So, who wants to see the first ten minutes of my 2007-8 Marvel Comics feature "Shamelessly She-Hulk," with all the special effects completely redone for 2019? Except a couple of shots but let's ignore those for now.

And if you've never seen my 2007-8 Marvel Comics feature "Shamelessly She-Hulk," here's a nice shorter 21-minute reel of the most interesting scenes. With some new effects!

Doing the frame by frame roto animations in the Titania fight was a lot of work that nearly broke me, so apologies for the few shots still unfinished for now. I also redid all the greenscreen compositing, apart from a couple of shots. Often just focusing on getting her hair looking right.

Compare to the original effects, which are much blurrier and worse:

The new Chromakey effects pipeline was time-consuming, but involved:

- Noise reduction via Neatvideo in After Effects

- A loose round of Chromakey to clean up the greenscreen and remove any shadows and stray elements (something similar was done on the original edit), turning the green screen into more of a flat color with soft edges.

- Another round of chromakey to develop a black and white matte, which was sometimes soft so that it wouldn't have jagged edges (this could later be color corrected to be sharper and more contrasty). Depending on the shot, extra layers were added so that important details wouldn't be lost, including adding back the fine details of her hair, which had been boosted to super-contrasy and noise reduced via Neatvideo. All the closeups of She Hulk had more details of her hair added carefully, resulting in a sort of glow around the edges.

And a mention at the site for this currently-unpublished book, to which I contributed lots of text from the Thief Archive.
