying glass

Blackmagic Fusion – quick tip: magnifying glass

A quick one this time. One commenter on my Youtube channel asked me how to do a magnifying glass effect. In the below comp, I used the displace node to achieve this effect. Very simple in setup, in principle all in 2D, but I added a bunch of nodes to add a very rudimentary magnifier (replace by something more suitable as appropriate!). Just ensure that for animation etc, you use the Center Point of Ellipse 1. The magnifying glass will follow appropriately (just a simple expression to link the 2).

Oh, and right now the comp assumes a 1920*1080 input image. Of course you can have something different, but you may need to change the frame size of some of the nodes.

Download the comp here:

Hey All – first post of 2018! Happy New Year to you all!

My first tutorial and free download is on 3D Text (or Shapes) that are created out of particles and then animated. It was quite a bit of work to put this together, so I would appreciate feedback! Especially if you end up using it in any of your projects. It would also be good if you could link back to this webpage. You can use the templates for your videos free of charge, but please do NOT distribute the files themselves.

Note: these templates (depending on how you use them, config of your computer etc) can get quite heavy on the CPU and GPU and sometimes may result in a crash of Fusion. Save often!

Please check out my tutorial to get the most out of the templates!
