Hi, everyone!

I hope you find this helpful!

To those curious minds out there, here's a screenshot from Blender's Video Sequence Editor:

As supplementary info, to change the color picker type, press the shortcut key CTRL ALT U or click File | User Preferences to bring up the Preferences Window.  After which, navigate to the 'System' tab and look for the 'Color Picker Type' entry which is somewhere on the lower right portion of the window.  Here you can choose which type to use; as in my case, I am most comfortable using the Circle picker type.

Hello Reynante!

Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge with us. Compositing tutorials are rare out there. Good luck for your project.

Great, Great knowledge presented. I especially liked the trick of blurring whole image twice with gaussian filters.

Things to adjust for the next time:
1. Drop music during the tutorial part - it's only distracting, reserve it to the intro and outro.
2. Please speak loudly, inhaling your limbs to the fullest. Sometimes it was really difficult to understand you.

Thank You and best wishes
