How to Create Tilt-Shift / Miniature Worlds From Video

A few weeks ago I used the technique called the “rail cam” to take video of a moving train.  When I posted the video online a fellow enthusiast suggested it would make a great tilt-shift video. I agreed and, with just a short amount of time in Davinci Resolve, I had a nice tilt-shift video […]
