blender viewport dof test

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-03-23T08:10:55+01:00

This short animation was rendered using the blender 2.74 OpenGL preview render, to test the new depth of field settings.

To use it select the camera view (Numpad+0), then activate the properties panel using "n" and check the "Depth of Field" Checkbox in the "Shading" Section. Now Select the camera and change the Focus-Distance and F-Stop settings in the Camera-Settings tab of the properties window.

bitwig quick trick - creating a multichorus only using bitwig plugins

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-03-17T05:51:28+01:00

Bitwig-Studio comes with a bunch of very cool synth- and fx-plugins and one of them is a chorus effect. This chorus effect plugin only uses one delay line and therefore sounds a bit thin when you want to create a wide pad sound for example. Most of these synth sounds use multiple delays with slightly different delay times to create a more dramatic effect.

Fortunately bitwig-studio allows you to create quite complex multieffect setups and even store them as presents for later use. So add a fx-layer plugin to your instrument- or audio-track

Multichorus - Step 1

Now add 3 instances of the chorus plugin

Multichorus - Step 2

Set the mix value of each of these to 100% and change the LFO Rate a bit. To change the intensity of the effect use the Mix-Value of the FX-Layer-plugin. To intensify the stereo effect you can adjust the Pan-Knob on each of the chorus effects.

Now save the multichorus as a present by activating the Present/Macro manager of the FX-Layer (the icon with the two triangles in the lower left corner of the plugin)
