Want to turn your videos into art? It’s time to get Painterly!
Painterly is an easy to use effect for Adobe After Effects that transforms ordinary looking video material into truly inspirational images. It literally makes your footage look like an oil painting – believably hand painted. And just look at the quality and detail….
Painterly is the perfect effect for a family album, wedding portrait, or for those beautiful landscape shots from your last holiday. It gives a beauty, warmth and intensity to any video material.
The effect is built up in layers, imitating the real way paint is applied to an oil painting. Painterly gives you control over the looseness, texture and detail of these layers and allows you to adjust time-based factors like frame-rate and variance. So you can decide to paint a more realistic, impressionistic or even expressionistic picture.
Painterly works with all video material (and still photos too), but it works especially well with slow motion footage – and with Painterly, even footage shot with a natural frame rate is easily converted to slow-mo. More details on this and other tricks in the user guide.
For ease of use, the effect has 8 preset settings to choose from. If you want to fine-tune, the controllers give you a fine level of control over the artistic style you want.
So come on, let the artist in you run wild. Get Painterly!
