Comic Book SC
Turn any video into a video comic book! This effect does more than simply halftone the image, it also outlines, controls the size and contrast of the halftone dots, allows for a paper tint, includes “levels” controls and a “fader” to mix the amount of the effect to apply.
This effect is designed to work with the Color Board either pre- or post-effect.
Comic Book SC will require a high bit rate encoding and is not recommended for output to be shown on YouTube, Vimeo or any of the other free services unless you can be assured that your video will not be re-encoded to a smaller bit rate upon uploading. This effect looks outstanding encoded with ProRes 422 LT or higher. Video directly output as H.264 from FCPX will look quite good, but it will be better to re-encode from ProRes output in Quicktime 7 Pro or Compressor at a higher bitrate (around 50Mbps for 1080).
Demo video: 1280×720 encoded at 28 Megabits/sec. Video size is 356MB. These settings are much higher than allowed on YouTube and the rest.
