With Kdenlive you can emulate the classic cinematic look of Hollywood films in post production: all you need is a slightly overexposed shot and the effects for the light manipulation of the famous open source video editor
To change the eye color of an actor you can use contact lenses, but with Kdenlive we can color the eyes with different shades in the same shot directly in post production
Filling a room with water to simulate a flood is not practical and cheap: it is much easier to pretend to be underwater thanks to Kdenlive, superimposing the right stock images
One of the most famous realistic effects is the feather dance that comes to rest at the feet of Forrest Gump: with Kdenlive we can simulate this type of effect, using a green screen and a couple of effects for manipulating transparency
Do you have to shoot a scene outside at night and do you only have a small lamp to illuminate everything? All you have to do is shoot multiple clips illuminating different points of the scene, and use Kdenlive to blend everything into one very bright movie.
We simulate an old slide projector with Kdenlive, using the overlay modes and playing with the brightness of the scene. The perfect solution for a teaching or scientist role.
We can transform objects into characters by adding a face to them, making them interact with other characters or using them as narrators. Let's try to give a tree a face using Kdenlive.
With Kdenlive we can make a third eye appear on an actor's forehead, using the two-dimensional tracking algorithm integrated into the program. And with a little trick we can perfectly control the position and alignment of the eye.
We transform the movie of an actor into an animated drawing using the texture we prefer: pencil, paint, markers, we can make it with GIMP. Then, thanks to Kdenlive, the texture can be applied to the actor's silhouette.
To obtain a look similar to the great Hollywood productions, the colors of the film can be corrected to give a dramatic look to the scenes. It can be done manually, but also using LUTs, presets that can be downloaded from the web.
