ever edited a video and wondered what a ‘ken burns’ was? 😏
#tdil who ken burns is and why there’s a video effect named after him! 🎥
for those of you who aren’t aware, ken burns is an effect that you can use when adding a static image to a video. instead of just filling the screen with the whole static image, the effect will crop to a detail and then pan across the image … it’s just a tad more interesting 👍🏻.
but why is it called ‘ken burns’?! whilst you may think that you can guess the answer quite easily … it isn’t actually just a case that a dude called ken burns invented it!
the effect was actually just named after ken because of he got known for using it extensively in his documentary films … (ken is a documentary filmmaker 🎥).
in fact, the effect itself actually predates him! ken accredits another documentary filmmaker named ‘jerome liebling’ for teaching him the technique in the first place. (update: you can read all about jerome ->here<-)
if i’m honest, i think that kind of sucks for poor ole jerome 😢 … you teach your pal a trick, he overuses it and then it’s named after him instead! #charming
